Publisher's Summary

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 mad man before he unleashes the world's next super-weapon in Beijing.

When in China, being treated like a terrorist, hey buddy can I use your phone?

What would you do? One min. You are digging a ditch by hand in remote China, a worker you befriended falls out looking to be the victim of a grotesque death like Ebola... So you rush him to medical aid.
In a previous time you were the medic for a Navy Seal team, and you make some observations about your coworker.
Now you find your self detained and quarantined without your clothes, passport, phone. And people are asking you questions and treating you like a terrorist.
And there you have chapter 1. Are you tired yet?
So there you have it that's how the book begins, and it maintains a very god pace all the way to the end.
The book includes, humor,flirtatious behavior, blood, guts, and plenty of gore.
The book also contains many memories the main characters had while they grew up, and these memories influence their actions today
I know I really enjoyed this story, the reader, and what I hope to be a very good series of books

I could not stop listening

What made the experience of listening to Beijing Red the most enjoyable?

The story keeps moving and keeps you engaged the entire time. I will not go into the story line as the synopsis does that. I will tell you that the characters and relationships between the characters are well developed and interesting. You can tell that Andrews and Wilson did their homework. The science and medical aspects are fascinating and make you think about where we are headed in the future.


What did you like best about this story?

The story kept me engaged the entire time. I usually get bored and stall while listening to audio books, not with this book. I found myself staying up late at night to listen to Beijing Red and driving around the block to get to listen longer. I plan to listen to it a second time to pick up on the nuances that I may have missed.


What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

MacLeod's voices were spot on. For the male and female characters his voice made it easy to envision the different genders. The accents were realistic, MacLeod is unbelievable. He has a voice that is very pleasant to listen to and does not distract from the story.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

My movie tag line would be "The best movie of 2017! You will be transported to Beijing and transfixed the entire movie."


Any additional comments?

I would love to see additional books in the Nick Foley series. For now, I can't wait to listen to Tier One by Andrews and Wilson.
