Publisher's Summary

Dr. Elena Gardner learns an OB patient of her fiancé, Dr. David Merritt, is suffering frequent beatings at the hands of her husband. Despite Elena's advice, the wife refuses to take legal action against her abusive husband. David is so frustrated that he loudly and publicly voices his desire to beat the man senseless. When someone actually kills the husband in that fashion, David's offhand expression leads him to the sheriff's office. As the situation worsens, the two doctors form a partnership with a new attorney in town in order to fight a murder charge.

    Story
    "A Quick Listen, But A Quality Listen"

    This is a short novella that packs in spousal abuse, murder, numerous characters to pick from, a great deal of suspense and a few plot twists while we, the reader/listener, go about trying to figure out who done it. The story has a fast pace to it and narrator Meghan Kelly does a great job. She gives us distinctively different voices for the various characters as she brings author Richard Mabry’s story to life. The bottom line is “Rx Murder” is definitely worth your time if you like a good who done it.

    Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Blast.

    Story
    "Will the real murderer please stand up!"

    With Rx Murder, Richard Mabry has given readers a taste of his expertise in writing suspense stories. The novella keeps the pages turning (or in the case of an audible copy, the listening app rolling!) The author does a good job of the emotional subject of spousal abuse and the issues that surround it. Twists and turns to the plot, evocative characters and a surprise murderer are good reasons to pick up this book! Meghan Kelly does a great job of narration, making listening to the book an enjoyable experience.
    I was given an audio edition of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm not sure how the author was able to pack a complex mystery into a short novel but that he did. It was a whodunnit from the beginning with an interesting story line and enough characters (and potential culprits) to keep you guessing. I didn't see the ending (love it when that happens) but I would have liked a bit more build up to the reveal. Still, an overall good story with very good narration.

    "RX Murder"

    This was a very intriguing murder/mystery. You feel such compassion for the wife, and wonder why anyone even cares why the abusive husband died. And the end really has you wondering. Really fun short story.

    Story
    "☤ A Perfectly Timed Mystery"



    ☤ This is a great short story/whodunit written by Richard Mabry. It shows how the happenings in a small town can get out of control. A doctor knows that one of her patients is being domestically abused, however before anything can be done about it the husband turns up dead! Suddenly, the doctor's fiancé (also a doctor) is the prime suspect, due to his vocal statement a few days earlier.

    ☤ Who and how can we get this all sorted out?

    ☤ This thriller is just the right length to listen to on an evening in winter or on the beach in summer. While the subject matter is a bit serious, the book is lightly written without taking away from the crime.

    ☤ The author has done a wonderful thing with this medical thriller.

    ☤ I will sound repetitive, if you have read any of my other reviews of Meghan Kelly. Not only can she perform a book, she chooses the best books to perform. A perfect mix of severity in a relaxed atmosphere are performed almost flawlessly in the short story.

    "Great story with a surprise ending"

    I enjoyed the story. I have to admit that at first I had a hard time with the seeming constant intense tone of the narrator's voice. However, I did get used to it amd ultimately was impressed with her skill in voicing each character, even the male characters.

    I thought the story was enjoyable to listen to once I got used to the voice and I loved the unexpected ending. This was the first book I have "read" by this author, but won't be the last.

    I received a free audible copy of this book in exchange for my honest review which I have given.

    Any additional comments?

    Disclosure: We received a copy from the author/publisher in exchanged for an honest review. This does not influence my review in any shape or form.

    The story was definitely interesting but for me the narrator really made this story for me. I would definitely listen to more books narrated by Meghan Kelly.

    The story was bit cliché abusive husband, pregnant wife and he suddenly ends up dead. I’m pretty sure that was a CSI MIAMI episode. I thought for sure the killer was obvious, I mean everything else was cliché how could I not know who the killer was from the very beginning. But the author was able to throw in some twists to really keep you on your toes.

    I thought the story could have been better developed. I felt like the author missed opportunities to really add mystery to the story and so it wouldn’t have been so cliché. I felt like things were a bit rushed and disjointed, I’m still not sure how we got from point A to point B.

    Missed opportunities really hurt this story for me but the narrator was great.

    "an okay book...."

    though book was short, the author packed a lot into the book...with a surpise ending. I was thoroughly suprised by it. narration was a bit tough to listen to...don't know it was a problem with audible, but the sound fading in and out on my device. that is why I gave a lower rating on performance...but the story itself was excellent. I have listened to the narrator on other books and she was fine...don't know what was the problem.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?


    This story was a quick read or listen.
    Elena and David work with the attorney Randy,
    from there the reader navigates twists and turns filled with suspense.
    David should have known not to say anything out loud about the "wife beater",
    there are always extra ears and eyes everywhere.
    The story makes the reader question just about every character as far as 'who done its' go.
