The scientist Erica Stroud-Jones is missing. She disappears just hours before she will present her secret work to a conference in Amsterdam; research that could finally revolutionize the battle against a deadly tropical disease. But now she is gone and her boyfriend Max Carver must do everything in his power to find her. But that are people out there who would do anything to stop him. And, then people start getting sick, but it seems that someone is behind this new illness… This book was wonderfully captivating, a real page-turner. There are three different narratives in this book; Ericas diary from her time in Africa, Max Carvers searching for Erica and the doctors who discover the illness and all three of the narratives work perfectly together until the end. This is my kind of book a thriller that until the last page is thrilling to read and that manage to deliver some surprises. I admit that towards the ending I found that I had some problem fully take in the story, but I think it had more to do with me being tired than the book. Also, in this book not everything is black and white, sure there is some evil people, especially one really nasty person, but I felt that the man behind the all, I could understand him. I could understand how he came to do the things he did and that is not always so when it comes to thriller. Often is it money or power, but in this case, not everything had to do with money, well in a way it did, as it was a mans greed that started everything. What really got to me in the end was the ending of the book when everything that had happened in the book in the present got explained and it was so perfect! It was just a perfect closing for the book, the explanation how one thing led to another thing.
