Miracle Drug

Miracle Drug

Miracle Drug (Abingdon, September 2015)

Overcoming these odds will take more than a miracle drug—it will take a miracle.

The infection wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. The treatment was supposed to take care of it, but it didn’t. Then Dr. Josh Pearson discovers why—his patients, including the former President of the United States, have been dosed with a different strain of the original virus, one that is universally fatal. The only chance for survival is treatment with an experimental drug, but the manufacturer might already have discarded its supply.

As if treating the President of the United States isn’t stressful enough, the situation goes from bad to worse when Rachel Moore, a nurse Josh is falling in love with, falls ill. With the nation’s eyes on him, Josh must pull off a miracle to save a man who holds a good deal of power and the woman who holds his heart.

  • My experience reading books written by retired doctor Richard L. Mabry has been enjoyable and a pleasure to recommend to others. As his latest book emerged, I looked forward to reading it. I was absolutely not disappointed! From the first page, the story was fast paced and interesting.

    The need to find the source of an American ex-president’s illness and treat him accelerates with the discovery that the initial diagnosis while correct is only a small part of the problem, and the race is critically paced to find a cure. The plot thickens as an assassin manages to slip past the armed guards and into the ex-president’s room. He is discovered and killed in the nick of time. Who sent him? How wide-spread is the plot to kill this ex-president?

    As Secret Service and local police ….

  • I loved it and finished it super fast because I couldn’t put it down. Even though it specifically tells you at the beginning that this is a work of fiction, it is something you can totally see happening (which is probably why there was a disclaimer at the beginning). It seems that it would make an amazing movie!! The characters were really great because as the reader, I felt like I was in the middle of the action and trying to figure out who the good guys and the bad guys were. It was really hard to tell and it had me on the edge of my seat. I loaned the book to my mother and she said that she was hooked by chapter one! I can’t wait to see what she thinks of it when she is done!

  • In this book, the former president and a nurse, Rachel, come back from South America with a slight cough. Rachel’s boyfriend just so happens to be a doctor – who has just been assigned to be the former president’s personal doctor. Josh, the doctor, wants to get the two of them checked out for international diseases. What turns up is frightening – a bacteria which is immune to all antibiotics. The only hope is a drug that isn’t FDA approved. But can they get their hands on enough of the drug to save both lives?

    This book is filled with mystery, suspense, and conflict. I love the medical aspect of Mabry’s writing. It’s intriguing and adds something that most other books don’t contain. I highly recommend this book as well as Mabry’s other books.

  • Miracle Drug is the kind of medical thriller I enjoy reading. Just enough terminology to remind you that a doctor wrote it, not so much that you feel you need a Johns Hopkins degree just to get to the next chapter. Quite timely in light of events that took place just after Mabry finished writing the book, the “universally fatal” disease and its scarce cure will keep you on the edge of your seat.

    Clear out enough time in your day to read Miracle Drug because once you start this book, you won’t want to put it down until you’ve finished. A plot fraught with possibilities and suspects, a whisper of romance, and a gentle nudge of faith make this an excellent choice for fans of Lee Child, Dee Henderson or Terri Blackstock… or even House.

  • Murder, mystery, mayhem, romance and political intrigue, Miracle Drug is sure to appeal to both male and female readers alike.
    At the heart of the novel is faith – a gentle, quiet, steadfast faith that produces calm within a storm.
    Miracle Drug will have you on the edge of your seat. See if you can guess the outcome… I couldn’t!

  • I was given the chance to review, Miracle Drug, written by Dr. Richard Mabry. This book is a medical suspense with a Christian foundation that showcases the medical crisis, and ethical dilemma, that strikes a young doctor, Dr. Josh Pearson. Dr. Pearson is suddenly, and unexpectedly, thrust into the middle of a suspenseful virulent bacterial outbreak after the death of his mentor. The book is full of suspense, but the prayer and Christian tones make for a lighter mood. It is not “in-your-face” religious. It is refreshing to read a suspense drama that isn’t full of foul language and other “trash” that seems so prevalent now a days. Great characters, well developed story, ending with a twist. GREAT!

  • Miracle Drug by Dr. Mabry was an interesting medical suspense novel, though certainly not my favorite of his works. I have read several of his novels, but I felt that this was not his strongest work. The plot line had great promise, and I liked the opening chapters as the situation was laid out and the race was on to find a cure. However, the climax occurred way too early in the book, and I was left struggling to stay interested in a book where the crisis was over and all that was left was to figure out who was behind it. I did enjoy many aspects of the plot, such as the intrigue and the politics and work behind the development and production of new drugs. I just felt that the entire story could have been put together in a more streamlined fashion that was easier to read and to enjoy.

  • I have loved Mabry’s other novels and this one is another favorite!! I love the character development, I love the action and the suspense. I love that you cannot really figure out the final answers until you get there! I love that Miracle Drug was a fast paced novel with a story I did not want to put down.

  • Miracle Drug by Dr. Richard Mabry was another great book by this author. This is the fourth book by this author that I have read and I loved this one just as much if not more than the other 3 that I have read. I know part of the reason that I love his books is because they are medical thrillers and I love anything having to do with the medical field. I can’t say enough good things about this author and his books.

  • I love medical mysteries and Richard Mabry writes them well. Miracle Drug contains the perfect mix of medicine, mystery, tender romance and faith. Mabry includes the medical jargon in such a way as to not be over the heads of his readers but sometimes the explanations came off as very elementary. The characters were two dimensional and the scenarios are believable. Miracle Drug is an easy and intriguing read that draws you in at the beginning and doesn’t let you go until the very end. While the “who” behind the evil plot was revealed a bit too early, Mabry’s story line keeps you reading. The subject matter is current and causes the reader to constantly ask, “What if” while reading.

  • Dr. Mabry really knows how to write a thriller that will grab your attention and then keep it until he decides to let go. I think “Miracle Drug” is Dr. Mabry’s best medical thriller to date. Action, mystery and suspense these are the ingredients of “Miracle Drug”.

  • What would you do if you had a mysterious event happen and found yourself doused with an unknown substance? Then days later you start showing systems of diphtheria only to find out later there is an underlying disease and possibly no cure. That is the basis of Miracle Drug.

    Two victims are doused and one doctor must try to save them. But what if there is only enough medication to treat one? Does he treat his infected girlfriend or the former President of the United States? You will have to read Dr. Richard Mabry’s newest medical thriller “Miracle Drug” to find out the decision that is made.

    I believe “Miracle Drug” is Dr. Mabry’s best book to date. I would like to thank Litfuse Publicity & Abingdon Press for my review copy.

    On a 5-Star scale – 5 Huge stars!!!!!

  • Dr. Mabry intertwined elements of faith throughout as these characters struggles with the uncertainty in life and love. Together with all the great elements of the story, “Miracle Drug” is indeed for everyone. You won’t be able to put it down. Love it!

  • Miracle Drug starts off with an immediate murder that throws the reader right into this medical thriller where not only the former president of the United States is at risk, but so is the main character’s girlfriend. There was a constant feel of underlying suspense, of knowing that something was going to happen, but not when or what or even who would be involved. The suspense continued all the way to the end with plenty of red herrings to confuse the reader as to who the villain(s) would be. With some elements of romance and inspiration mixed in, this story was an exciting read perfect for inspirational medical thriller, suspense, or romantic suspense fans.

  • I am a big fan of medical novels and the Christian suspense genre, so combining the two is a win-win! Dr. Richard Mabry has crafted a compelling story that could come from today’s headlines. The tug of war between politics and personal relationships takes center stage when two lives hang in the balance, and Dr. Mabry portrays the tension well….Complex characters and multiple possible suspects kept me guessing at the resolution throughout the story.

  • Once again I spent my time trying to figure out who done it and was surprised at the outcome. I tend to think that a great book either teaches me something new or it gives me more in depth information about something I may know a little about. Overall, I found this book to be very informative with a bit of romance.

  • If you start off with the idea in your head that somebody has to be the personal physician for the most recent former president of the United States, so why not the main character in this book, Dr. Josh Pearson? And the idea that quite a few someones would travel with the former president when he goes abroad, so why not the main character’s girlfriend?

    Once I got past those thoughts, and actually started getting into the story, I had a hard time putting the book down.

  • The story started off quickly, immediately creating a scene of mystery. This introduction was a great way to pull the reader right in and the movement of the story kept the reader engaged. With the author being a retired physician, he had the background to really make the medical conditions, the lab tests, the diagnostic practice and the life of the medical professionals come to life for the reader. There were plenty of ‘decoys’ interspersed in the story, characters that helped move the story along and served as a reasonable ‘suspect’ for the reader. I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading his other books, but felt like the end was a little rushed…with the answers a little too neatly wrapped up. Some of the wrap up left me scratching my head – not sure why they were needed.

  • While holding to his medical thriller roots, author Richard Mabry seems a bit lost in this book. The imagery is flat, the pace is pedantic, and the plot feels forced. Everything seems a bit superficial, which is uncharacteristic of this author. Still one of my favorite authors, this is probably one I would have trouble recommending wholeheartedly

  • While this story sounded like it would be interesting, it started slow and failed to really grab my attention and imagination. I found the characters to be hard to really get to know. It is an interesting mystery that was written before the Ebola outbreak, which is interesting, since it is kind of along the same lines. Fans of medical mysteries should enjoy the journey that Dr. Pearson goes on to try and save the former president and his girlfriend.

  • Can you even imagine being a doctor and your patient is the Former President of the United States?? Can you imagine what you would do if he got sick…and I mean REALLY SICK?? You learn that He has been infected with a virus that usually kills it’s victims! Welcome to Dr. Josh Pearson’s life! Oh but wait…it gets worse. His girlfriend has also been infected and there is only enough of the serum to give to one person… Not two!!
    Nothing like a murder to get you hooked you right away, and well, you just can’t put it down!! I have loved all of Dr. Mabry’s book and this one just might be my favorite! If you like Medical Suspense, and a little romance too, then this is a MUST READ for you!!

  • I received an ARC of Miracle Drug from Litfuse Publicity for an honest review.

    This is my first Christian, medical thriller and it was fantastic! To me, there’s nothing more frightening than when a doctor writes a book on a medical catastrophe. There’s no doubting the information and how something trivial to the patient can escalate into a major event. In this case, a vaccination was manipulated into a monster of a medical thriller. Dr. Mabry made this story scary because it could be real.

    Miracle Drug is about a Dr. Josh Pearson, who’s honored with an amazing job: personal physician to the ex-President of the United States… Read more at http://tinyurl.com/owv3jza

  • I have always loved medical fiction novels. I’ve read one other book from Mabry, “Fatal Trauma”. His newest book “Miracle Drug” was even better than the last book IMO.

  • Mabry is skilled at keeping you up at night. He also has a talent for keeping you entangled in the story until you are finally able to breathe at the end. If you have never read Mabry’s books, you have been missing out. This is his best yet and one you won’t likely forget.

  • EmpowerMoms says:

    Dr. Josh must decide who to keep alive longer-the former President of the United States or his girlfriend, a well loved nurse. They both catch a deadly disease while traveling together out of the country and its up to Dr. Josh and his team to determine what the disease is and how to treat it before its too late.

    I loved the fast pace of this story and learning about the (fictitious) disease and medical terms. Dr. Josh doesn’t know who to trust to get an illegal drug that may save lives, and why people keep getting killed.

  • From the untimely death of the former president’s chief medical physician to the explosive ending, the characters grow, change, and in many cases end up much stronger spiritually, emotionally, and physically, knowing that in the end God is always in control.

    The only thing I don’t like about reading medical thrillers is the symptoms my mind tries to imitate. I have come to the conclusion that I have an overactive imagination! If you or someone you know loves the complexities of the medical profession and pharmacology, I highly recommend Miracle Drug by Richard Mabry.

  • I’ve had the privilege to review several of Dr. Mabry’s books and I’ve enjoyed every one. This one is no exception.
    By the end of the first chapter, there’s a sub-plot that I didn’t see coming. I even said, “OOOO!” out loud.
    The story isn’t as much fast paced, as it is full of thought provoking story lines making me wonder what choices I would make. I think you’d enjoy this book! A few surprises, a few twists, some tension, and a doctor just trying to do the right thing!

  • I’ve been reading Doctor Richard Mabry’s books for several years and I’ve watched him grow as a writer. What used to be a general medical mystery has now taken on a whole new life. His writing is stronger and deeper than ever and in Miracle Drug the reader is also involved in an international political drama. This is fast paced and will keep your attention until the end. Very well written and entertaining.

  • Although Richard Mabry has written several suspense novels, this is the first time I’ve actually read one by him. I didn’t know what to expect, but what I got was a fast paced plot with only moments of respite. Even after the medical emergency is resolved the high tempo continues. This is now a full blown criminal suspense. There’s blackmail and murder. No one appears to be safe, including the former president’s doctor.

    Like Josh, I thought I had everything figured out. I thought I knew who was innocent and who was guilty. I was wrong, and I’m happy to admit that. It means the writing was good enough to throw me off. Overall, it’s a book I enjoyed reading even though at times I wanted to jump to the end to see how it turned out.

  • Moments says:

    This book begins with drama and throws the reader right into the midst of the action and suspense and holds the reader’s attention all the way to the end. There are so many other characters that are involved as Mr. Madison is so important that he is constantly surrounded by people of power and those whom have connections around the world and are able to make things happen. However, Josh quickly learns that one can never be too trusting and money and power may be stronger than loyalty. I found myself guessing and changing my mind several times throughout the book as I thought I knew who was behind something and what someone else was up to, but I was surprised and eager to read on and unravel all of the layers of the story.

  • His books never disappoint!!! I thought i had the plot figured out but as usual there were a few twists i didn’t see coming. I thought one persons secret was that they were behind the danger but not so. It turned out to be something entirely different. I cant say much more without giving it away but i loved this book. Fast paced. Edge on your seat at times and with minimal mushy gushy moments.

  • If you love medical suspense books then you are going to love reading Miracle Drug. The scenes and details are so real. A suspenseful book that will draw you into the story

  • Buzz4Mommies says:

    A book by Richard L. Mabry, M.D. is in a class of it’s own! It is hard to fit it into one genre. It is part suspense/thriller, part medical drama, part action, and part Christian Fiction. This is one of the reasons why I love his books and Miracle Drug is no different! I loved how it kept me guessing right up to the end. It is always fascinating to me how he weaves his medical expertise throughout the book, and even though parts of it in this book are pure fiction they seem as if they can be real. He doesn’t talk down to you about medical procedures yet it is understandable, and this is great because it moves the story.

  • As always, I enjoyed this book by Dr. Mabry, it was a delightful blend of medical drama, character development, religion and romance. This book really kicks up the suspense and drama a notch! I loved the fast pace action and could hardly put this book down. I enjoyed the characters in the book even if they are a bit too brilliant and too beautiful, but it still was an excellent read. An excellent book that keeps you guessing until the end. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

  • I have always been fascinated by the medical world. And this author here is one of my favorites who writes medical dramas interesting enough to capture the attention of those who dare to delve into them. In all reality, these books would be at the top of my list for medical novels. I have read a few others and they just didn’t pull me in the way these do.

  • I would recommend this amazing book to anyone who enjoys medical mystery novels and they love a good adventure. I liked how Dr. Richard L. Mabry, M.D. explains the medical terminology in way a non-medical background can understand what occurs. I also loved how he described the steps and process it takes for the FDC to approve new drugs. I have read a few books by Dr. Mabry and let me tell you, his stories keep getting better and better. His new book is very fast paced and it will grab the reader’s attention until the case is solved. I liked how Dr. Mabry was able to keep me guessing on who was behind the crime and who was attempting to assassinate the former president. If you’re seeking a new mystery book, then read this one!

  • A fantastic, well written and thought out novel from start to finish. An excellent build up both in the plot line and character development. Perfect for all readers regardless of medical background or not.

  • Book by Book says:

    Once again, Dr. Richard L. Mabry delivers an intriguing medical drama with his latest novel, Miracle Drug. It offers fans of medical thrillers an addicting and enjoyable read, and I would recommend it.

  • Richard Mabry has become one of my favorite authors. His books are the perfect blend of medical drama, suspense, and romance; and are always hard for me to put down once I start reading them. This book was not an exception to that, and due to my being mixed up with review dates, I didn’t realize this book review was due today until halfway through today….. so I came home from work and have been reading it all evening.

  • I liked seeing behind the scenes of the medical profession and watching Josh race against time to save his patient and his girlfriend. One thing that bothered me was that they had been dating for a year, yet Rachel didn’t know where Josh stood on faith. I liked the varied viewpoints to the story. There was also a hint of romance.

  • By The Book says:

    Richard Mabry will have you turning the pages to keep up with the twisting action in Miracle Drug. This medical drama left me tense as I joined with the characters to find a miracle cure for a rare and deadly bacterial infection. And if that’t not enough, the struggle to survive is complicated by hired killers! Miracle Drug is another winner by Mabry.

  • This fast-paced suspense kept me guessing until the very end. If you need a healthy dose of suspense laced with romance, Miracle Drug is the perfect prescription!

  • Boy, do these people ever need a miracle drug! Once they locate the drug, they need another miracle to find more of it.

    There’s intrigue and suspense galore. This is one of those books you can neither put down nor turn the pages fast enough.

    As always, Dr. Mabry keeps the adrenalin flowing. Being a nurse, I also appreciated seeing proper protrayal of medical ethics, protocol and procedures. Thank you, Dr. Mabry.

    ***A special thank you to litfuse for providing a review copy.***

  • Dr. Richard Mabry, retired physician who enjoys writing “medical suspense with heart,” has written a captivating and thrilling novel in his latest release, Miracle Drug. Dr. Mabry has done his homework, writing a novel that will leave readers on the edge of their seats wondering what will happen next.

  • 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.

  • How would you decide? If you had two people whose lives depended on you, but you could only help one of them, how would you ever decide which one to help? Or would you try to help both, knowing that in doing so you risked losing both because you didn’t focus on just one?

    Details, suspense and intrigue will keep you turning pages in this latest novel by Dr. Mabry. His skill at telling a tale with just the right amount of tension makes it so hard to put the book down!

  • Miracle Drug by Richard Mabry, MD is an extreme suspense novel featuring exciting characters and a dramatic plot. Every suspense lovers dream!!

  • The summary of this book really intrigued me and the book lives up to most of the hype. Trying to figure out who was behind the attack on David Madison and Rachel Moore was difficult. About the time I thought I had narrowed down the suspects, new information would come out that threw a wrench in my thinking. I liked the way the author weaved faith in throughout the novel and how prayer was very beneficial to all the characters.

  • Imagine being the doctor with two patients who will die unless they receive an experimental drug and there is only enough of it to treat one of them. To make the decision more difficult, one of the patients is the former President of the U.S. and the other is the woman the doctor loves. Dr. Josh Pearson finds himself in just this “lifeboat” type conundrum when he suddenly learns that he has been chosen to replace the former President’s personal physician.

    “Miracle Drug” is a tense, contemporary medical suspense story that takes the reader behind the scenes as doctors, Secret Service members, and local law enforcement work together to save the lives of the former President and a young nurse who had been infected with a rare but deadly disease and to discover who wants the ex-President dead and is willing to kill others to achieve their purpose.

  • Miracle Drug is classic Mabry – suspenseful and completely unpredictable! I love Mabry’s stories for a few reasons, but primary among them is the fact that I can never pick out the villain and there’s always some sort of shocking twist just before the climax. I don’t know how Mabry does it, but he’s a master at keeping the whodunit details quiet.

    Miracle Drug melds the best of my favorite genres – crime and science and mystery. If you enjoy reading any of these, this is definitely a must-read.

  • WOW! This is my very first read of his and I must say that it will not be my last. Just when you think you have it all figured out the twist and turns the story takes is really keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    If you are a fan of thrillers, murder mysteries that involve medical mysteries. Come join Richard Mabry as he takes you on a journey to solve a crime of deadly consequences. You have a deceased person, missing bodies taken and then showing up again. All the sudden two people get sick with a deadly disease that the only drug to fix it is experimental and it may or may not be available.

    What if you were holding the life of a former President of the United States in your hands? What if you were holding the life of a woman that you loved? The answers to these questions can be found in the book Miracle Drug by Richard Mabry, M.D. Come on and check it out.

  • Miracle Drug is a fast paced medical thriller involving a mysteriously evolving infection, a former U.S. president and a doctor compelled to place his faith in God when pushed to the limit of his own abilities. It’s a wildly entertaining rush of adrenalin! I really enjoy how Richard Mabry uses his medical expertise (the author is a retired physician) to educate and entertain his readers. His characters are well developed and a pleasure to read about. I particularly relished the powerfully capable Karen Marks- no one gets in her way! I also loved the vulnerability shown by Dr. Josh Pearson- a knowledgeable doctor that wears his heart on his sleeve. Miracle Drug is just what the doctor ordered for a chilly night by the fire.

  • I really enjoy Richard Mabry’s writing and this one was no different, although this one did seem a bit slower than some of his others and took me a little longer to get in to, it proved worth it to stay with the book and keep reading. Maybe because I’m used to reading medical books and journals some of the terms and the constant explanations got on my nerves a little bit, but I also recognize not everyone will know or be familiar with some medical terminology. Again, like in his other books there is the criminal aspect but nothing is so gruesome that would be stomach turning and of course, because he lives up to the name of Christian fiction, no cussing or sex scenes.

  • I have long enjoyed Dr. Mabry’s books. He keeps the medical aspect of the mystery easy for the layman to understand, yet I think intelligent enough for those in the medical field to still enjoy. I love how he uses his expertise to create great characters and story lines pertaining to the medical field. I enjoy the mystery and the suspense that he builds in his characters!

  • Fic Gal says:

    The title of this book got my attention. It also has a creepy cover which is perfect for this time of year or whenever you’re just in the mood for a creepy read. It also made me realize just how long it has been such I’ve read a Robin Cook book. If you’re a fan of medical thrillers you’re sure to enjoy this one.

    It all starts off with a death that seems to be natural but something happens that makes people question that. The cool thing about this book is that this story isn’t so far fetched. I wouldn’t be surprised if something like that has happened.

    Read the rest of my review on my site.

  • A Book Lover says:

    This was an okay medical themed Christian fiction mystery/suspense book. The premise of the plot was interesting. SPOILER ALERT: I felt like the climax of the plot came way too early. The rest of the book was finding out who was behind getting the President and Rachel sick and why. END
    The book moved slower than expected for a mystery/suspense book until the end which was explosive. Some of the characters needed more development. I did like the relationship between Josh and Rachel. The bad guy was easy to guess and a twist at the end did not fit the book. Overall it was not the best medical thriller by this writer. I loved his Prescription for Trouble series. I look forward to seeing what he writes next.

  • The novel begins immediately with a murder, followed by suspense and the reader’s desire to know more. I appreciate the medical details and depth within the novel, but I especially enjoyed how I was left guessing for the entire novel as to who were the “good guys” and the “bad guys” as a former President of the United States’ life is in jeopardy. It’s clear that Dr. Josh Pearson is the main protagonist, but the majority of the characters remain in a ‘gray area’ throughout the novel–and those unknowns make it hard to stop reading! I enjoyed this novel, and I now plan to read more of Richard Mabry’s works.

  • This book starts right off the bat you are hooked and when you think you have it all figured out it makes another twist and turn. Very well written book that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. This book is better that Fatal Trauma. I rate this a 5.

  • With interesting and unique characters, Miracle Drug is a fast, action packed suspense that will have you on your toes throughout the book! Just when I thought I had the bad guy figured out, another twist or turn would happen and I was at square one again. Thanks one of the things I love about Dr. Mabry’s books. Another unique thing about his books is that being a Doctor, Dr. Mabry has first hand experience and knowledge about anything medical.

  • What is Dr. Josh Pearson going to do? He believes that he knows of a new drug not approved yet will stop people from dying because of an infection. Now, he has a huge problem . there is only enough for one person. He has 2 patients that need the drug from him. His girlfriend, and the other person who happens to be the person who used to be president of the United States. What is he going to do? Who will he choose to save? This is a book that is full of suspense. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review by Litfuse Publicity Group and all opinions are mine.

  • Come and enjoy an unforgettable read, you won’t be able to put it down and it will have you riveted to each page as you discover who to trust and where you went wrong.

  • After reading another of this author’s books previously I knew I was going to love this medical drama. I love learning about medicine even if it’s fiction! And suspense novels are a favorite of mine as well. This combines both and does it in a fast paced stay one step ahead way.

    I can’t even begin to imagine how our main character Josh has to decide who can have the one dose of antiviral. This well thought out drama keeps you moving and guessing and not wanting to put your book down. Does Josh choose his girlfriend who he’s about to propose to or the ex President who he is personal physician to? Such decisions! Or can he call in favors to an old pal and find more antiviral. . . .

    So many variables and so many players in this game of a book. I was intrigued and spellbound.

  • I love Richard L Mabry’s books so much. I’m such a huge sucker for medical drama and mystery. His books are always so realistic since he is a doctor himself. Miracle Drug is about Dr. Josh Pearson’s girlfriend and the former President of the United States being infected with what looks like a normal strain of a virus to start. It’s highly infectious but should be able to be cured with modern medicine. But when it doesn’t work and they find out that it is a different strain their lives hang in the balance. From there it is a roller coaster ride of finding enough of the miracle drug to save both of them.
