About the book: 
Miracle Drug
 (Abingdon, September 2015)

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 Thoughts:
I love medical mysteries and Richard Mabry writes them well.  Miracle Drug contains the perfect mix of medicine, mystery, tender romance and faith.  Mabry includes the medical jargon in such a way as to not be over the heads of his readers but sometimes the explanations came off as very elementary.  The characters were two dimensional and the scenarios are believable.  Miracle Drug is an easy and intriguing read that draws you in at the beginning and doesn't let you go until the very end.  While the "who" behind the evil plot was revealed a bit too early, Mabry's story line keeps you reading.  The subject matter is current and causes the reader to constantly ask, "What if" while reading.

*I was given a complimentary copy of the book for the purpose of giving my honest review.  A positive review was not expected.
