Written By: Richard Preston

Narrated By: Howard McGillin

Date: October 1994

Duration: 3 hours 6 minutes


The virus kills nine out of ten of its victims. Its effects are so quick and so gruesome that even biohazard experts are terrified. It is airborne, it is extremely contagious, and it is about to burn through the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Is there any way to stop it?

This doomsday scenario confronted a biohazard SWAT team struggling in secret to stop the outbreak of an exotic 'hot' virus at an Army research facility outside Washington. The Hot Zone tells the dramatic story of their dangerous race against time, along with an alarming account of how previously unknown viruses that have lived undetected in the rain forest for eons are now entering human populations.

From the airlocked confines of a biosafety level 4 military lab, to an airliner over Kenya carrying a passenger dissolving into a human virus bomb, to a deserted jungle cave alive with deadly virus, THE HOT ZONE is a non-fiction thriller like no other. The Andromeda Strain was fiction

this is real!

    Good engaging book. A lot of people believe a lot of the stuff in this book to be absolutely true but just remember, it's based on a true story. Still pretty scary stuff.

    Very interesting book! Can relate to it now with the Coronavirus everywhere in the matter of a week!

    It was an amazing book, great narrator. The only thing I hate is that they don’t tell you what page you’re on.
