Praise for Virus Thirteen

“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
