Audible Editor Reviews

Alpha Trivette gives an authoritative performance of Leonard A. Cole’s exhaustive narrative of the 2001 Anthrax attacks in the United States. His steady voice relays the catastrophic events that unfolded when a bio-terrorist mailed letters containing Anthrax spores, causing five deaths and nationwide terror. This minute-by-minute account draws on interviews Coles conducted with all the surviving victims, public health officials, scientists, hospital workers, and physicians connected to the incident. It also includes an update about the late Bruce E. Ivins, the microbiologist who was the prime suspect in the case.

Publisher's Summary

At 2:00 a.m. on October 2, 2001, Robert Stevens entered a hospital emergency room. Feverish, nauseated, and barely conscious, no one knew what was making him sick. Three days later he was dead. Stevens was the first fatal victim of bioterrorism in America.

Bioterrorism expert Leonard Cole has written the definitive account of the Anthrax attacks. Cole is the only person outside law enforcement to have interviewed every one of the surviving inhalation-anthrax victims, along with the relatives, friends, and associates of those who died, as well as the public health officials, scientists, researchers, hospital workers, and treating physicians.

Fast paced and riveting, this minute-by-minute chronicle of the anthrax attacks recounts more than a history of recent current events, it uncovers the untold and perhaps even more important story of how scientists, doctors, and researchers perform life-saving work under intense pressure and public scrutiny.

Updated with new information about Ivins and a series of upcoming Congressional hearings into the FBI’s conduct in this case, The Anthrax Letters amply demonstrates how vulnerable America was in 2001 and whether we are better prepared now for a bioterror attack.

    "Phoning it in"

    The story and science is pretty fascinating and takes you on a bit of a ride. However, after four or five chapters the narrator clearly starts just reading words, with a staccato 'not thinking about what he's reading' sound, and the performance becomes quite difficult to listen to. Almost made me stop listening.
