Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The first time Alexis saw Austin, it was a Saturday night. Not in a bar, but in the emergency room where Alexis sutured a bullet wound in Austin's arm. Six months later, on the brink of falling in love, they travel to Vietnam on a bike tour so that Austin can show her his passion for cycling and he can pay his respects to the place where his father and uncle fought in the war. But as Alexis sips white wine and waits at the hotel for him to return from his solo ride, two men emerge from the tall grass and Austin vanishes into thin air. The only clues he leaves behind is a bright yellow energy gel dropped on the road. As Alexis grapples with this bewildering loss, and deals with the FBI, Austin's prickly family, and her colleagues at the hospital, Alexis uncovers a series of strange lies that force her to wonder: Where did Austin go? Why did he really bring her to Vietnam? And how much danger has he left her in? Set amid the adrenaline-fueled world of the emergency room, The Red Lotus is a global thriller about those who dedicate their lives to saving people, and those who instead peddle death to the highest bidder."-- Provided by publisher.

    While they're on an ambitious vacation biking through the verdant landscape of Vietnam, Alexis Remnick's boyfriend of six months, Austin Harper, goes missing. On a mission to pay homage to his father and deceased uncle, who both served in the Vietnam War, Austin had embarked on a solo ride to view the spot where his uncle died and his father was wounded. He never returns to their hotel, and Alexis is catapulted into a nightmarish quest to discover why. When his mangled body is recovered, the police initially surmise he was the victim of a hit-and-run, but suddenly the stories he told Alexis about his family's past turn out to be just that, stories, and Alexis' mission broadens to uncover the true identity of the man she thought she loved. In this tightly drawn, steadily hair-raising thriller, Bohjalian (The Flight Attendant, 2018) once again demonstrates his keen affinity for strong, capable female protagonists, while his masterful merging of setting and plot delivers a cerebral and dramatic dive into what happens when love turns to agony.
