Fatal Trauma Book Review

I was eager to read Fatal Trauma by Richard L. Mabry because I remembered really liking Critical Condition by Richard L. Mabry M.D.  If you haven't read any books by this author, you should really check them out.  They are medical based thrillers which are super well written because they are written by a retired doctor!  Gotta love that he is an author and a doctor to use his life experiences to make it even more interesting to the reader.

The gunman had nothing to lose, and therefore, the lives of everyone in the emergency room were at risk. Dr. Mark Baker and nurse Kelly Atkinson were on duty during the standoff, but despite their efforts, at the end of the evening, three men were dead—one police officer and two members of the feared Zeta drug cartel. But the killing is not over, because when the drug cartel loses its members, revenge is not far behind. Mark’s life continues to be in danger, but to make matters worse he finds he is under suspicion as a killer! He turns to his high school sweetheart, attorney Gwen Woodruff, for help, while Kelly helplessly looks on, hiding her feelings for the doctor. The characters in Fatal Trauma face life and death situations that cause them to question their faith, their priorities, and the meaning of their lives, while learning that God can use everyone— even people who’ve failed—because doesn’t that include all of us?

I got this late so I was feeling rushed to read the book but I got it read with plenty of time because I couldn't put it down!! I loved the last book that I read by this author and this was no different.  It had great writing and great characters which were really opened up through the book to show the reader how they were growing in response to everything that was happening.  As I was reading it, I felt like I was in the middle of all the drama and action going on in the book so I was on the edge of my seat.  There was so many different things going on at the same time that it was action packed even if it was just two people eating lunch because you learned really important information.  I love when an author tells the story through the actions of the characters instead of more of a narration because it makes you feel like you are in the middle of the action.  I really need to add some of his other books to my reading list but I always forget so this book was a reminder for me.  I hope that you add this and others by Richard Mabry to your reading list soon!!!  I know that you will enjoy this one and I can't wait to hear what you think!

**I was provided a copy of this book for my review and honest opinion.  All opinions here are my own.  If you are interested in getting books from the Litfuse publishing group, you can check out their website at here.
