Catching - Episode One: A Global Pandemic Thriller

Could You Abandon Your Wife To Save Millions of Lives?

You're a brilliant but disgraced ex-CDC doctor with a drinking problem.

After one mistake too many your boss fires you. And your wife throws you out. But you give her no choice. You regret what happened every day since. And you still love her, even though she now has your old job at the CDC. And why not? She's respected, diligent - everything you're not.

Months later you stumble across a deadly new Ebola strain in the Himalayas - which makes no sense because Ebola can't survive in at high altitude. But it's there. And it's killing. Eight people are already dead and now the infection is spreading fast.

It spreads to the US.

You try to warn the authorities - contact your old boss at the CDC, your wife, but they won't believe you. You're washed up. A drunk who's cried wolf too many times before.

But you won't give up.

You go back home. Your wife has been sent to a small town in Washington State to investigate some suspicious deaths. You know it's the new Ebola. It's reached the States - your home. And now she's at risk.

Still no-one will listen to you. They don't understand how much danger they're in.

All you can do is go to help your wife. You arrive in the small town nestled under the mountains. It's chaos. The infection is rampant. The small ER where she's working is overrun.

She lets you stay and help - after all you are the world expert on Ebola. But soon you realize you can't do anything useful. You can't stop it. It's too deadly, too virulent. Even then you carry on fighting it, doing your best - until you learn its airborne.

Then you realize you have no chance of stopping this virus. Nor do the CDC team who are on their way. Nor does your ex-wife, however qualified and skilled she is.

There's only one way to stop it.

You must find the host.

He, she or it must be out there somewhere. The index case. The first to be infected. They will have the secret locked in their blood. You can use the host's blood to make an antiserum and wipe out the virus.

And if you don't millions will die.

But your wife can't come. Even though you beg she insists her place is in the ER helping the sick. And you know each second, she stays she risks infection and death. She's at ground zero, surrounded by the dying. You know she'll get infected. You should at least stay with her. Because by abandoning her you are killing her. But if you stay the host will never be found. Hundreds of thousands, maybe millions will die.

You've abandoned her before - and spent every day since regretting it.

Can you do it again to save the world?

Catching is a gripping, fast-paced medical thriller which will engross fans of Michael Crichton, A.G. Riddle and Robin Cook.

Sudden Death - A Medical Mystery Thriller Short Story (Doctor Tess Book 1)


MEDICAL THRILLER SHORT STORY: A mystery medical condition starts killing hospital patients

We meet Tess who is young, single and utterly dedicated to using her medical skills to relieve human suffering. And that was working well enough until one Tuesday night when her ER patients start dying - and so quickly. But why? Tess investigates but her hunt for the truth spirals into unexpected dangers.

A GOOD CLEAN READ. Here's what one 5 star review said of this author: "A factor I found refreshing, particularly in the mystery thriller genre, was the GOOD and CLEAN nature of the book... Those looking for a 'gritty crime drama' won't feel slighted by the lack of foul language and gory details. Similarly, those looking for likable characters with good morals won't be disappointed... Author Pat Wilpenter handles both with aplomb."

Happily this fast-moving medical thriller ends on an upbeat note... and it's not a cliff-hanger. Two extras in the book include an interview with Tess where she talks more about this frightening experience, and we also see the sweet heart of a loving daughter as we read private letters Tess wrote to her mother.

"SUDDEN DEATH" is Book 1 in this thriller series and is a STAND-ALONE mystery of 4200 words (17 pages), followed by an interview with Tess about her frightening experience. We also see the sweet heart of a loving daughter as we read private letters Tess wrote to her mother. These two features help us get to know Tess the person and they bring the book up to around 9,000 words (35 pages).

You can continue to follow Tess's adventures in Book 2, "YOUNG BLOOD" and in Book 3, "HONEYMOON ROADKILL". They are all PG-rated medical thrillers.

If you enjoy medical thriller books and mysteries, it's time you met the lovely Dr. Tess.

The Story Starts...

This Tuesday night would be like no other for 29 year old Dr. Tess Scott.

Tess was in charge of the Emergency Response ward on the ground floor of CityWest Hospital and at 2 in the morning she was taking a short coffee break.

So far, the caseload had been normal. "Well, as normal as it ever gets in ER," she said to herself.

Her mid-shift pickmeup was coffee. Fair Trade coffee. Not so much for its flavor, but for the fact that the profits went to help poor families in the Third World.

This particular Tuesday night, her time-out was cut short when a nurse barged in to the break room without knocking. "We need you in ER, Tess. It's pretty bad. Middle aged male, vomiting, seizures. And he's incoherent."

Tess took one last gulp of the hot brown brew then made her way quickly to the ER entry foyer where the ambulance crew were completing their delivery paper work. They had just wheeled in a middle aged man in work clothes. Tess immediately noticed an "other worldly" pallor to his skin... a hint of blue and gray. He was groaning and writhing in evident pain.
