Beijing RedBook 1 of the Nick Foley Thriller series
“A bio-terrorist attack unleashes a mysterious disease that ravages western China in this high-octane thrill ride “for fans of special-ops and contagion-driven thrillers”
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 bio-terrorism 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.

“Fast paced and total page turner! Perfect book for those who love thrillers, bio-terrorism, and espionage. Easy read but full of interesting tidbits and facts thrown in during the action. I finished it in 48 hours as I couldn’t wait to finish and find out what happened. The China angle is refreshing and new compared compared to most of the books in this genre that I read.”
“A masterful mix of Tom Clancy and the great Vince Flynn with just enough Brad Thor sprinkled in for good measure. This is high stakes, high action at its level best and an absolute must for all thriller fans.”
