This title in the very popular Danger Zone series explores the life and times of Typhoid Mary. Read about her early beginnings as a young girl travelling alone from Ireland to New York, her time on an island in a hospital being used to test all kinds of drugs, and how she passed typhoid fever from one person to another. You'll learn both sides of the story and have to decide, was Mary wicked or just careless?
This is Book 14 in the The Danger Zone Series. See all The Danger Zone books here.
