Overview

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



Dr. Sara Miles’ teenage patient is on the brink of death from an overwhelming, highly resistant infection with Staph luciferus, known to doctors as “the killer.” Only an experimental antibiotic, developed and administered by Sara’s ex-husband can save the girl's life.



But potentially lethal effects from the drug send Sara and her colleague, Dr. Rip Pearson, on a hunt for hidden critical data that will let them reverse the effects before it’s too late. What is the missing puzzle piece? And who is hiding it?




"Lethal Remedy boasts a gripping medical plot that only an insider could write so believably… Dr. Mabry takes his knowledge of the medical profession, combines it with a ticking clock, and gives the reader a problem we'd all be terrified to face. What more could the reader of a good medical suspense ask for?" —Susan Sleeman, author of Behind The Badge and The Justice Agency series



"Lethal Remedy is the perfect cure for boredom: a first-rate medical thriller with humor, engaging characters, and realism that only a seasoned doctor could bring to the story." --Rick Acker, author of When the Devil Whistles and Blood Brothers

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
One of Dr. Sara Miles's patients, a teenage girl, is dying from a bacterial infection highly resistant to antibiotics. Hope comes in the form of Sara's ex-husband, Dr. Jack Ingersoll, who believes he has discovered a miracle cure. Sara administers the drug to her patient, and the girl miraculously recovers and goes home. But she returns to the hospital a week later, suffering from paralysis. Now it is up to Sara and her colleague Dr. John Ramsey to beat the clock and reverse the effects of this lethal remedy. VERDICT Mabry's fourth series title (after Diagnosis Death) is a fast-paced, intricately plotted page-turner that mixes a healthy dose of suspense and faith. Patrons who enjoy other inspirational medical thrillers like Candace Calvert's "Mercy Hospital" series (Code Triage) will find this the perfect antidote to boredom.

    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

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

    Staphylococcus luciferus - also known as the Killer by those in the medical community. This is the super bug of all because there is no known drug to treat it. Those who come down with the diagnosis will die unless a cure is found.

    Dr. Jack Ingersol is just the man! In his recent study into antibiotics, he believes he has discovered the miracle drug, known as Jandramycin named after the pharmaceutical Jack works for Jandra Pharamceuticals, when administered for 10 days intravenously, the patient recovers with no side effects. Now this will not only be the drug that saves lives but will save the career of Dr. Jack Ingersol as well as his struggle pharmaceutical company from ruin.

    Dr. John Ramsey has been a doctor for forty years, and has mentored many including Dr. Sara Miles, the ex-wife of Jack Ingersol in his career. Struggling himself to find a purpose in life since losing his wife, he believes he needs to return to being a doctor again and save lives. What he doesn't expect is to be saving not only his own but the life of his fellow colleagues including Sara Miles.

    When Sara begins treatment of one of her patients a young teen girl named Chelsea with Jandramycin whose dying from the Killer infection.She soon is well to go home after being at death's door. When Chelsea shows up with paralysis weeks later, Sara soon discovers that she may have just administered a lethal remedy instead.

    In the medical suspense thriller, Lethal Remedy by Richard L. Mabry, MD, the reader is taken into the dark world of the clinical trials for a pharmaceutical company that will stop at nothing to make sure this drug is approved and ready for sale. I LOVED this book and being a fan of medical mysteries, this one had me on the edge of my seat and questioned just how safe are the drugs we take on faith today. What would happen if this occurred today? I rate this one a hands down 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read more by Richard Mabry in the Prescription for Trouble series. I received this Kindle edition compliments of Abingdon Press and NetGalley for my honest review.

    I was so excited when I was able to get this book the other month. This is a new author that I have stumbled across starting with the first book in this series and I just finished number four today and I loved it!
    This book does move at a face pace but, it is easy to follow along.  From what I understand there was not suppose to be a book four in this series and I am hoping that there just may be a book five!

    Dr. Sara Miles has a patient who has contracted a killer infection. Her patient is going to die no matter what is tried.

    Sara ex-husband, Jack is doing some clinical trials on a drug, Jandramycinm that may reverse the effects of this killer infection.  

    In the course of things, Sara and a colleague Dr. Rip Pearson, find out that even though this drug in the trials has a 100% cure rate some people are developing serious side effects and even fatal a few weeks after being freed from this infection.

    Someone does not want Sara and RIP nosing around about this drug and asking questions. The question is who does not want them to find out the truth?

    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.

    Another Great Thriller from Dr. Mabry

    Lethal Remedy by Dr. Richard L. Mabry

    Ok, so this new drug can cure a deadly staph infection, one even worse than MRSA, and it is perfectly safe, no side effects, just all good stuff? That should throw a red flag right there! Yet Jandra Pharmaceutical was using Dr. Ingersol to convince Doctors and patients that this experimental drug is the wonder drug of all times. But someone somewhere is not telling all, and Dr. Rip Pearson is determined to find some answers. As I was reading the book I had to wonder if things like this happen today. The way people are always trying to get ahead and make the big money, you have to wonder. Is it all about the patient or all about the money?

    Being a huge fan of Dr. Mabry's books, I was anxious to read this forth book in the Prescription for Trouble Series. Though Lethal Remedy was a lighter read than the other three books, I was still glued to the pages until the last word! Again, he created a cast of characters that were unique and played their part so well to make the book a fast-paced, easy read enjoyable thriller. Throughout the book was the big question of whodoneit. And Dr. Ingersol's character was very well written but he was a jerk! It sure wouldn't do for him to be my Doctor! And the way it all ended was interesting, and good old doc Ingersol wasn't as great as he wanted people to believe he was. But you need to read the book to find out all about that! And I can't leave out the way the author writes the faith of his characters into the story, not so it jumps out of the book at you, but so we can see Christ in the lives of the characters. I appreciate the way God is using Dr Mabry to spread the gospel to a group of people that may not hear it otherwise.

    I'm glad Abingdon Press and Dr Mabry decided to add a fourth book to this series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lethal Remedy and highly recommend it to anyone who likes medical fiction, thrillers, mystery and just a good book to read!

    I rec'd this book from the publisher Harvest House through F.I.R.S.T. WildCard Tours. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

    Great Fast Read

    Great fast read! Keeps your attention right to the end...including the epilogue!
    There is a new staph, deadlier than MRSA attacking the world, and Dr Sara Miles has a young teenage girl who has it. She knows the only way to get the drug that will give the girl her life back, is to go to her former husband Dr Jack Ingersol.
    Dr Ingersol appears to be selling his soul to the devil in the name of the drug company Jandra Pharmaceutical. What a tangled web comes to light thoughout this book. You won't be able to put this book down, there are shootings, car crashes, explosions, and more. The company will stop at nothing to get the FDA approval.
    When Dr John Ramsey decides to return to work after the death of his beloved wife, he gets stuck by a needle, and he gets the horrible deadly staph infection. His friends rally around him and the great minds and the power of prayer, set about to find a alternate drug to counter act the side effects of the wonder drug.
    I highly recommend this Christian mystery, you won't regret it!

    I received this book from the Publisher Abingdon Press, and was not required to give a positive review.
