THE DEMON UNDER THE MICROSCOPE From Battlefield Hospitals to Nazis Labs, One Doctor's Heroic Search for the World's First Miracle Drug

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

History • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Stephen Hoye has narrated his share of mysteries and thrillers, but the serial killer he describes in this well-researched nonfiction story is one of the most diabolical of all--the microscopic streptococcus bacteria, the indiscriminate executioner of millions of people. This story of the hunt for a synthetic antibiotic to combat this organism is packed with odd bits of trivia--for example, Hitler disliked animal testing--and heroic tales of colorful characters who doggedly pursued their quarry. Produced and read with the pacing of a suspense story, the 11 discs of this medical mystery are over before you can say, "Eureka!" R.W.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
