About the book: 

A devastating meningitis outbreak is sweeping nationwide at breakneck speed. Although not blamed, brain surgeon Dr. Danny Tilson’s recent surgeries happened just before his hospital patients and staff acquired the frightening malady.

Danny becomes the pivotal player of an investigation when the CDC, a neurologist, and an infectious disease specialist are summoned for their expertise.  The root of the outbreak is an enigma, the sinister organism is a mystery, and the timeline of its victims is complicated.

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?


Bill shook his head as he slid further back in his chair. The meeting seemed to be taking a toll on him. “She has flu-like symptoms,” he said, “complained less of a headache although she does have one. And she’s developed a fever, which is getting higher despite an antipyretic. Nothing so far has shown up abnormal on her blood work.”

“I’ll get to her after Dr. Talbot,” Tim said. “Each of these patients needs infectious disease precautions. Let’s isolate them.”

Danny rapped his knuckles on the table with a sudden thought. “Either of you have a problem if I call in Dr. Joelle Lewis?”

Tim moved his cane to the side and got up. He stepped to the right and left, unkinking his cramps. “I’ve never worked with her, but I’ve heard of her. By all means, give her a call.”

“I think we have ample concern,” Bill added, “that it’s also time to call in the CDC.”

Danny had made notes. He double checked their plan and who was going to do what. He tensed his lips, searched his colleagues faces. “I’m going to see how busy the OR is with after hour emergencies.”

Tim paused stretching and looked as quizzical as Bill. “What do you have in mind, Danny?”

“We can’t wait for Harold’s cerebrospinal fluid to possibly grow something out on a Petri dish in the lab. I need to do a brain biopsy on my colleague.”

  1. Good morning and thanks for hosting me. Are there any dog lovers stopping by today?

  2. Yes, I have two dogs. One is a rescue and the other a cute Maltese. I enjoyed learning about the novel and your background as an anesthesiologist since they are so important and give us life. This book sounds memorable and captivating. best wishes. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  3. Hi Traveler! I'm happy to hear you have two and one is a rescue. I have three dogs and two were strays. My Chessie, Chester, is in my Dr. Danny novels, but I've renamed him "Dakota." (Some of his scenes are true)!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I love dogs but don't have any. We live in a small condo on the beach and there just isn't room.
