In the postwar decades, while the United States and Britain were heavily invested in biological weapons development, major animal experiments, many on nonhuman primates, were conducted, both in closed chambers and in open-air settings in the Caribbean and the Pacific. Government experts could have discussed with him what to look for in the thoracic lymph nodes and in the interior of the lung. Even so, no Western expert at that time could have laid out infallible criteria for distinguishing inhalation from intestinal anthrax.

Burgasov invites us to visit him at his dacha once we have finished our work in Yekaterinburg. Then, when Matthew asks his permission to photocopy the 1979 veterinarian documents, Burgasov not only agrees but says that we can have the originals, to help in our research on the animal outbreak. ” The words are hardly out of his mouth when Walker (who has left the young Dr. Nikiforov across the hall) enters the conference room to announce authoritatively that he is certain he has seen two, possibly three, instances of inhalation anthrax in the slides.
