Year 15, Book 21

21. The Red Lotus by Chris Bohjalian

An ER doctor and her boyfriend travel to Vietnam on a bicycle tour, but when he fails to return from a solo ride he insisted on taking she begins to uncover that he might have taken them to Vietnam on false pretenses and sets out to find out what really happened to him and why he lied. This was a very interesting book to read in the time of coronavirus since it’s about the attempt to create a new version of the plague to use as a bioweapon. I’m not sure I loved the end of the book, but I really enjoyed reading it along the way. I give it a 7 out of 10.
