For two decades, an elite team of Russian bioweaponeers secretly cultivated biological weapons that cause anthrax, smallpox, and Ebola- related fevers. The author, a former leader of Russia's germ warfare effort, provides an insider's account of tests and leaks, lab accidents and deadly disasters, KGB threats, and assassinations. The author joined Biopreparat in 1975 and was deputy chief of the agency from 1988 to 1992. Since he defected to the US in 1992, he has briefed US military intelligence and is now working in biodefense. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
