When ex-Navy SEAL Nick Foley travels to China to find purpose and escape the demons of his past, he instead stumbles into a conspiracy his Special Forces training never prepared him for. A mysterious and deadly outbreak ravages a remote area of western China, and Nick finds himself the lead suspect in a bioterrorism investigation being conducted by China’s elite Snow Leopard counter-terrorism unit.
To clear his name and avoid prosecution, he must team up with beautiful Chinese CDC microbiologist Dr. Dazhong “Dash” Chen to find who is really behind the attack. As their investigation proceeds, their budding friendship is tested by nationalistic loyalties and suspicion.
In a race against time, Nick and Dash must risk everything to stop a madman before he unleashes the world’s next super-weapon in Beijing.
Rating: 5 stars
Beijing Red by Alex Ryan is a reminder of one of my most favorite movies…the Bourne Series. It’s intense, fast-paced, and absolutely a riveting read. There’s enough excitement that kept my heart racing, my palms sweating, and the fear of another deadly disaster. Alex Ryan is indeed a superb writer whose words swept over me and washed me deep into this stunning one of a kind adventure. With the way our world’s technology and other foreign countries bio-technologies increase at an alarming rate…the fear of this realistic doom kept me awake all night long. Absolutely the most compelling read I have read in awhile.
Alex Ryan has masterfully created a plot that can one day actually happen to us if not already happening. The frightening realization is terrifying. I couldn’t put this novel down until I read it all. Inside Beijing Red, readers like myself will have met an ex-Navy Seal who like Matt Damon that played the leading role in Bourne Series…is found in a rather difficult situation where he is being hunted down for a rime he didn’t commit. A government conspiracy that leads Nick and China’s microbiologist, Dash, to figure it all out before the true criminal behind it all lets loose another deadly nightmare. A race against time, countries, and the government both Nick and Dash will have to use every source of power they have to defeat whoever is behind the bioterrorism. Readers like myself will get to travel to China and explore one of the most dangerous plots that exist…Beijing Red. Overall, I found this read to be thrilling, and I highly recommend it to readers worldwide.
