Crisis in the Red Zone By Richard Preston AudioBook Summary

New York Times Best Seller

An urgent wake-up call about the future of emerging viruses and a gripping account of the doctors and scientists fighting to protect us, told through the story of the deadly 2013-2014 Ebola epidemic 

Crisis in the Red Zone reads like a thriller. That the story it tells is all true makes it all more terrifying.” (Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sixth Extinction)

From the number-one best-selling author of The Hot Zone, now a National Geographic original miniseries….

This time, Ebola started with a two-year-old child who likely had contact with a wild creature and whose entire family quickly fell ill and died. The ensuing global drama activated health professionals in North America, Europe, and Africa in a desperate race against time to contain the viral wildfire. By the end – as the virus mutated into its deadliest form, and spread farther and faster than ever before – 30,000 people would be infected, and the dead would be spread across eight countries on three continents. 

In this taut and suspenseful medical drama, Richard Preston deeply chronicles the pandemic, in which we saw for the first time the specter of Ebola jumping continents, crossing the Atlantic, and infecting people in America. Rich in characters and conflict – physical, emotional, and ethical – Crisis in the Red Zone is an immersion in one of the great public health calamities of our time.
