(Doctor Tess Book 1)
By Pat Wilpenter
Review By Heidi Lynn
I would like to thank Amazon and Pat Wilpenter for giving me this book so I may provide you with this review.
Medical Mysteries and Thriller books has to be one of my favorite genres. I am so glad to come upon Pat Wilpenter's book Sudden Death on Amazon. It is a quick and easy read (34 pages) that hooks you in the first page.
Meet Dr. Tess Angelica Scott a Doctor of the Emergency Response ward at CityWest Hospital. Tess had become a doctor to help people. To relieve pain and to save lives. She had chosen the medical career because she wanted to help her fellow man. Multiple patients came into her ER that night complaining of similar symptoms. Each patient dying before the blood results could com back. Dr. Tess was on a mission to find out what was really going on here.
As a reader I felt Sudden Death was a little teaser leading into the series. Pat Wilpenter's teaser worked and I will be reading his next installment.
Sudden Death gets 4.5 out of 5 stars from me.
There are some sentences or quotations that I wanted to share how good is this author displayed her writing skills. "Jorge probably has a wife and children - and now, he's gone. A strong looking man in the prime of his life - and now he's dead. What caused this?" This short paragarah really starts the whole plot that made reader intrigued on why the patients are dying.
The author does a great job by instilling some curiosity, but I do expect more from this author. She should expand the plot.
This short story has a modern day setting. Most of the scenes are in the hospital. There are various scenes in the hospital that are worth exploring.
The main character is none other than Dr Tess Scott. She is a medical doctor vowed to help fellow human beings with a compassionate heart. There are several instances that she struggled to save a patient in the ER, however, she tells herself why she have to do that and how to be a better ER doctor. The character portrayed the weaker aspect of the human heart.
What I like best of this plot is that it is fast paced, exciting, simple follow with some medical saving scenes. Of course, there are some twists along the way that I was caught by surprise. Don't be fooled by it's pages. It's not the quantity, but the quality of the story.
This book is great for teens, young adults, and even mature readers like myself. If you like great suspense thriller like what I like to write, you'll definitely get lots of entertainment and enjoyment out of this short story.
If there's one thing I'd change about this book, it would be to create the cover with a doctor treating patients having a hospital in the background. The author should add more dialogues, scenes not limiting to hospital only. But overall, I like the story and the plot.
This book looked great on my Kindle Fire tablet. It has good formatting and layout.

You can try this book out as the book is free on Amazon.
I do feel as though the book was rushed. We have a Doctor Tess who has patients that come in all with the same symptoms over a period of time. Yet she is the only one connecting the dots? When she does connect the dots it seems that it is something bigger involved yet we are left wondering if anyone gets in trouble for being behind the dying and the sick people?
Another thing is the scene with the bomb like did the police not talk with Doctor Tess?
I think the author needed to add more to the story and get Tess to actually seem like a doctor.
I would classify this story as more a mystery where things were figured out quickly (not too hard to solve) than a medical thriller. The story is short enough though that I encourage you to read it and decide for yourself.
Sex - none
Language - none
Violence - several people are killed but no graphic descriptions or blood and guts.
