At 2:00 A.M. on October 2, 2001, Robert Stevens entered a hospital emergency room?feverish, nauseated, and barely conscious. Three days later he was dead. Stevens was the first fatal victim of bioterrorism in America. Bioterrorism expert Leonard Cole has written the definitive account of the 2001 Anthrax attacks that gripped the country in the wake of 9/11. Cole is the only person outside law enforcement to have inter-viewed every one of the surviving inhalation-anthrax victims, along with the relatives, friends, and associates of those who died, as well as the public health officials, scientists, researchers, hospital workers, and treating physicians. Fast-paced and riveting, this minute-by-minute chronicle of the anthrax attacks uncovers the untold and perhaps even more important story of how scientists, doctors, and researchers perform life-saving work under intense pressure and public scrutiny. With a new introduction and an expanded conclusion on the naming of a final suspect in August 2008, his subsequent suicide, and lingering doubts as to whether the actual Anthrax Mailer is still at large, The Anthrax Letters is a gripping account of the largest bioterrorist attack in America and a necessary primer to prepare for the next one.
