The Doomsday Carrier

(1976)
A novel by

 
 
A master's skill in intrigue and an equal deftness in the portrayal of animals combine here in a highly original novel of suspense. Charlie is a specimen chimpanzee maintained by the Ministry of Defense for dubious experimental purposes. Soon after he has been injected with a devastating plague bacillus, he escapes. At first an innocent wanderer under summer skies, in only twenty-one days he will become infectious, and a population of millions will then be in hideous danger. Discreetly the authorities mount a full-scale search; but fearing the political and international consequences, they dare not reveal the sordid truth. As a result the search is compromised at every turn, while risks and tensions mount - to the very dawn of doomsday.
