Stress Test~Richard Mabry~Book Review

About the book: They may not have enough evidence to convict him, but they have enough to ruin his life.
Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left his last shift in the ER have no such plans-they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is escape. He does so, 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. 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 murderer 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.


My thoughts:

I’ve read several of Dr. Mabry’s books and enjoyed them. When I saw this book was available for review, I signed up. He’s a great author and I enjoy his writing.
This book was fast paced, exciting, and kept me turning page after page.


Dr. Matt Newman covers a shift for another doctor and gets kidnapped as he leaves the hospital.


He’s then accused of murdering a woman who is found in his trunk. The only problem is that he was just in that trunk and escaped hours before. The detective doesn’t believe him so his only hope is a good lawyer.


If you like mysteries, you just may enjoy this book—pick it up and give it a try!
