Fatal Trauma by Richard L. Mabry, M.D. was an amazing book. This book brings the two things I love most in life in a book. I have read two other books by this author and I have loved them just as much as I loved this one. I have to say that I wasn’t a huge fan of Kelly at first and to be honest I am not sure why. I liked Mark from the start which is crazy to me because usually I don’t like characters like Mark right at the start and I usually love characters like Kelly. By the end of the book I did love both of them but it did take time for me to grow to love Kelly. Parts of this book I did see coming and figure a few things out before they happened but not much so that is always a good thing with these kinds of books for me. If you love medical thrillers than I know you will love this book and any of the others books by this author.
About The Book
Fatal Trauma (Abingdon Press, May 2015)
A gunman who has nothing to lose faces a doctor who could lose it all to prove his innocence.
When Dr. Mark Baker and Nurse Kelly Atkinson are held at the mercy of a dangerous gunman, the lives of every emergency room patient are at stake. At the end of the evening three men are dead. One of them is a police officer who couldn’t be saved despite Mark’s best efforts. The other two are members of the feared Zeta drug cartel.
Though the standoff is over, the killing is not, because when the drug cartel loses its members, revenge is not far behind. Facing an adversary whose desires are dark and efforts are ruthless, Mark finds himself under suspicion as a killer, yet still a potential victim. When he turns to his high school sweetheart, attorney Gwen Woodruff, for help, Kelly helplessly looks on, as she hides her own feelings for the good doctor.
At the height of the conflict, three questions remain: Who is the shooter? Who will the next victim be? And can Mark prove his innocence before the gun turns on him?
