Synopsis:

In his first nonfiction book since THE HOT ZONE, Richard Preston delivers a masterfully crafted true-life medical thriller about the return of smallpox--this time in an even deadlier, genetically engineered form. Eradicated in 1979, smallpox is back--and has crept onto the international black market, where it is prized as the mother of all biological weapons.
THE DEMON IN THE FREEZER is the story of a crusade by three doctors--two men at the height of their careers and a feisty young woman, an upstart twenty-eight-year-old infectious disease expert--to find the mastermind of the Anthrax attacks in October 2001, and to stay a step ahead of the bioterrorists by anticipating their next move. The problem is, they can't seem to agree on how it should be done. And when you're working in the hot zone, conflict comes at a lethal price.


Review:

"In a taut, riveting narrative that rivals that of his earlier book, THE HOT ZONE, Preston tells the story of last fall's anthrax letter attack and describes the potential threat, and the likely consequences, of smallpox being used as a biological weapon."

Ed Regis, Washington Post, 12/01/2002

Review:

"Preston humanizes his science reportage by focusing on individuals--scientists, patients, physicians, government figures. That, and a flair for teasing out without overstatement the drama in his inherently compelling topics, plus a prose style that's simple and forceful, make this book as exciting as the best thrillers, yet scarier by far, for Preston's pages deal with clear, present and very real dangers."
