|'You'll Catch Your Death'
by Jeremy Burnham
Ear, nose, and throat specialists are inexplicably sneezing themselves to death, and the only clues are plain, white, and mysteriously empty envelopes found by the corpses. While Tara is captured by the enemy, Steed talks to a stationery specialist, and learns that a nursing school ordered 10,000 envelopes, but and no writing paper. After investigating the nursing school, Steed soon discovers that the envelopes are far from empty - they actually contain a concentrated viral strain that kills the victim instantly. He manages to locate the perpetrators, but will he be in time to stop them before Tara catches a cold..?
