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.

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.

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.

Quick listen but worth it

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.

Excellent short story; didn't see the end coming

I really enjoyed this book! It is a pleasure listening to a book without any profanity, sex, violence (okay, a tiny bit of violence), or anything else that would make me embarrassed if my kids listened to it. This is a good book.

I liked how it was short, but since I have never read a book of this length it was a bit strange. I listen to a lot of short stores about one hour or less and of course most books are about 8 or 9 hours, so I was leery about whether the author could carry it out. But he did. This would have been a full five stars except for the following:

1.The conversations were a bit...awkward. Nobody speaks like these guys do; most never speak like an English professor giving a lecture. This would be an easy fix--how would "normal" people say the same thing?

2. The praying is okay and doesn't bother me at all. In fact I felt it to be refreshing. But usually, all aspects of a book relate to the plot somehow, so I kept expecting the story to come back to this. But it never need. I am not very knowledgable about Christian Fiction (is this Christian Fiction, or Religious Fiction, or whatever the official term is?) but I was hoping the author would come back to this.

3. The narrator was...well...I don't want to talk bad but she was not the world's best narrator. But this is a personal opinion. It was hard to take her seriously when she was using a "man voice" or a "doctor voice" or even the "Sheriff voice." I wonder how the book would read if I were to read it instead of listen to it. I dare say it would be completely different.

Okay, so with that said, I have two quick additional notes:

1. This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

2. MOST IMPORTANT: I am not an author of fiction, nor do I have a degree in English. I felt this to be a fun book to listen to and didn't see the end coming (although maybe I should have). I have a PhD in History and am overly critical with books so please don't let this be a turnoff. Try this book, you won't be disappointed.

predictable . homicide story

Uninspiring story. as though this is the author's first short story.
Protagonists are flat. I do like the fact that they are Christians and are consistently helping a downtrodden person. The narration is stilted and poorly read as though this is Meghan's first book
to audit. All and all a waste of time and money.

Nice Listen

Overall I liked it. The performance was good. Of course with amount of time, it ended abruptly with the killer coming out of nowhere. But the journey was good
