Alex McKay witnesses a biological accident at a secret lab, that threatens to cause disease to spread by mosquitoes, leaving death in its path. She is sent to South America on a false trip and disappears there, ending up in a squalid and terrifying prison with a sentence of ten years for drug smuggling.

I almost quit reading here. An implausible story, but I kept going to see if the book would improve. It didn't. Had quite a plot but the main problem is the writing. The book needs another editing or two. Too many typos and lost words for a finished book. I found it hard to keep my interest because at least another rewrite or two is really needed. I could never once put myself in the story. There's very little background to the scenes to be able to imagine the happenings.

There is plenty of action but it seems disjointed, with not enough descriptive words to really get into the events.
