The most frightening book I had ever read. 

What's the summary? That the Ebola threat is very real?

It is.  Also, they were unsure where the dark reservoirs of the virus live when it's not infecting humans.  I think they know a little better now.  It's bat meat related to chimpanzees.  Dallas has a huge bat population, so it's not just the human population we should be worried about. 

What is "bat meat"?
