Publisher's Summary

In this dramatic and shocking account, Rodney Barker tells the full and terrifying story of a microorganism propping up along the Eastern seaboard -- far closer to home than the Ebola virus and equally frightening.
In the coastal waters of North Carolina -- and now extending as far north as the Chesapeake Bay area -- a mysterious and deadly aquatic organism named Pfiestaria piscicida (scientists call it "the cell from hell") threatens to unleash an environmental nightmare and human tragedy of catastrophic proportions.
At the very center of this narrative is the heroic effort of Dr. JoAnn Burkholder and her colleagues, embattled and dedicated scientists confronting medical, political, and corporate powers to understand and conquer this new scourge before it claims more victims. And the Waters Turned to Blood is a clear-eyed, frightening, and dramatic scientific adventure, far more exciting and disturbing than any fiction could be.
