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.”
“A fast-paced rollercoaster thriller – MEGA Book of the Month!”
Also Available Now: All Fall Down, the thrilling sequel to Catch Your Death

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.
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.
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!
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.
The characters are realistic and believable although it is just a chance meeting that sets Kate and Paul up right at the start but then if they didn't meet there'd be no story! Also right at the end, without giving anything away, the resolution to the final part of the story had me flicking back a few pages to see if I'd missed something and I hadn't really - the ending just came together very quickly and bluntly.
But all that said, it's a good story. I'll certainly read more by these guys and have moved straight on to Killing Cupid.
