Medical Judgement by Harry Kraus, MD (Review)

  • Paperback: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Abingdon Press (May 17, 2016)
  • ISBN-13: 978-1630881207

  • Someone is after Dr. Sarah Gordon. They’ve stalked her and set a fire at her home. Trying to recover from the traumatic deaths of her husband and infant daughter is tough enough, but she has no idea what will come next. Her late husband’s best friend and a recovering alcoholic detective are trying to solve the mystery before it’s too late, but both appear to be vying for her affection as well. Sarah finds herself in constant fear as the process plays out.

    As the threats on her life continue to escalate, so do the questions: Who is doing this? Why are they after her? And with her only help being unreliable suitors in competition with each other, whom can she really trust?

    My Review:

    This was an okay Christian mystery/suspense book. I did not enjoy it as much as some of his previous books. This was  a medical drama only in the fact the main character Dr. Sarah Gordon is an ER doctor. The faith element is well developed. I was kept guessing until the end on who was stalking her. Dr. Gordon has two different possible love interests. One is her recently deceased husband's best friend and the other a detective. The romance could have been more developed. There was also a lot of repetition throughout the book like her husband being dead eight months. My favorite series of his is the Code Blue series.

    I'm a retired physician who is now writing. I also stay busy being a husband and grandfather, working on my golf game, and doing the hundred-and-one other things that retired people do.

    I got into non-medical writing after the death of my first wife with my book, THE TENDER SCAR: LIFE AFTER THE DEATH OF A SPOUSE. I'm gratified that it continues to help those who have lost a loved one.

    From that point, I moved into writing fiction. Thus far I've had seven novels of medical suspense published: CODE BLUE, MEDICAL ERROR, DIAGNOSIS DEATH, and LETHAL REMEDY were the first four. The second and third books listed were named finalists for the ACFW Carol Award and Romantic Times' Best Inspirational Novel respectively, and LETHAL REMEDY won the Selah Award.

    Then came STRESS TEST (also a finalist for Romantic Times' Best Inspirational Novel), HEART FAILURE, CRITICAL CONDITION, FATAL TRAUMA, and my latest, MIRACLE DRUG (which made the CBA bestseller list). I've also self-published a novella, RX MURDER, which is currently available for Kindle and in hard copy.
