If you haven't heard of Richard Mabry then you're missing out. This author writes medical suspense and he's really good at it. Stress Test opens with action that doesn't let up until the end. I whipped through this book in one day while the housework waited (I think my clothes are still in the dryer!)
What I liked about this book is that it kept my attention and didn't confuse me with too many characters.
Dr Matt Newman and Sandra Murray were both characters that had depth to them, plus they were Christians with a moral standard.
Well researched and thought-provoking, Stress Test is a great way to spend a few hours.
From the back cover:
Dr Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life as a surgeon in private practice for a better on in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left the hospital at 2 a.m. have no such plans--they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt's only thought is fleeing with his life. He does escape, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU...where he awakens to discover he's being charged with murder.
Sandra Murray is a fiery redheaded lawyer who swore she was done with doctors after her last relationship. But when Matt calls, she knows she can't walk away from defending someone who is truly innocent.
Matt's career is going down the drain. His freedom and perhaps his life may be next. But with the police convinced he's a killer and the kidnappers still trying to finish what they started, finding the truth--and the faith to keep going--will be the toughest stress test Matt has ever endured.
