Where can you hide if you're running from yourself?

In bunkers and strongholds across the world, people are celebrating. There's a vaccine to the virus that has ravaged the planet for years.

But the celebrations won't last for long.

The vaccine isn't working. The virus is evolving. Catarina - genehacker, reluctant warrior - must find the one person who can help her. A man who is guilty of unimaginable crimes.

Time is ticking, she only has three days before shadowy gentech corporation Cartaxus will use lethal code to wipe out every person on the planet's surface.

Kill the hosts, kill the virus.

Forced to question everything she knows and everyone she trusts, Cat discovers that the biggest threat of all may be buried in her own mind.

The end of the world is approaching. Can she stop it?

About the author

Emily Suvada was born in Australia, where she went on to study mathematics and astrophysics. Her interest in science and tech never waned, particularly in genetic engineering and the question of what it means to be human. Emily's deepest passion has always been books, and though she always loved to write, she didn't truly find her voice until she combined this passion with her love of science. This Mortal Coil is Emily's first novel, and was crafted as the kind of book she loves most - fast-paced action with a healthy dose of futuristic technology and a horrifying virus. She now lives in the USA, in Portland, Oregon, with her husband. When not writing, she can be found hiking, cycling, and conducting chemistry experiments in her kitchen.
