The Hot Zone: Any other suggestions?

Ok, so I read The Hot Zone and The Cobra Event both by Richard Preston. I absolutly loved them and im interested in reading more books like them. For those of you who havent read them they are both books about very dangerous diseases. Hot zone is a non-fiction about the birth and effects of the ebola virus. Cobra is a fiction that is hands down the best book ive ever read, and it too is about a deadly disease used as a bio wepon. So, im just lookin to find books on the subject dealing with deadly diseases and bio terrorism.

I forget the name of it, but it's about small pox. I believe it's non-fiction, but I could be wrong. I'll look it up and edit this post. From what I've heard, everyone who's read it has loved it.

There's also The Andromeda Strain. It's a fiction book about a disease that comes to Earth on a comet and they need to figure out how to cure it. It's really cool.

I read a book called Mount Dragon by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Worked for me as far as deadly diseases and bio-weapon manufacturing went. Cool story, too.

EDIT: Just found out that Douglas Preston is Richard Preston's brother. Weird.

Oh i thought Demon in the Freezer was antrax, oh well. I'll probably rend that one and The Andromeda Strain.

And thanks for the books so far, ive already the two books by Richard Preston and i do really like his style, but im kinda looking to branch out and read from some other authors.
