Critical Condition by Dr. Richard Mabry Book Review

by adustyframe ~ May 5th, 2014

I’ve read most of Dr. Mabry’s books and really enjoy them! I like that he has the medical knowledge to make those parts of the story believable.

This book was no exception to his usual great writing! I enjoyed it a lot and found myself reading too far into the night (AGAIN!–not good with a baby but I couldn’t help it!)

About the 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 thoughts:

Shannon Frasier struggles with gunshot patients and guns in general due to a traumatic incident in her past. So when a man is murdered in her front yard, she has to face her old fears.

When things turn sinister, she doesn’t know whom to trust or where to turn. Her boyfriend tries to help her turn to God but her faith is still shaky.

Was the murdered man a friend of her sister’s? Did her sister have something to do with the murder? Did one of the shady men in her sister’s past have more going on than anyone knew?

While they try to discover what the dying man meant by his last words, Shannon fears that the police aren’t trustworthy either!

I think you’ll enjoy this book. If medical suspense isn’t your thing, you can still give it a try. There’s a little element of romance too!
