Christine Lakin is the principal narrator of Strathdee’s story of her terrifying and frantic mission to save her husband, psychologist Thomas Patterson, from the deadly and multidrug-resistant superbug A. BAUMANNII. Lakin sweeps listeners into an account as terrifying as it is enthralling. When every approved treatment fails, Strathdee looks for any alternatives, finding a possibility in phage therapy, dismissed a century ago by clinicians. Lakin’s portrayal of Strathdee’s hunt presents true desperation, while passages on the history of antibiotics and the mounting difficulties faced by contemporary medicine ring with authority. Her husband’s side is not forgotten; interludes by Dan Woren give listeners Patterson’s perspective on fighting one of nature’s most lethal bacteria.
