May 2015 by Abingdon Press
A gunman who has nothing to lose faces a doctor who could lose it all to prove his innocence.
When Dr. Mark Baker and Nurse Kelly Atkinson are held at the mercy of a dangerous gunman, the lives of every emergency room patient are at stake. At the end of the evening three men are dead. One of them is a police officer who couldn’t be saved despite Mark’s best efforts. The other two are members of the feared Zeta drug cartel.
Though the standoff is over, the killing is not, because when the drug cartel loses its members, revenge is not far behind. Facing an adversary whose desires are dark and efforts are ruthless, Mark finds himself under suspicion as a killer, yet still a potential victim. When he turns to his high school sweetheart, attorney Gwen Woodruff, for help, Kelly helplessly looks on, as she hides her own feelings for the good doctor.
At the height of the conflict, three questions remain: Who is the shooter? Who will the next victim be? And can Mark prove his innocence before the gun turns on him?
Whew!!! This story feels as if it were ripped from the headlines of todays newspaper. So real.
I think these types of stories are really scary. They get under your skin and touch a nerve…definitely what Fatal Trauma did for me.
We think of hospitals as places of safety and healing…not the setting for a terrifying experience like this.
As I’m reading….I’m right there, experiencing every heart stopping moment.
Mabry knows his stuff! And he knows how to keep me on the edge of my seat- I love it!
I won’t spoil it for you, but if you love medical thrillers or suspense novels in general….don’t miss Fatal Trauma.
I’ll be looking for Dr. Mabry’s next release!
