Critical Condition Book Review

I have a good medical drama for you today called Critical Condition written by Richard L. Mabry, M.D.

Dr. Frasier couldn’t save the gunshot victim on her front lawn. Now she’s fighting for her own life. 
It began as a quiet dinner party honoring Dr. Shannon Frasier’s colleague, but became a nightmare when a man was shot on her lawn, reviving emotions from a similar episode a decade ago. Then a midnight call from her sister, Megan, causes Shannon to fear that her sister is on drugs again. 
Her “almost-fiancé” Dr. Mark Gilbert’s support only adds to Shannon’s feelings of guilt, since she can’t bring herself to fully commit to him. She turns for help to her pastor-father, only to learn that he’s just been diagnosed with leukemia. 
Shannon thought it couldn’t get any worse. Then the late-night, threatening phone calls begin, the rough voice asking, “What did he say before he died?” 
With everything around her in a critical state, simply staying alive will require all the resources and focus Shannon has.
It seems like tragedy likes to come in pairs, or so it seems in this story. Shannon has had 2 men shot in front of her or near her in her short life and she wonders why.

Also, because of this, it's hard for her to get close with anyone because she fears being left alone again, so she tends to remain aloft but not because she really wants to. But, this time the man in her yard leaves her with a series of numbers to solve.

I have found that greed can do many things to people. It can change even your very own family members if you are not careful. When all is said and done, it's one man's thirst for money that is the undoing of him and a few around him.

Hopefully, Shannon will come out of this a much stronger person and began to heal and let people in because no person can stay by themselves forever. We all need comfort and love, two things that Shannon has denied herself. It's love that gets you thru the rough patches and without it, you will have a longer haul than necessary.

Happy Reading!
