Editorial Reviews

Review

"The plot moves along with plenty of action and empathy, and there's suspense and suspicion enough to keep readers zipping to the last pages. For Christian suspense fans anxious to see characters who ought to have it all--doctors and lawyers--react to the pressure of false accusations and the struggle to be loyal to the truth and to one another, Mabry's novel arrives with a positive prognosis."
         Publisher's Weekly 

"Mabry's latest provides fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action and suspense. His medical knowledge is evident in the realistic and detailed characters and scenes."
            Romantic Times Book Reviews (4 ½ stars) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

So if the name Stress Test isn't enough to pique your interest, let me fill you in on Richard Mabry's latest book. Stress Test is the story of Dr. Matt Newman. Dr. Newman just about has his life on track with a quieter professional position and a love interest that is headed in the direction of marriage. That is until he is kidnapped in a parking garage in the middle of the night. Suddenly he finds himself in ICU with a looming charge for murder.

Can his beautiful red-headed attorney prove his innocence? Will they figure out who is trying to frame Matt? Will he ever get his life back?

This is the kind of fiction that I love. Some law elements, medical elements, and a shroud of mystery. The hint of romance didn't hurt either. The story moves quickly and there is that sense of loss when it ends. I wanted to hear more about the future of the characters. This is the first novel I've read like this in the Christian genre. I've always been curious about novels that blend Christian ideals with a criminal storyline. Stress Test did a wonderful job of melding those worlds. Matt must turn to God to find his way out of an overwhelming situation.

In "Stress Test" by Richard L. Mabry, M.D., we meet Dr. Matt Newman. Matt has a wonderful life. He will soon be starting a new job teaching medicine and has a girlfriend who may be the one. Everything changes for Matt one morning when he leaves the hospital ER. Matt is attacked, kidnapped and almost murdered. He manages to escape the kidnappers but is seriously hurt and ends up in the ICU. When he wakes up he learns that he is a prime suspect in a murder investigation. Matt does not know who is after him but he knows he did not kill anyone. His lawyer, Sandra Murray, believes his story. The two start piecing together what happened and try to investigate, but somebody wants Matt dead. They keep coming after him and framing him for other crimes. Matt turns to God to see him through in his time of need. His girlfriend breaks up with him because she does not want anybody to connect the two. Matt goes through some really tough lows but he knows that God is there with him, and so is Sandra. Who is framing Matt and why? Will he and Sandra have a future relationship other than lawyer/client?

"Stress Test" is a fast paced thriller that will keep you guessing. This is a wonderful book showing us how we need to rely on God when we are at our lowest. No matter how bad life may be or who may walk out of our lives, He will always be there for us. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Thomas Nelson.

This book kept me involved, interested, and not wanting to put it down. The characters were well developed. The Christian aspect was mentioned but not a strong element. While it not sweet or preachy, it was weak I felt.
Overall I felt the book was well written and I did not figure out who the bad guy was or why until it was explained. Those were things I liked, along with the story being strong but not gruesome or too scary. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a who-done-it.

As with all of Dr. Mabry's books, very well written. Have read them all and can't wait for the next one to come out.

Love the twists and turns and above all else the underlying and sometimes overt, Christian message.

Picking up this book was probably the last thing I did today. I honestly can't think of one other productive thing I did other than finish it. When was the last time you decided not to sleep in lieu of reading?! Stress Test has the perfect blend of suspense, mystery, and romance while still maintaining a Christian presence. It was so refreshing to read an exciting book that didn't have a lot of racy innuendos and foul language. I can't wait to read more by Richard Mabry!

Dr. Matt Newman was making some changes in his profession, little did he know that those changes would get him in some pretty deep, dangerous trouble! His girlfriend was complaining because of his long hours in his private practice, so he decided to teach medicine and have regular hours. But before he ever got a chance to teach his first class, he was....can't tell, I just can't tell. If anyone of you are familiar with my reviews, you know that I don't like to let anything out that will spoil the surprise. I honestly can't say anything more about this book without doing that!

All you need to know is that once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down. It's a fast-paced suspense thriller with doctors, lawyers, ER emergencies, some very bad men and a little hint of romance. This is a Christian suspense, but not preachy and I think anyone would enjoy it.

If this is the kind of book you like to read, I highly recommend it.
