The Hot Zone
I started reading this book by Richard Preston last night. It is a bit disturbing with very vivid detail, but that's part of the thrill. We like to think we don't like sex scenes, murder scenes, terrifying disease scenes... but we all do and we all know it deep down. This book has some horrible death scenes, intensely describing the progression of a lethal disease. It is riveting medical thriller that will chill you to the bone. The fact that it is a true story makes it all the more frightening and is turning me into a severe hypochondriac.
