Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A highly infectious, deadly virus from the central African rain forest suddenly appears in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. There is no cure. In a few days 90 percent of its victims are dead. A secret military SWAT team of soldiers and scientists is mobilized to stop the outbreak of this exotic "hot" virus. The Hot Zone tells this dramatic story, giving a hair-raising account of the

appearance of rare and lethal viruses and their "crashes" into the human race. Shocking, frightening, and impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone proves that truth really is scarier than fiction.

Synopsis:

"Popular science writing at its best and the years most infectious page-turner" (People), this two-million-copy bestseller is "a top-drawer horror story...the best literary roller coaster of the fall" (Newsweek).
