Book Description

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. Book One of the series is Operation Neurosurgeon. 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, eBook Reviewer
Midwest Book Review

“Silent Fear is an engaging work of medical fiction … it’s very successful as a medical mystery for the hospital and the CDC to solve … this (is) an enjoyable read.”
The San Francisco Book Review

Silent Fear’s “plot has much to commend … an interesting medical ‘drama’ novel.”

    About the Author

    A physician, speaker, and former chemist, Barbara Ebel’s writing draws heavily from her experience as an anesthesiologist, her dealings with family court, and her interactions with people and places from around the world. Since Ebel writes credible medicine into the background of her novels and her O.R. scenes shine, it’s no wonder the first in her Dr. Danny Tilson Novels, Operation Neurosurgeon, was the top finalist for best selling medical mystery books in 2012. (Best Selling Books’ blog announced on PR Buzz Press Release Wire, Chicago, IL). The ranking derives its roster of bestsellers from sources such as Amazon and Goodreads and uses readers’ ratings, reviews and title sales for a blended score that creates each book’s final rank. In addition to her adult writing, she has illustrated and penned a children’s book series called Chester the Chesapeake. The books developed during her philanthropic visits with her therapy dog, Chester. The dog books continue to inspire adults and children alike. Along with her husband and four pets, “Doctor Barbara” lives in a wildlife corridor in middle Tennessee. Her book, Silent Fear, is the second of the Dr. Danny Tilson novels.

    More About the Author

    Barbara Ebel is a physician-turned author who sprinkles credible medicine into the background of her plots, but her characters and plots take center stage. Since she practiced as an anesthesiologist, her work shines when it comes to operating room scenes.

    Novelist Ebel's first novel, Operation Neurosurgeon: You never know...who's in the OR is about the rise and fall of a fictional neurosurgeon in Nashville, TN. Her newest novel, Outcome, A Novel: There's more than a hurricane coming... delves into multiple characters from Indiana to Peru whose lives get entangled after a monstrous storm, including the protagonist's heartwarming dog who escapes the crushed metal pile into the blowing sand and gusty winds.

    Besides writing her adult novels, "Doctor Barbara," works her own trained therapy dog and was encouraged to write him into a children's book. The project culminated in her penning and illustrating three children's books using real pictures of her dogs called Chester the Chesapeake. The dog is used as the template to inspire good behavior in children.

    Although novelist Ebel has lived up and down the U.S.east coast, she now resides with her husband and pets in a protected wildlife corridor in Tennessee. "Perfect for writing," she says. She believes her head is crammed with material from her varied background just waiting to be put down.
