Reviews for Bitten

“In this riveting narrative, journalist Kris Newby reveals the backstory behind the bioweaponization of ticks during the Cold War. Her truly frightening report demands we take another look at the hidden complexity of Lyme disease and answer the question: What, exactly, is in those ticks?” Pam Weintraub | Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Epidemic

“Newby’s book raises important questions that deserve answers. Chief among them: precisely what was done to weaponize Lyme disease—and why won’t the government come clean about it?” Dorothy Leland |

“Full of fascinating and sometimes-disturbing information, little of which is widely known.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“It’s a creepy, skin-crawling theory that seems to belong in a Stephen King novel.” Booklist
