The Meyersco Helix by Andrew McCoy

Andre Jute writes that this book was first published in 1988 and was re-edited, but there was no sign of it being over 20 years old. It seemed completely in the now. I like a good biological thriller and this was just that. The thought that something could so easily escape into the atmsphere and the only way to stop it is with high collateral damage is scary.

In the main, this story is very much a chase story. I did have a problem with it at one point where the pursuers had stopped to do some nasty deeds, yet caught up with the pursued even though he appeared to be travelling via faster means.

There were some twists and turns that caught me out and - as a reader - I found the ending to be satisfactorily unexpected.
