Coils Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Coils

A man Donald BelPatri lives in the Florida Keys, with his girlfriend Cora. All he knows is that he get major income wired to his bank account and that he has an odd ability to communicate with computers. When he goes with Cora to see his family, the town he remembers isn't there. When Cora goes missing, Don goes looking for her... and finds an energy company called Angra who is holding her hostage who he used to work for before he quit. They want him back because of his ability to control anything plugged into a computer anywhere with his mind, and will stop at nothing to get him. As he rediscovers his memories, he must search for Cora and try to stay alive, for if Angra can't get him to work for them, they'd rather have him dead than revealing their secrets.
