Typhoid fever is running rampant across America, striking down tens of thousands of people. Dr. George Soper must get to the root of the problem fast. He knows that it takes just one person carrying the bacteria for the fever to spread. When Soper traces an outbreak to Mary Mallon, a New York City cook, he is determined to prevent her from infecting others. But Mallon refuses to cooperate.

In a gripping narrative, award-winning author Gail Jarrow follows Soper and the health department as they track Mallon on the deadly trail of infection. Can she be stopped? Will this fatal fever come to an end? Jarrow's medical thriller relies on courtroom documents, newspaper accounts, and the writings of all the key players, including those of the notorious Typhoid Mary.
