Review: This book was one of my personal favorites. As a reader, I desire action, suspense, and mystery. The Satan Bug, by Alistair Maclean, exceeded the standards I have set for “good books”. In this book, Agent Pierre Cavell learns about the tragic murder of his friend, a scientist at the well-guarded Mordon Research Center. Along with this, vials of Botulinus and the Satan Bug (which is capable of wiping out life on Earth with one small spoon) have gone missing. Angered and sorrowed by his loss of a good friend, Cavell decides to investigate the murder and theft. Soon after, the investigators are faced with a threat – the murderer was planning to drop the vial containing the Satan Bug. Thus begins this fast paced novel, with 24 hours to solve this case.  I would definitely recommend this to readers seeking action, mystery and suspense.
