BOOK REVIEW

THE COLD MOONS by Aeron Clement
Released: April 17, 1989

THE INQUISITOR by Peter Clement
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Dec. 28, 2004

"Smashing ER scenes, code blues, and a masked staff in orange space suits underpin a page-turner plotted for heart. Well done, nearing Tess Garritsen's bone-chillers."
From former ER physician and novelist Clement, who moved into hardcover with 2001's Mutant, a gripping but shallow thriller about mutant genes in the food chain, now does his best work yet, building solid characters and the biggest US epidemic since the Spanish flu outbreak of 1918.
