Book Review: Miracle Drug

29 Oct

Miracle-DrugOvercoming these odds will take more than a miracle drug—it will take a miracle.

The infection wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. The treatment was supposed to take care of it, but it didn’t. Then Dr. Josh Pearson discovers why—his patients, including the former President of the United States, have been dosed with a different strain of the original virus, one that is universally fatal. The only chance for survival is treatment with an experimental drug, but the manufacturer might already have discarded its supply.

As if treating the President of the United States isn’t stressful enough, the situation goes from bad to worse when Rachel Moore, a nurse Josh is falling in love with, falls ill. With the nation’s eyes on him, Josh must pull off a miracle to save a man who holds a good deal of power and the woman who holds his heart.

My Impressions:

Richard Mabry will have you turning the pages to keep up with the twisting action in Miracle Drug. This medical drama left me tense as I joined with the characters to find a miracle cure for a rare and deadly bacterial infection. And if that’t not enough, the struggle to survive is complicated by hired killers! Miracle Drug is another winner by Mabry.

Josh Pearson is surprised to find himself charged with the care of former President David Madison.  But a serious medical emergency turns deadly as Madison and nurse Rachel Moore are infected with the universally fatal Bacillus decimus. As Josh fights time, bureaucratic red-tape, and an elusive supply of an experimental antibiotic, he finds his efforts challenged by the threat of a killer determined to remove Madison from the international stage.

Miracle Drug left me holding my breath! I could feel my shoulders tense as I entered into the engrossing plot. The race against the clock and the murder conspiracy had me rooting for Josh and the other medical personnel while suspecting any and all involved with President Madison. The twists and turns kept me on my toes and the pages flying. Mabry also includes a strong faith message of relying on and trusting in God no matter the circumstances and the impact that has on those around us. The characters’ varying levels of belief and resulting attitudes are realistically portrayed.

A quick read, Miracle Drug is just what the doctor ordered for fans of medical suspense.
