There actually is a chief advisor for bio-terror prevention who, with a team of specialists, hypothesize possible attacks and formulate appropriate responses for homeland security. Members of this team also leap into hot zones to deal with outbreaks from natural causes, and a good number of them are former ER doctors. We'll also discuss his writing process and the real life instances that provided many of the seminal events that inspired Peter to write The Darkness Drops. Could the events portrayed in The Darkness Drops come true? Dr. Clement shares scary secrets!
