It is a dramatic, heart-stopping account of a very real threat, told with the skill and authority, and well researched. 3) "The Demon in the Freezer" (2002) - the first major bioterror event in the United States - the anthrax attacks in October 2001 - was a clarion call for scientists who work with "hot" agents to find ways of protecting civilian populations against biological weapons. 4) "Crisis in the Red Zone" (2019) - The concluding book in the author's "The Dark Biology Series" - The book makes clear that the outbreak of 2012-2014 is a harbinger of further, more severe outbreaks, and of emerging viruses heretofore unimagined--in any country, on any continent.
