Publisher's Summary

In this brilliant and gripping medical detective story, Richard Rhodes follows virus hunters on three continents as they track the emergence of a deadly new brain disease that first kills cannibals in New Guinea, then cattle and young people in Britain and France - and that has already been traced to food animals in the United States. In a new afterword, Rhodes reports the latest U.S. and worldwide developments of a burgeoning global threat.
