Richard L. Mabry, M.D. in his new book “stress test book coverStress Test” published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Dr. Matt Newman.


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.

May I never have a stress test close to what Dr. Matt Newman has to take.  Wow, he is kidnapped, escapes being murdered, winds up in a hospital and is then, himself, accused of murder.  How much worse can it get?  Well the people who kidnapped and want to kill him still want to and they keep framing him for other murders.  Now it is up to Sandra, his lawyer, and him to find out what is going on before he winds up dead.  Law, medicine and mystery it doesn’t get any better than this.  “Stress Test” is a complicated mystery thriller as Matt’s life in danger practically from page one.  Turn off the TV, unplug the computer, put aside the housework you are not going to want to do anything but read this book until the end and enjoy yourself in the process.  Dr. Mabry has written another exciting book that most certainly is a huge winner!
