After brain surgeon Dr. Danny Tilson performs several intracranial surgeries, patients and staff acquire a strange meningitis which sweeps nationwide at breakneck speed. The root of the outbreak is an enigma and the CDC, a neurologist, and an infectious disease specialist are called in for their expertise.
Hang on for the ride as Dr. Danny straightens out his personal life while confronted with an epidemic of frightening proportions and consequences. The pandemic of the millennium has no cure in sight. And while Danny’s colleagues, patients and staff are falling dead around him, perhaps the most crucial question of all is – why has Danny been spared?
Silent Fear is a stand-alone novel as well as being Book Two of The Dr. Danny Tilson Novels. And ringing true as the credible medical fiction writer, Doctor Barbara’s basic and scary organism in Silent Fear’s plot actually exists!
“Silent Fear is billed as a medical mystery and holds an important characteristic separating it from many competitors in the genre: its author is a physician herself, so the medical facts, setting and background are not only believable but are solidly grounded in reality. … Even seasoned medical thriller readers won’t know exactly where the plot is heading. (Silent Fear is) medical mystery or thriller writing at its best -but its also about life-changing actions, responsibilities, family ties, romance, and survival. All these elements combine in a hard-hitting, realistic story sure to attract a wide audience.” D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
