This book was thrust at me by a fellow BC'er "6of8"from the book pile at our 1st of the New Year 2020 BCinDC meet-up. At 1st I thought it was a Stephen King thriller, not my cup of tea, got ready to put it back when "ResQgeek" indicated it was a non-fiction about the Ebola virus and mumbled something about Reston. Va. So I took it home with me to put on my TBR pile.

Coincidentally, this morning before the BCinDC meet-up today, I had been a participant in a medical/scientific drawing session at the National Museum of Health & Medicine (NMHM) aka The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP)/ Walter Reed Army Medial Museum.

This book fits in with the scary newly identified coronavirus outbreak from Wuhan, China, the WHO reported, Jan.9, 2020. 1st noticed in late 2019.

I am currently reading this book, coincidentally during the new coronavirus outbreak.

This book is not fiction. It is very well written and fast paced. It reads like a thriller/detective novel. About the origins and incidents involving viral hemorrhagic fevers, particularly ebolaviruses and marburgviruses. It is written so the layman can easily understand the epidemiology and ecology of zoonotic viral outbreaks.

keywords: Reston, Virginia. Ebola
