Summary
In the early 1900s, when typhoid fever was killing tens of thousands of Americans each year, Mary Mallon was employed as a cook by several well-to-do New York families. When some members of these households developed the disease, suspicion turned to Mary. Did she have anything to do with the spread of the deadly bacteria? Here is the gripping, true story of Typhoid Mary; the epidemiologist who discovered her trail of infection; and the health department that decided her fate. Fatal Fever will keep readers on the edges of their seats as they wonder what will happen next. Award-winning science and history writer Gail Jarrow brings her expertise to this engrossing medical mystery. Extensive back matter includes a glossary, a timeline, and a list of well-known typhoid sufferers and victims
