This review is for the book "Fatal Trauma" by Richard L. Mabry. This is the second book by Mabry that I have read and I really enjoyed both books. This story begins with excitement and does not slow down. In the beginning of the book, a dangerous gunman enters the hospital where Mark and Kelly are working. He takes Kelly hostage and insists that someone treat his brother. Acting quickly, Mark and Kelly go to work, and a shoot-out ensues involving a hospital security guard. Unfortunately it turns out that the two brothers are part of a drug cartel from Mexico. Suddenly Mark, Kelly, and all others who were present in that situation are targets. The rest of the book follows their story of trying to stay alive and figure out how to get all the right people into police custody.
The only qualm I have about the whole book is this random relationship between Mark and his ex-girlfriend from high school, Gwen. He brings in Gwen as his lawyer, and suddenly thinks there may be some chance of kindling a romance between the two of them, while he is also going back and forth between two other ladies. I felt that bringing in Gwen as another love interest was unnecessary and did not really add to the plot of the book. Other than that I loved the story and the characters. I want to read more from Mabry.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
Can Mark find out who the shooter is before he becomes the next victim? You won't want to miss the suspense in Richard Mabry's new book, Fatal Trauma. 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.
