    A highly infectious, deadly virus from the central African rain forest suddenly appears in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. There is no cure. In a few days, 90 percent of its victims are dead. A secret military SWAT team of soldiers and scientists is mobilized to stop the outbreak of this exotic "hot" virus. The Hot Zone tells this dramatic story, giving a hair-raising account of the appearance of rare and lethal viruses and their "crashes" into the human race. Shocking, frightening, and impossible to ignore, The Hot Zone proves that truth really is scarier than fiction.

  • Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

    Story
    (165)

    Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history. Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

    Lawrence D. Clayton says: "On an equal footing with Helter Skelter"
    "The most complete research I've found"
    Overall

    It is clear from Bugliosi's "Reclaiming History" that he has done a thorough job in researching all the aspects of the case that has more controversy than any other case in American History. He lays everything out so completely that if you follow all his research for yourself, there will be few unanswered questions. I truly enjoyed hearing this all followed so logically and unravelling all the conspiracy theories. A wonderful and informative read.

    Story

    On September 6, 1945, less than a month after the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, George Weller, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, became the first free Westerner to enter the devastated city. Going into the hospitals and consulting the doctors of the bomb's victims, Weller was the first to document its unprecedented long-range medical effects. He also became the first to enter the nearby Allied POW camps, which rivaled those of the Nazis for cruelty and bested them for death count.

    Harold says: "First Into Nagasaki"
    "Very intense and sadening"
    Overall

    I found myself sadened and I had some difficulty getting through it. Although I knew something of the torture the Japanese dispensed during WWII, this book really sheds needed light on the amount of brutality experienced at the hands of the Japanese Army. A gruesome story that just had to be told in its truth and entirety. This book hit's that mark quite well. Something, I will never forget and will say an additional prayer for our heros who fought so bravely and suffered so much.
