    This is the 4th in the Prescription for Trouble series by Dr. Ri

    This is the 4th in the Prescription for Trouble series by Dr. Richard Mabry. The series shows us his diversity. He maintained his easy to read, fast paced, clean, Christian writing style without being preachy. You will have suspense, mystery and romance without gory death or intimate love scenes. In Lethal Remedy, Dr. Mabry gives us a medical thriller that will keep readers on the edge of our seats.

    People are dying from Staphylococcus luciferus worldwide. A very fitting name for a bacteria known as "The Killer". Dr. Jack Ingersoll and Jandra Pharmaceuticals have an experimental antibiotic that would kill it after 10 days of intravenous Jandramycin.

    Dr. Sara Miles have a teenage patient dying of Staph luciferus. Should she try the experimental drug on her patient? She have no other alternative and Jandramycin worked. No known side effects and a 100% success rate so far in the studies. A few weeks after the treatment, teenage patient and some others treated with the same "wonder drug" are back showing another serious illness going on. Are there late side effects to the drug that are being kept secret? How far are the people rooting for Jandramycin's approval going to do to get it approved? Will greed eventually trump over health in the medical field?

    A very interesting medical mystery!!

    I received a copy of this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I love medical mysteries, so when I saw this book listed on NetGalley I knew I had to read it. I wasn't aware at that time that this was the fourth book in a series (Prescription for Trouble) but luckily it can be read as a stand alone as well.

    From Goodreads: "What happens when the race to stop a lethal bacteria becomes a race to stop a killer?"

    That sentence alone was enough to interest me in this book! Intriguing, no? I am very happy to say that Dr. Richard Mabry did not disappoint! This is a very fast paced medical mystery, with characters who you can relate to and care about. The author keeps you guessing until the end, trying to figure out who is involved and who isn't in this globe spanning conspiracy.

    The subject matter was very interesting as you hear all the time about drug companies putting so much money into developing new drugs in the cut throat industry of pharmaceutical research. One of the reasons I really enjoyed reading this thriller is because you can actually imagine this scenario occurring in real life, and that is definitely scary!!

    The book moved along at a quick pace and there was good character growth, especially in the female MC, Dr. Sara Miles, who learns to trust again after a bitter divorce and the loss of a child, and Dr. John Ramsey, who finally starts to move on after the death of his wife. There were a few side plots that I think the book could have done without as they didn't really add anything to the story, but nothing that detracted from my ability to enjoy the book. I liked the Christian tone of the book as well.

    All in all, I thought this was a very interesting book, and I look forward to going back and reading the first three books in the series :D

    Great series

    This is a great series I would like to see old characters continued and new ones brought in. I love that fact that it is different from most books and it's based on Doctors. I hope the author continues to write for this series.

    Prescription by Murder

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

    Dr. Richard Mabry¿s book, Lethal Remedy, is a suspense that includes high-level managerial participants, with one anonymous snitch. A vaccine, Jandramyacin, is claimed to be the miracle cure for Staph luciferus, a world-wide epidemic that has killed hundreds around the world. This book has been my favorite so far based on the number of scenarios, the conflicting participants, and how quickly the circumstances change. It¿s fast-paced and multi-leveled from the first page to the last.

    Richard shows how money, greed, and status can become center stage instead of healing people, and that some people are willing to kill to get it all! Secrets, mysterious testing, and missing data are the impetus of distrust between some of the doctors and the pharmaceutical companies. As the international convention is convening, will the crucial missing methodology puzzle piece that creates the intensity of the lethal side effects data be exposed?

    The story makes one wonder how much of this goes on today in the medical world. Can we trust the drug companies and their employees? How about our own doctor? Is he/she really looking out for our best interests, or are money, power and prestige driving the use of certain medications? Find out at the end what the author¿s experience has been.

    The gentle romance took some of the intensity off the situation, and I was surprised with the outcome of the relationships!

    The faith of several of the characters made a huge impact on the end results. I was surprised with who was willing to put prayer to the test.

    Special thanks to Julie Dowd (Abingdon Press) for sending me a review copy. No monetary compensation was exchanged.
