Richard L. Mabry, M.D. in his new book “Fatal Trauma book coverFatal Trauma” published by Abingdon Press takes us into the life of Dr. Mark Baker.

From the back cover:   A Gunman who has nothing to lose faces a doctor who could lose it all

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?

I think being in the ER is cause for enough excitement. However Dr. Mabry takes a night in the ER and escalates it from page one. There is a gunman and not only holds them hostage but wants Dr. Baker to help his partner who has been gun shot. From here it just takes off, proving that Dr. Mabry really knows how to write a thriller that will grab your attention and then keep it until he decides to let go. I think “Fatal Trauma” is Dr. Mabry’s best medical thriller to date. Action, mystery and suspense these are the ingredients of “Fatal Trauma”. Dr. Mabry has provided us a complicated mystery thriller as Mark’s life is 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!
