Two Alums, Two Brothers, Two Books

A novelist specializing in thrillers rents a Tuscan farmhouse unknowingly near the scene of grisly serial killings. A science writer, seeking to understand what it was like for someone to enter a Level 4 Ebola facility and have her spacesuit fail, entered the same facility…and had his spacesuit fail. (That wasn’t part of the plan.)

Truth can be stranger than fiction, and both Richard Preston ’76 and Douglas Preston ‘78 have documented those truths in their most recent nonfiction novels, which were recently released, just two weeks apart.
