Miracle Drug by Richard L. Mabry, M.D. A Review

The infection wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. The treatment was supposed to take care of it, but it didn’t. Dr. Josh Pearson must get his hands on a particular experimental drug for his patients, which include the President of the United States, for them to have a chance against this different strain of the original virus. But Josh learns that the manufacturer may have already discarded the only supply of the drug. Without it the President and Josh’s other patients will most certainly die. And then Josh is hit with more devastating news: Rachel Moore, a nurse with whom he is falling in love, becomes ill making Josh even more desperate to find the medication.

I'm a retired physician who is now writing. I also stay busy being a husband and grandfather, working on my golf game, and doing the hundred-and-one other things that retired people do.

I got into non-medical writing after the death of my first wife with my book, THE TENDER SCAR: LIFE AFTER THE DEATH OF A SPOUSE. I'm gratified that it continues to help those who have lost a loved one.

From that point, I moved into writing fiction. Thus far I've had seven novels of medical suspense published: CODE BLUE, MEDICAL ERROR, DIAGNOSIS DEATH, and LETHAL REMEDY were the first four. The second and third books listed were named finalists for the ACFW Carol Award and Romantic Times' Best Inspirational Novel respectively, and LETHAL REMEDY won the Selah Award.

Then came STRESS TEST (also a finalist for Romantic Times' Best Inspirational Novel), HEART FAILURE, CRITICAL CONDITION, FATAL TRAUMA, and my latest, MIRACLE DRUG (which made the CBA bestseller list). I've also self-published a novella, RX MURDER, which is currently available for Kindle and in hard copy.

  Miracle Drug by Richard L. Mabry is an excellent novel. It is very intriguing with the way the characters receive the infection and how there is no drug on the market, but an experimental drug that shows promise.
  Miracle Drug is full of mystery and suspense. Just when one problem gets solved another one crops up and you believe that isn’t any way out of the problem, but then things happen and things work out.
  Josh and Rachel are very likable characters whom work in the hospital and she is one of the people who become infected. Josh is the ex-presidents doctor and he also has the same infection that Rachel does. Who gets the very limited supply of the experimental drug?
  Miracle Drug is very suspenseful with a touch of romance. Politics and medicine with suspense and romance make an excellent book. Recommend this book Miracle Drug for your reading enjoyment.
