The dramatic and chilling story of an Ebola virus outbreak in a surburban Washington, D.C. laboratory, with descriptions of frightening historical epidemics of rare and lethal viruses. More hair-raising than anything Hollywood could think of, because it's all true. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Preston's account of an outbreak of a strain of the Ebola virus among monkeys in a Virginia laboratory has spent more than 30 weeks on PW's bestseller list.

The book starts out a bit slow but turns into a nail-biter after that. This is the first book I can recall reading where I actually cheered out loud for one of the characters. Read morePublished 9 months ago by datagod
I read this book cover to cover, no breaks, overnight.
A very well written horror story, made all the more scarier by the fact that it's all true.
Never before in the history of this virus has this book been more relevant. I implore anyone considering reading this book to do so immediately. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Jessica
