Description


Virus Thirteen is an irreverent and contagious thriller from debut author Joshua Alan Parry.

Scientists James Logan and his wife, Linda, have their dream careers at the world's leading biotech company, GeneFirm, Inc. But their happiness is interrupted by a devastating bioterrorist attack: a deadly superflu that quickly becomes a global pandemic. The GeneFirm complex goes into lockdown and Linda's research team is sent to high-security underground labs to develop a vaccine.

Above ground, James learns that GeneFirm security has been breached and Linda is in danger. To save her he must confront a desperate terrorist, armed government agents, and an invisible killer: Virus Thirteen.

Praise For…


“A thriller with attitude! Parry's plausible near-future science makes a fascinating--and terrifying--premise. Virus Thirteen is an entertaining and well-crafted novel from a bold new talent.” —Vince Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Kill Shot

“The stakes are cataclysmic and the science highly credible in Parry's exciting debut novel. Not only is Virus Thirteen a cautionary tale for a world where genetics are put before ethics, but it's also a joyride of a thriller.” —Daniel Kalla, international bestselling author of Pandemic
