Richard L. Mabry has such an expertise at writing hardline medical suspense thrillers and his latest is exceptional. In Miracle Drug, we take a look at the world of a fictious pharmaceutical company that holds the only cure to a rare and fatal disease that has been launched against the former president of the United States as well as an innocent by-stander Rachel Moore. His only hope lies with his recently appointed personal physician Dr. Josh Pearson, who only obtained this position when his colleague passed away of an apparent heart attack. Now it's a race against time to figure out just what these two have been infected with before their symptoms quickly claim their lives.
But is it all really an elaborate assassination attempt, or it is a way to take an ailing pharmaceutical company and bring it back from the verge of going out of business by coming up with the only cure for the former president. What happens if they isn't enough of the antidote to cure them both. You might think it would be a no brainer until you realize that one is the former president and the other is the girl you have fallen in love with. Now the pressure is really on for Josh to figure out what to do as the body count begins to rise and the trail of clues begin to divide among quite a few possible theories.
I received Miracle Drug by Richard L. Mabry MD compliments of Abingdon Press and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. Aside from a free copy of this book, I did not receive any monetary compensation and the opinions here are my own honest and personal ones. Because I have had the opportunity to read so many of Mabry's previous novels, I now automatically choose these because (1) based on his knowledge as a former physician, the medical terms and procedures will always be spot on without all the soap opera drama one might expect and (2) it will always take me to a place where you wonder just how true this could be, especially in light of the recent Ebola scare this year. It definitely gives the reader something to marinate about while you are reading this one. Most people don't have a clue to how far medical science has really advanced and the ways it can be used against others if it falls into the wrong hands. For me, another home room and a well deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars. There is a reader's discussion guide included at the conclusion as well as a sneak peek at the next novel coming out soon, Medical Judgement.
