Stress Test | [Richard Mabry]

Stress Test

Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life as a surgeon in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left the hospital at 2 a.m. have no such plans - they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is fleeing with his life. He does escape, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU...where he awakens to discover he’s being charged with murder. Sandra Murray is a fiery, redheaded lawyer who swore she was done with doctors after her last relationship.

Publisher's Summary

They may not have enough evidence to convict him, but they have enough to ruin his life.

Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life as a surgeon in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left the hospital at 2 a.m. have no such plans - they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is fleeing with his life. He does escape, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU...where he awakens to discover he’s being charged with murder.

Sandra Murray is a fiery, redheaded lawyer who swore she was done with doctors after her last relationship. But when Matt calls, she knows she can’t walk away from defending someone who is truly innocent.

Matt’s career is going down the drain. His freedom and perhaps his life may be next. But with the police convinced he’s a killer and the kidnappers still trying to finish what they started, finding the truth - and the faith to keep going - will be the toughest stress test Matt has ever endured.

    "Warning This is a preachy Christian book"

    Every turn of story the actors ask, "is this why God has brought me here" "Is this what God wanted me to do?" Its a Christian title which was not clear to me to begin with. I find that annoying so I gave it one star. I just wanted to warn others.

    "Pretty average"

    This is a basic thriller, as described on the box. I thought the characters were just a bit flat and dull. I would give it a 2.5 if I could, because it was pleasant enough to listen to (except for all the Christianity stuff).

    "Wrong Place Wrong Time for this character"

    This main character has nine lives for sure....some of the secondary characters were weak but the overall plot was good and then end result was pulled it all together.

    Not my favorite narrator though.

    "Highly Recommend"

    As a Christian it is hard to find action packed Christian adventure stories. This book delivers. It is a great book with a great message with a lot of adventure. I eagerly await his next book.
