Fatal Trauma (Abingdon Press, May 2015)
A gunman who has nothing to lose faces a doctor who could lose it all to prove his innocence.
When Dr. Mark Baker and Nurse Kelly Atkinson are held at the mercy of a dangerous gunman, the lives of every emergency room patient are at stake. At the end of the evening three men are dead. One of them is a police officer who couldn’t be saved despite Mark’s best efforts. The other two are members of the feared Zeta drug cartel.
Though the standoff is over, the killing is not, because when the drug cartel loses its members, revenge is not far behind. Facing an adversary whose desires are dark and efforts are ruthless, Mark finds himself under suspicion as a killer, yet still a potential victim. When he turns to his high school sweetheart, attorney Gwen Woodruff, for help, Kelly helplessly looks on, as she hides her own feelings for the good doctor.
At the height of the conflict, three questions remain: Who is the shooter? Who will the next victim be? And can Mark prove his innocence before the gun turns on him?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Fatal Trauma is another addition to the awesome medical suspense books by Richard Mabry, M.D.! Being a doctor, the medical descriptions of hospital scenes, medicines, medical terms, job responsibilities of those in the medical field are real, and I always feel like I am in the middle of the scenes.
This story starts out with a bang, with a man entering the ER with his brother and a gun, threatening everyone that didn’t help save his brothers life he would kill them. Dr. Mark Baker’ main concern was Nurse Kelly Atkinson, especially since he had dated her and was attracted to her. But was this brother already dead? And the police shows up and the scene was not a pretty one. There are many twists and turns in this story, a lot going on that makes you wonder just how many people are running with the bad guys, to many people are losing their lives. The police need to get to the bottom of this before anyone else gets hurt or loses their lives. And that’s all I will say about this book! Because its much more fun digging in to at book like this not knowing a thing about what is going on. And you know with Dr. Mabry, its going to be a killer read!
