    "This book will give you nightmares," cautions The New York Times. Richard Preston takes us inside the ongoing war against bioterrorism, investigating the anthrax attacks of October 2001 and the potential for a future bio-attack using smallpox or, worse yet, a new superpox virus resistant to all vaccines. "As exciting as the best thrillers, yet scarier by far, for Preston's pages deal with clear, present and very real dangers," says Publishers Weekly.

    Story

    This book will keep you up at night.

    This book underscores one of the potentially world-altering scenarios - biological warfare. Along the lines of Charlie Wilson's War - this is a situation where earth shaking events have occurred, but few people realize or understand. It highlights that there really are bad people out there. Those without scruples that would do harm to everyone and anyone to further their cause.

    As a scientist, I found the book to be informative and technically precise. The author did a good job with proper pronunciation of technical terms. I appreciate the fact that the author seems to have gone to some length not to divulge too much information about the security practices that the US has in place to secure the exotic viruses it has for research purposes.

    This contrasts with some other books that almost give a blueprint of how to get in where you shouldn't and the types of security measures that are in place.

    There are times the story becomes less than smooth - especially some of the transitions between topics. There are a few editing issues, where a sentence or two is repeated, especially around the chapter markings.

    Overall, a very worthy read.

    Story

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Ethan M. says: "Thwarts Every Expectation - In a Good Way"
    "My favorite of the series thus far"

    Story

    Of the 300+ titles I've purchased from Audible (42 this year), this is the best book I've read - ever. There are few books that I listen to more than once. I listened to this one twice in a row. Butcher kicked it up a notch this time around, with a deeper story line that resolves many questions (some of which were initiated eleven books ago), and begins many more questions. The plot is epic in scope, in accordance with Harry's new role as Winter Knight. It was fantastic that James Marsters returned for the audio performance. His voice is like your favorite pair of jeans - it just feels right.
