♥ 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!

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.

I can't believe it's the same author as Geordie Sharps writer.

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.
