Miracle Drug by Richard Mabry (Review)

  • Paperback: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Abingdon Press (September 15, 2015)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1630881184

  • Overcoming 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 Review:

    This was an okay medical themed Christian fiction mystery/suspense book. The premise of the plot was interesting. SPOILER ALERT: I felt like the climax of the plot came way too early. The rest of the book was finding out who was behind getting the President and Rachel sick and why. END
    The book moved slower than expected for a mystery/suspense book until the end which was explosive. Some of the characters needed more development. I did like the relationship between Josh and Rachel. The bad guy was easy to guess and a twist at the end did not fit the book. Overall it was not the best medical thriller by this writer. I loved his Prescription for Trouble series. I look forward to seeing what he writes next.
