Fiction

When reporter Whitney Noland learns that she has cancer, she decides to do an in-depth investigation on researchers who are seeking the illusive cure to the deadly disease. She follows a trail of deception and wealth that leads her into a secret society composed of self-perceived “fellow servants”—a society that, if exposed, would change the world of medicine forever. As Whitney desperately struggles to escape her fate, a web of murder and intrigue draws her deeper and deeper into this underworld of power and greed.

Writings of Gail Ylitalo

    


Excerpt

“She felt lightheaded with excitement. Only those who were fighting the deadly disease and those forced to witness the fight could fully appreciate this victory. For many, a cure for cancer would restore their long-lost faith in God. A break had come her way, and she was thankful. She intended to make full use of it, despite the danger, because other lives now depended on her full participation. The organization was formidable—not even Stan knew all the people in charge. This was a cover up that made Watergate look like a weather report.”



Professional Reviews

The Fellow Servants
“Whitney Noland is a newspaper feature writer that has worked hard to make it to the top. Plagued by severe headaches, Whitney goes to her doctor. The diagnosis is bad, very bad, the worst. At a time when she should be enjoying her hard won career successes, Whitney now has to deal with the inevitability of death.
With strength, courage, and stubbornness that defines Whitney Noland, she takes on her final newspaper assignment. Whitney’s assignment is to pose as a student at a research facility that specializes in top secret cancer treatments. Rumors have surfaced that the facility has discovered an actual working cure for cancer. However, strange accounts of staff suicides, missing persons, and homicides have also plagued the organization. Will Whitney find the story of the century or will she die trying?
The Fellow Servants is a very active, entertaining story with lots of depth. I like the added wrinkle of Whitney having cancer as it makes her circumstances less black and white and more human. I also thought that the tantalizing cat and mouse type relationship between Whitney and Dr. Kilvington added an intriguing dimension to the overall plot as well as illustrating important characteristics of both individuals that made the story that much more captivating and realistic.” Tami Brady, TCM Reviews
