Review: Critical Condition by Richard Mabry


About the book:
Dr. Frasier couldn't save the gunshot victim on her front lawn. Now she's fighting for her own life.

It began as a quiet dinner party honoring Dr. Shannon Frasier's colleague, but became a nightmare when a man was shot on her lawn, reviving emotions from a similar episode a decade ago. Then a midnight call from her sister, Megan, causes Shannon to fear that her sister is on drugs again.

Her "almost-fiancé" Dr. Mark Gilbert's support only adds to Shannon's feelings of guilt, since she can't bring herself to fully commit to him. She turns for help to her pastor-father, only to learn that he's just been diagnosed with leukemia.

Shannon thought it couldn't get any worse. Then the late-night, threatening phone calls begin, the rough voice asking, "What did he say before he died?"

With everything around her in a critical state, simply staying alive will require all the resources and focus Shannon has.

My thoughts:


Critical Condition is the fourth book I've read by this author and I enjoyed it! I thought the book started off great and the ending was also very good.

There were times in the story that I felt things didn't flow that well, at least to me, and I think part of that was due to some chapters having a lot of breaks/scene changes. Also, there were times the detectives' actions felt unrealistic to me.

For the most part, I really liked the medical aspect to Critical Condition and it was great how both of the main characters were doctors. The romance story was good, because I wasn't sure what was going to happen in the end.

Overall, I liked Critical Condition. It was an enjoyable read and, if you like mysteries with some medical aspects, you might enjoy this book.
