Descrizione

Maneater is a personal account by a specialist who approaches her work like a forensic scientist or a case-hardened private eye. Dr. Pamela Nagami is a leading authority on infectious diseases and her stories will shock, amaze, and warn readers.

The patients in Maneater are ordinary Americans. When Danielle Jordan innocently ordered a salad for lunch in Puerta Vallarta she had no idea she had just become the "host" to an organism that six years later would grow into a worm and burrow into her brain.

Charlie Blair caught chicken pox, but he wasn't a kid, he was an adult, and that common childhood disease can attack a man and ravage his body until he looks like a third-degree-burn victim.

A small insect bite on Allan Roth's right foot made him a target for "flesh-eating strep." He shed his skin like a snake and a large area of tissue and skin was removed from his right thigh and lower abdomen.

Maneater will take readers on rounds with Dr. Nagami, where they will learn, from a safe distance, what the diseases are, what it's like to be a medical detective, and how it feels to make the medical and ethical decisions that can mean the difference between life and death.

A Macmillan Audio production.

    Brilliant...but scary too! The patients are the real life actors in this book. The stoicism, the strength, the heroic qualities shine within the patients. Then the Gillian's, duseases. But the narrative comes through within the Dictor. A must read!

    I always find stories about situations dealing with health interesting. I learned a lot from this audio book When I also enjoyed the narrator.
