BOOK EXCERPT:

Imagine a killer with the infectiousness of the common cold and power of the Black Death. Imagine something so deadly that it wipes out 90% of those it touches. Imagine an organism against which there is no defence. But you don't need to imagine. Such a killer exists: it is a virus and its name is Ebola. The Hot Zone tells what happens when the unthinkable becomes reality: when a deadly virus, from the rain forests of Africa, crosses continents and infects a monkey house ten miles from the White House. Ebola is that reality. It has the power to decimate the world's population. Try not to panic. It will be back. There is nothing you can do...

BOOK EXCERPT:

Inside the Hot Zone is an insider’s account of one of the most dangerous workplaces on earth: the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in Fort Detrick, Maryland. Retired U.S. Army Col. Mark G. Kortepeter, a leading biodefense expert, recounts his journey from the lecture hall to the role of department chief, to the battlefield, to the Biosafety Level-4 maximum containment lab, and finally, to the corner office. During Kortepeter’s seven and a half years in leadership at USAMRIID, the United States experienced some of the most serious threats in modern germ warfare, including the specter of biological weapons during the Iraq War, the anthrax letters sent after 9/11, and a little-known crisis involving a presumed botulism attack on the president of the United States. Inside the Hot Zone is a shocking, frightening eye-opener as Kortepeter describes in gripping detail how he and his USAMRIID colleagues navigated threats related to anthrax, botulism, smallpox, Lassa, and Ebola. Kortepeter crafts a rich and riveting narrative as he wrestles with life-and-death decisions managing biological weapon exposures. The stories are real, but they could just as easily serve as plotlines in popular fiction or Hollywood thrillers. He gives the reader a seat at the table as each crisis unfolds, with an unvarnished and personal perspective on the dangers, the drama, the fear, the frustrations, the irony, and the uncertainty he encountered as a physician in the role of “Biodefender.”

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book provides a detailed description of the evidence-collection protocols that will be required in criminal cases that involve the release of a chemical agent, biological agent, or radiological material. A chapter on the crime scene profiles procedures for what to do first upon arriving at the scene, procedures for entering the "hot zone, " and procedures upon leaving the "hot zone." Another chapter focuses on procedures for locating evidence sample points. Information is provided on general detection instruments, chemical agent detectors, biological agent detection equipment, and equipment for detecting radiological material. A chapter on chemical evidence collection contains descriptions and discussions of equipment preparation, chemical liquids, chemical vapors and aerosols, chemical agent solid sampling, chemical surface sampling, and chemical dermal sampling. This chapter advises that the purpose in collecting evidence in a hazardous chemical incident is to collect a representative sample of the material in question and determine the physical and chemical characteristics of the evidence. This can only be achieved through a well-planned and well-executed collection protocol. The chapter on biological evidence collection considers equipment preparation; biological liquids and aerosols; and biological agent solid, surface, and dermal sampling. The chapter on radiological evidence collection identifies the sources of radiological material; the characteristics of radiological evidence; and procedures for radiological liquid, airborne, solids, surface, and dermal evidence collection. Extensive photographic illustrations, tables, 32 notes, a glossary, subject index, and appended supplementary information on hazardous materials
