Lethal Remedy: A Book Review

About The Book:

What happens when the race to stop a lethal bacteria becomes a race to stop a killer? 

Dr. Sara Miles’ teenage patient is on the brink of death from an overwhelming, highly resistant infection with Staph luciferus, known to doctors as “the killer.” Only an experimental antibiotic, developed and administered by Sara’s ex-husband can save the girl's life.

But potentially lethal effects from the drug send Sara and her colleague, Dr. Rip Pearson, on a hunt for hidden critical data that will let them reverse the effects before it’s too late. What is the missing puzzle piece? And who is hiding it?

About The Author:

Richard L. Mabry, M.D. is a retired physician and medical school professor who achieved worldwide recognition as a writer, speaker, and teacher before turning his talents to non-medical writing after his retirement. He is the author of Code Blue and Medical Error, the first two novels in The Prescription for Trouble series, one non-fiction book, and his inspirational pieces have appeared in numerous periodicals.  He and his wife, Kay, live in North Texas.  Visit Dr. Mabry at his website:

My Review:

When you combine a medical mystery with well developed characters and an engaging, well written novel, you have a hit on your hands. This is what Richard L. Mabry, M.D. has done with Lethal Remedy. You will be drawn into the world of superbugs and experimental medicine, and find humor and even some romance along the way. Although it is very obvious that Mabry is using his medical experience to write the novel, it is not done in an overwhelming manner. There is some use of medical terms but all are explained so the reader is not lost. You will be grabbed into this medical mystery from the first chapter and will be guessing "whodoneit" right until the end! I am quickly finding another favorite author in Richard L. Mabry, M.D. and am definitely going back to read the first book in this series, Code Blue (look for a review soon). Although Lethal Remedy is part of a series, it can also act as a stand-alone title, without the reader becoming confused or lost when there are references to past situations.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

Lethal Remedy by Richard L. Mabry, M.D. will be released in October 2011
