Life is hard enough for Dr. Sarah Gordon. Eight months
ago she lost her husband and two-year-old daughter in a
car accident. Now someone is harassing her: late night
hang-ups on phone calls, a prowler in her yard and a fire
in her garage. It isn't until the fire that Sarah gets
the police involved. Detective Bill Larsen is assigned to
investigate the case, because the deputy fire chief
declares it arson. When Bill asks Sarah to come down to
the police station for questioning, she calls her late
husband's best friend and attorney, Kyle Andrews, to go
As the harassment escalates, Bill and Kyle keep close
tabs on Sarah. Their interest in this case grows to be
more personal than professional. Both men begin vying for
the attention of this widowed ER doctor. Sarah doesn't
need that added stress in her life right now. She just
wants the person that is harassing her found and brought
to justice. With every lead Bill gets culminating in a
dead end, will that ever happen?
MEDICAL JUDGEMENT is a masterfully written, inspirational
medical thriller. Dr. Richard L. Mabry certainly gets the
medical facts right and shares great insight into
people's emotional and mental states. Sarah does a lot of
quiet soul-searching throughout the pages. She is angry
with God for all the things that have recently happened
in her life. She doesn't feel she can trust anyone and
suspects even those who are trying to help her. Other
supporting characters share some of the internal battles
they are fighting.
MEDICAL JUDGEMENT is a story about the
baggage we carry through life, rather than giving it all
to God. We can't see the future, but we need to know and
trust that God is in control. Dr. Mabry's characters are
well-developed, the plot is fast-paced and the storyline
will keep you turning pages to the end, where there are
quite a few very surprising twists with the outcome.
Don't miss this great thriller!

ExcerptAcrid smoke assaulting her nostrils brought Dr. Sarah
Gordon awake. Was the noise downstairs real, or was it a
part of a dream? No matter. The smoke was real. Her house
was on fire.
Her first impulse was to make sure Jenny was safe. But
first, she needed to wake Harry. Sarah reached to her
left across the king-size bed, but when her hand touched
a bare pillow she realized her husband wasn’t there. He
was dead. He’d been dead for eight months now. So had her
daughter. Sarah was alone… in a burning house.
Or was she alone? Had she really heard a noise? Was
someone down there, waiting for her to come down those
stairs? She couldn’t stay up here and burn to death,
though. What should she do? Rules and admonitions, read
or heard long ago and almost forgotten, swirled through
her mind. Sarah stopped and forced herself to think
logically, just as she would when faced with a problem in
the emergency room.
She threw on a robe, shoved her feet into slippers,
grabbed her cell phone and in a few strides covered the
distance to the door leading from her bedroom into the
hall. Feel the door. If it’s hot, find some other way
