Praise for Catch Your Death:

“An exhilarating ride with plenty to satisfy even the most demanding conspiracy theorists – in a similar vein to Michael Crichton and Dan Brown, and then some! I found myself rushing through the last few chapters as the pace increased and every moment was full of tension. Brilliant stuff.”
-Elizabeth Haynes, bestselling author of Into the Darkest Corner

“A fast-paced conspiracy thriller that stays suspenseful and unsettling to the very last page.”
-Emlyn Rees, bestselling author of Hunted

“A high octane, action-packed thriller…There is so much action and intrigue in this book and every scene is driven by a powerful emotion, such as lust, love or savage hatred.”
-First Choice

“A fast-paced rollercoaster thriller – MEGA Book of the Month!”

Product Description

The No.1 bestseller from the writers of KILLING CUPID and THE MAGPIES.

A terrifying enigma - with the power to destroy...

Twenty years ago, Kate Maddox was a volunteer at a research centre where scientists hunted for a cure for the common cold virus. That summer, Kate fell in love with a handsome young doctor, Stephen, but her stay ended in his tragic death and Kate fled to a new life in the US.

Now Kate is back in England and on the run with her young son, this time from her vile husband. But a chance encounter sets her on a terrifying path of discovery. What really happened at the Cold Research Unit two decades ago?

Pursued by both her estranged husband and a psychotic killer who is obsessed with his prey, Kate must fight to solve the puzzle of the past - uncovering a sickening betrayal and a truth more horrifying than she could ever have imagined...

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced and a gripping read 19 Jun 2011
By poppy74
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose this book based on other reviews. The story had me gripped right from the first page, and doesn't let up until the last page. I read it from start to finish in less than 24 hours.

It's one of those books that gives you a knot in your stomach, and you feel that you're right there with Kate and Paul, racing to find the answers to what had happened at the Cold Research Centre many years before, and having to keep one step ahead of the 'baddies' at the same time.

I felt it had a satisfying ending, and the only reason I have given this book 4 stars instead of 5 is that in some parts it is ever so slightly contrived, but it's only a minor niggle and is still a thoroughly enjoyable rollercoaster ride of a story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Tense and Compelling Thriller 17 May 2011
By debbie8355 TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I literally couldn't put this e-book down. There's a steam train of a plot with two brilliant central characters, Kate and Paul, on the hunt for the truth but simultaneously being chased by an outstanding monster of a villian who is utterly terrifying. When he rings your doorbell you'd better hide as it's impossible to tell which twisted direction he'll take. Intrigue and twists come thick and fast. I thought I could see what was coming next but I was wrong at every turn.
The story is original and believable and ratchets up the tension as Kate's son becomes a pawn in the game.
There's a history and depth to the story linking back to 1990 when student Kate was a guinea pig in UK common cold research. Returning to the UK from Boston, 15 years later she comes to discover not all was as it seemed and the fire which destroyed the research unit and landed her in hospital was far more sinister than she could ever imagine. Kate's family dynamics are also wonderfully complicated with her growing attraction for the brother of her first love and her outraged new ex from the US chasing her across the UK for custody of her son as he realises Kate never intended to return.
Very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Candy-floss Entertainment 23 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Right - first and foremost, this book is definately worth a read. It's under £1 and there is no question that the story line is pretty gripping. I read this in the space of a couple of days and didn't once come to a point where my interest waned.

That said, there does seem to be a bit of substance missing from this - I can't entirely put my finger on it, but this is a thriller that sticks to a formula. What you end up with is an entertaining story in the style of Harlem Coben, it plays by the rules of thrillers and there were no real surprises.

Do not misread this as a negative review - I really enjoyed this book. What I'm trying to (poorly) convey is this is a candy-floss book - it's really enjoyable, you'll get through it quickly - but it won't keep you sustained.

Like I said at the start though - it's an entertaining story and it's under £1; this isn't a difficult decision for you. Enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled by the hype 23 Jun 2011
By Ginster
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hmmm. Hyped as a book suitable for fans of Steig Larsson and Dan Brown, I bought this for my Kindle. Easy reading it certainly is. Convoluted plot - not really and there were parts of the book which felt like Mills and Boon rather than Michael Crichton. I found this to be fairly predictable. If you want an easy page turner, buy it - its cheap. If you want a book that is designed to leave you breathless with anticipation (as Steig Larsson did so well), then don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Cook meets Michael Crichton in England! 9 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book because I remember thinking of the cold research unit as a cheap holiday option as a student decades ago. Now I know this is fiction, but I was always put off by the idea of getting a cold on my `holiday'. Louise Voss and Mark Edwards really know how to write a gripping story right up until and including the final pages. Thoroughly recommend it. Looking forward to the next Voss/Edwards collaboration, All Fall Down, out February 2013, and which I have already pre-ordered...

5.0 out of 5 stars Contagious reading! 5 Sep 2012
By Jealy73
Format:Kindle Edition
Admittedly I didn't buy CYD (catch your death) I was given it on a recent holiday (paperback copy) . After reading the blurb I thought I'd give it a go and thankful that I did. The characters in the book are very well thought out and you actually find yourself loving (KM) and hating (JS) from the start. The book keeps you on the edge of your seat and is very difficult to put down, a cliche I know but worthy of it.
I would recommend this book to any thriller loving folk and look forward to the next instalment........great movie in the making!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thriller with a REALLY scary bad guy 24 Feb 2012
By R. A. Davison TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Catch Your Death is a crime thriller by writing duo Louise Voss and Mark Edwards who met after Voss, already a published novelist empathised with his struggle as a writer following a TV documentary. Unlike other duos like PJ Tracy or Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees, Voss and Edwards are neither related nor a couple, which makes them a tad unusual in collaborative fiction.

In Catch Your Death, Kate returns to the UK from a life in America after over a decade abroad . She has no plans to return and has essentially abducted her young son. You would think then that this would be the story, but it isn't, or at least it's only part of it. When Kate left all those years ago, she left behind a tragedy, and memories of an accident that make no sense. A fire at a research unit where she volunteered, a fire which killed her beloved boyfriend Stephen.

What Kate doesn't realise is that her knowledge of her days there make her a threat and subsequently a target. Whilst being hunted she pairs up with Stephen's twin Paul and the duo set out to discover what really happened to Stephen all those years ago.

Catch Your Death taps in to what I feel is this really current underlying fear within society, that the next big threat to humanity will come from bioterrorism. Across media from film to television to novels, an apocalypse created by mass but not entire human extinction really is in the zeitgeist of the moment. I'm thinking of Contagion, Survivors, and all the different variations of zombie disasters.

Quite a different story. A little complex but nevertheless worth reading. Makes one think if such practices could happen or indeed have happened.
