Another Excellent Book by the Good Doctor: Critical Condition-Richard Mabry

About this Book

Dr. Frasier couldn’t save the gunshot victim on her front lawn. Now she’s fighting for her own life.

It began as a quiet dinner party honoring Dr. Shannon Frasier’s colleague, but became a nightmare when a man was shot on her lawn, reviving emotions from a similar episode a decade ago. Then a midnight call from her sister, Megan, causes Shannon to fear that her sister is on drugs again.

Her “almost-fiancé” Dr. Mark Gilbert’s support only adds to Shannon’s feelings of guilt, since she can’t bring herself to fully commit to him. She turns for help to her pastor-father, only to learn that he’s just been diagnosed with leukemia.

Shannon thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then the late-night, threatening phone calls begin, the rough voice asking, “What did he say before he died?”

With everything around her in a critical state, simply staying alive will require all the resources and focus Shannon has.

My Review

I think I’ve read every one of Dr. Mabry’s books and thoroughly enjoyed them. This one was equally as enjoyable. The characters are interesting and I found relating with many of their struggles. I particularly enjoyed the dynamics between Shannon and her little sister. At times I wasn’t sure how I felt about Mark, but over time I found myself liking him.

Although, the story was entertaining and fast-paced from the opening pages until the end, there is a familiarity to this story to other stories by this author. I don’t want to give anything away, but if you’ve read other books by Dr. Mabry you will see the pattern.

This is a stand alone novel and would make a great introduction to an excellent author. If you’ve read and enjoyed Dr. Mabry in the past this one will not disappoint you.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
