    (Successor to “The Hot Zone”)

    I read “The Hot Zone” by Richard Preston years ago. I am a big fan of medical thrillers. So a nonfiction medical thriller was no-brainer. Plus, seeing the blurb on the back of the book by Stephen King I had to buy it. The quote started out like this: “The first chapter is one of the most horrifying things I’ve ever read in my whole life...and then it gets worse...” Stephen King The story told in “The Hot Zone” happened minutes from my house in the same town that my son went to school. Preston described in his book how the government attempted to cover up this event. He was dead-on. The only thing I ever heard was a DJ say, “There’s something going on at the monkey house.” “Crisis in the Red Zone” (successor to “The Hot Zone”) is about the 2013-2014 Ebola outbreak, the deadliest Ebola outbreak in history, and the outbreak in 1976. There were six known species of Ebola, now there are seven. Richard Preston does a great job detailing where the breakout started and how it expanded. I must admit, after reading about this strain, to wondering if some of these diseases are government engineered and released in Africa. Kudos to Preston for reporting on this story. I will not be stepping foot in Africa after reading his books. They have too many nasty diseases going on over there.

    News headlines of today!

    forensic-medicine, true-horror, viral-disease, Africa, contagion Worse than Yellow Fever, Typhoid, or Malaria but mimicking both for a time, the scourge of Ebola was first seen in a village in Zambia in 1976. It certainly didn't stop there but went on a killing spree that spread and defied the medical field and investigators. Written in a style that translates Medicalese into a language that anyone can understand and occasionally using very short sentences to emphasize the unthinkable, this is not just a history, but a warning. The scope of Ebola is somewhat diminished today, but who knows what other virus could mutate into the next horror. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Random House Publishing Group via NetGalley.
