Review: The Hot Zone: The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola VirusUser Review - Liane - Goodreads
Gripping and scary. Nonfiction written as compellingly as a novel. This is a 20+ year old story, with new twists having come into the story. I will be doing some more research on Ebola and level 4 biohazards as a consequence of this read. Read full review
