Stress Test grabbed a hold of me and held on tight from the first page to the very last. It's an entertaining combination of mystery and drama spiked with a bit of romance and a touch of inspiring faith. I often review books written particularly for women, but Stress Test is a book both men and women would enjoy- it's a rush of pulse pounding excitement! The author, Dr. Richard L. Mabry, uses his medical expertise and masterfully weaves it into the story. Much of the book takes place in the ER which is fascinating. The main character, Dr. Matt Newman, is a likable and believable character and this goes for Sandra Murray, his attorney, as well. God brings them together under the toughest of circumstances when Matt loses almost everything. Not only is he kidnapped and accused of murder- he suffers a brain injury and almost dies. Believe it or not, that is just the beginning! Matt Newman struggles to figure out why people are trying to kill him and why he's being accused of murder- before it's too late. I anxiously read this book in 2 days, eager to discover the answers. Thoroughly enjoyable! I can't wait to read more medical suspense masterpieces by Richard L. Mabry, M.D..
