As one who loves reading mystery, suspense, intrigue, and things concerning medical issues, Dr. Richard Mabry has certainly done his job. But, as a Christian, I tend to choose books that are Christ centered, and among all of the other incredible twists and turns, he has the underlying subject of faith – to me, this book is a definite winning amalgam.
Dr. Shannon Frasier and her sister, Megan, are preachers kids. Even though they both grew up in a very loving household full of faith, they both struggle with life issues in their own way rather than leaning on the Lord as their parents had taught them.
Megan ended up with a lifestyle full of wrong choices and even though she is trying to turn her life around, she finds herself mixed up in a drama far beyond anything we could imagine. Her big sister, Shannon, came to her rescue once again and found herself sucked into the vortex of events that looked as though there would be no way out.
Shannon could not believe it when a series of circumstances began that brought back the horror she had experienced when her fiance had died in her arms from a gun shot wounds when she was just in medical school. She determined in her mind that she would help people to live, felt it was her mission in life to keep people from dying. Now, people were dying, guns were involved, and somehow her sister (and then herself) seemed to be involved as well.
Dr. Mabry intertwines a growing faith in God, true seeking Him for strength to overcome huge obstacles into a story full of page turning conundrum of “whodunit” – it is very hard to put this book down.
I have now read quite a number of books by this amazing author, and I highly recommend it to all. Use it as a ministry tool as well. Have some friends, neighbors, that love to read, but who are not Christians? There are great study guides at the end for group discussions.
You will find yourselves rooting for Shannon and Megan, praying along with them for answers and guidance to get them through. As they find their way back to their own faith issues, you will be rejoicing along with them – even though circumstances still remain extremely grim and you have no idea how things will end. Oh, I’m not going to tell you – this you must read for yourselves.
Enjoy and be blessed!
