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

** INCLUDED IN THE DOCTOR TESS BOX SET **

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.

The Final Push (A Short Story)

While on call for the trauma service, third-year medical student Michael Higgins finds himself in an extraordinary situation. He is summoned to the ER to participate in the evaluation and management of a critically-injured patient and soon discovers that the unconscious man lying before him is the same man who, one month earlier, committed a heinous act of violence that shattered Michael's personal life. Following a lengthy emergency operation, the patient--known only as John Doe--is now under the care of the trauma team, of which student doctor Mike Higgins is a member. As John Doe's condition gradually improves, Higgins' personal life deteriorates further, but there might be a way to reverse the downward spiral: if he sees to it that John Doe never leaves the hospital, Michael Higgins' world may right itself.

Welcome To The Madhouse

Doctor Grace Lord, a lieutenant in the Conglomerate Medical Corps, has come to the medical space station, the Nelson Mandela, as the new surgical fellow under the renowned Doctor Hiro Al-Fadi. Though she earned her commission as a combat surgeon in the field, she is unprepared for the scope and pace of what awaits her in the Conglomerate's Premier Medical Space Station. The countless cryopods that come into the Nelson Mandela are filled with the casualties of the Conglomerate's animal-adapted military forces. Traumatically injured and disfigured in campaigns spread across the galaxy, it is up to the staff of the Nelson Mandela to patch up the wounded combat soldiers for redeployment. For Grace, it is a trial by fire, as she familiarizes herself not only with the routines and protocols of life on the Nelson Mandela, but also with the eclectic community of professionals with whom she works - not the least of which is an android that has taken an almost human interest in her. When disaster strikes the space station, the Nelson Mandela must race against time to stave off annihilation, and it becomes clear that, regardless of the outcome, nothing will never be the same again.
