9780316218955: Parasite

A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.
We owe our good health to a humble parasite -- a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the Intestinal Bodyguard worm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system -- even secretes designer drugs. It's been successful beyond the scientists' wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.
But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives . . . and will do anything to get them.

Review:

The Big Fall Books Preview 2013: Sally--an amnesiac and the poster-girl for the corporation that saved her life--wants answers. It’s 2027, a near-future that is frighteningly like our present, and a corporate-owned treatment has rendered illness obsolete... until "sleeping sickness" hits, growing to epidemic proportions. What once kept everyone safe turns out to be beyond deadly. We see events unfold as Sally does, and her frustration becomes our own. Who can she trust? Can we even trust her? The first book of this ominous duology blends sci-fi imagination with the terrifying authenticity of horror then delivers like a creeping thriller, getting under your skin in a very good way. --Robin A. Rothman
