Richard L. Mabry, M.D. in his new book “Heart Failure book coverHeart Failure” published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Dr. Carrie Markham.

From the back cover:   When her fiancé’s dangerous secrets turn her work upside down, a beautiful doctor must choose between her own safety and the man she loves—and thought she knew.

Dr. Carrie Markham’s heart was broken by the death of her husband two years ago. Now, just as her medical practice is taking off, her fresh engagement to paralegal Adam Davidson seems almost too good to be true . . . until a drive-by shooting leaves Carrie on the floor of his car with glass falling around her.

When he confesses that Adam isn’t his real name and that he fled the witness protection program, Carrie is left with an impossible choice: should she abandon the fiancé she isn’t sure she really knows, or accept his claim of innocence and help him fight back against this faceless menace?

While Carrie struggles to decide whether to follow her heart or her head, the threats against them continue to escalate. Her life—as well as Adam’s—depends on making the right choice . . . and the clock is ticking.

Without a doubt Dr. Mabry really knows how to write a thriller that will grab your attention and then keep it until he decides to let go.  A witness protection program escapee that just wants his life back.  Bad guys that do not want him to have a life at all.  And Carrie, a widow, who really thought she was going to have a quiet life with her new fiance.  These are the ingredients of “Heart Failure”  The reason for the title is that is what it feels we are going to have as we deal with all the action, mystery and suspense as Carrie and Keith do their best to stay alive and bring the bad guys to justice.  “Heart Failure” is a complicated mystery thriller as Carrie and Keith’s lives are 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!
