Product Description

Review

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!”
-LoveReading.co.uk

Also Available Now: All Fall Down, the thrilling sequel to Catch Your Death

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.

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.

This is the third book by the Edwards/Voss duo that I've read and like the others I found myself gripped from beginning to end. As usual with their books the big strength is the characters, they become so alive and jump off the page to remain with you long after you have finished the story.
Kate is a scientist specialising in deadly viruses. When her marriage to (American) Vernon is finally over, Kate returns to England with her young son Jack. A chance encounter on a London street, blasts her back 16 years to when, as a student , she was a volunteer at a centre set up to find a cure for the common cold. The past and present merge into a foggy mist of half forgotten memories and things soon escalate into a race against time, as Kate and Paul get more and more drawn into the a plot to spread a deadly virus across the world.
The story line is very thought provoking and scary - germ warfare comes to mind. I found the scientific explanations just enough to give credibility to the plot without being over complicated and losing my interest. Sampson is a seriously scary character and drawn so well you feel you can get under his skin, definitely not someone you would want to meet!
A really exciting book and although I thought the end was going to be a bit predictable and tame, I soon found it wasn't that tame after all and the last pages once again threw me into a nail biting state of (good) tension!
Brilliant read.

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.

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...
