Stress Test by Richard Mabry, and win a Nook HD

They may not have enough evidence to convict him, but they have enough to ruin his life.Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left his last shift in the ER have no such plans-they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt's only thought is escape. He does so, 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. 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 murderer 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.

My review:
    Richard Mabry is not a new author to me. He has written 4 books previous to writing this one, and I enjoyed each one that I read. With this book, he has changed publishers and I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but he hit one out of the stadium with this book. If his others had 4 star ratings, this one would get 10. Its that good.

  I loved this book and enjoyed every page of it. Mabry came up with a very likable main character and wove a teriffic plot around him. There was a lot of suspense in the book, and I never knew what was going to happen next. It wasn't very predictable, which is great. And though this is a great suspense novel, it can definitely be filed under Christian. No cursing or inappropriate content in itm which is not surprising after reading the author's other books.

  Mabry writes medical suspense novels, so his books are always set around hospitals and his main characters are always in the medical profession, but he does a tremendous job of using laymen's terms for medical procedures and makes the hospital and medical stuff interesting and easy to understand.

  This is by far his best book yet, and that is not to diminsh his others. He has just outdone himself with this one, and I can't wait to see what else he has in store.
