Review by TheoClarke
Well-paced thriller about London flooding when the Thames Barrier is damaged. Ryan laces the tale with survival tips and two interwoven plots about a thirteen-year-old trying to find his mother while two escaped terrorists attempt to meet at the same destination.
Review by potterwholockian
Ok, this was an okay book but the reasons I did not like it was<br/>a) I felt the character didn't have much depth<br/>b) other than CODE RED it didn't really seem to have a plot<br/>c) It didn't have what I wanted in this book.<br/><br/>Of course I will read the rest of the series but I felt it should have been more intense, dramatic, panic. I felt it was more panic but then also relaxed and *It's okay we will be saved*<br/><br/>Though it was a quick and enjoyable read.<br/>I would be glad to read the rest.
