♥ Ashleigh ♥  contrary to popular belief im not actually mad!
Must say I'm surprised by how much i truly enjoyed this book. There where a few eye rolling coincidence moments towards the end but over all what a remarkable story about strong willed and incredible individuals!
I still think it seems a little egotistical for Chris Ryan to have his name in such ginormous print on all his books - other much more famous writers seem to do well enough without resorting to this type of thing, But for now I'll try not to pass judgement and just sit confused pondering

It was an amazing book. I read it in 2 days becasue i could not put it down
Best Code Red so far. Simple.
Fantastic read! The book kept me entertained and at the same time it touched a very serious topic of such scary virus as Ebola. The description of African jungles and animals that live in it was amazing.
didn't really like the series.
This was a great read!
Scientist and his son visit the Congo to investigate a new mine and end up stuck in a village where a deadly Ebola-like virus has been unleashed. Told from the son's perspective this was an exciting listen. His father contracts the virus so young Ben has to fight the unscrupulous mine owners who are hell bent on making money, regardless of the horrific risk. Not read Chris Ryan before, but may see what else he has written now.
It's kind of interesting at some parts but I just couldn't get into the book any quicker.
Very intense story . However , very disappointing at some parts as it is boring.
An exciting pageturner!
