Beijing Red kept me interested if barely so. The Nick Foley (and Dash) series has potential, but it was not fully realized in this novel. Oh, its good novel but it could be better.
The novel is set in western China where ex-Navy Seal Nick Foley is working for an NGO that is seeking to help improve the lives poor Uyghurs. An outbreak of a 100% fatal "disease" occurs and is likely a terrorist act. The actual nature of the "disease" is what leads me to classify the novel as contemporary science fiction.
There is lots of action and suspense in Beijing Red. Actor McLeod Andrews does a fine job of narration.

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
