Critical Condition by Richard L. Mabry
Dr. Frasier couldn’t save the gunshot victim on her front lawn. Now she’s fighting for her own life.
It began as a quiet dinner party honoring Dr. Shannon Frasier’s colleague, but became a nightmare when a man was shot on her lawn, reviving emotions from a similar episode a decade ago. Then a midnight call from her sister, Megan, causes Shannon to fear that her sister is on drugs again.
Her “almost-fiancé” Dr. Mark Gilbert’s support only adds to Shannon’s feelings of guilt, since she can’t bring herself to fully commit to him. She turns for help to her pastor-father, only to learn that he’s just been diagnosed with leukemia.
Shannon thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then the late-night, threatening phone calls begin, the rough voice asking, “What did he say before he died?”
With everything around her in a critical state, simply staying alive will require all the resources and focus Shannon has.

About The Author

Once you turn the first page of this fast paced, riveting, book you are going to be hooked. It begins with Dr. Shannon Frasier and her young boyfriend. What happened that night haunts the career of this doctor for years to come?
Once we enter the story, we hear a noise in the dark, unsure of what is happening; we head to the kitchen, only to find a gun pointed at us. Yes this is actually a preview of what is about to happen throughout this story. There is a web of suspicion over everyone, and you find yourself wondering who are the bad guys here. Wow!!
Even being a Preacher’s child doesn’t always help you to make the right decisions, and we find that those little seeds planted young, seem to come back at the right time. God is with they always, not just when danger appears, and the people who are put on their path, are not there by chance.
We do find these characters interfering with the murder/robbery investigation and although I would probably make some of the same mistakes they did, they could have ended up in jail.
Come along for another of Dr. Mabry’s reads, I know I wasn’t disappointed, and felt that I had become a part of the Fraizer family. I also enjoyed that there was an epilogue at the end of the book. Don’t miss this one, especially if you love mysteries!
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
