Book Review: The Demon in the Freezer: A True Story

The Demon in the Freezer: A True Story
by Richard Preston
This nonfiction book reads like a medical thriller. Preston describes the circumstances surrounding the anthrax scares in 2001 and goes on to detail the worldwide battle that was fought to iradicate a much more deadly virus - smallpox. In spite of it's iradication, this virulent disease sleeps in many bio-research facilities around the world and the thought that it could be used as a bio-weapon is a scary one.The ease with which Preston makes you believe this is possible is made all the more disturbing by the fact that this is a work of nonfiction.Anyone addicted to medical thrillers/drama (both TV and book) should give this book a try.
