Summary: The commander of the army virology unit that battled Ebola in The Hot Zone -- and Chief of Special Pathogens at the Centers for Disease Control -- teams up with the bestselling coauthor of MindHunter to chronicle his extraordinary thirty-year career fighting deadly viruses. C. J. Peters has been on the front lines of our biological war against "hot" viruses for three decades in South America, the United States, and Africa. In Virus Hunter, he recounts his lifelong battle against these deadly, invisible agents -- and offers astonishing insight into the inevitable clash between biology -- infectious deseases that reside in nature -- and human lives.With the threat of new emerging viruses that could one day pose a threat to our species, and the possibility of terrorists one day resorting to deadly biological agents, it is more important than ever that we listen to Dr. Peters's dispatches from the front. High-octane science writing at its most revealing and best, Virus Hunter is a thrilling first-person account of what it is like to be a warrior in the Hot Zone.
