Exiled to the mines of Mars…
Silvariah Frandelle, a brilliant and beautiful business woman, falls from wealth and success into exile and poverty, indentured—barely one step above slavery—as an off-world laborer to escape prison.
Her last calculated risk as a free woman, paid for with years of service, becomes the key to surviving hostile environments. Space, gravity, and Mars wastelands were expected. Intrusive AIs, obscure experiments and shadowy foes were not.
Escaping with her life will require more than intuition, wits or nerve, as the intrigue unravels from both ends, and she’s forced to decide who to believe, and who to trust.
“Body Suit” explores the development of personality and the shaping of character—human or otherwise—external pressures, competing ideals, and battles for control. A well-paced drama that builds tension to the last page and concludes with a harrowing climax.
Suzanne Hagelin acquired her love of adventure and story-telling from reading, travel, and living overseas. She currently resides in the Seattle area where she writes, edits, and teaches private lessons in world languages.
