The Hot Zone: The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus

$6.99$2.99Audiobook: 9.49 (Audible)

One of the Spooky (but Not Too Scary) books, although if "terrifying" is in the subtitle, perhaps this one goes beyond merely "spooky"? In this nonfiction thriller, Preston details the emergence of the ebola virus in a pageturning, day-by-day, truth-is-scarier-than-fiction account, starting with the initial discovery of the virus in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, and tracing its origin back to the central African rain forest.
