Medical Mystery by Richard L. Mabry, M.D. (novella)

My thoughts:
This is a very short read. A novella of 90 pages. The reader shouldn't let the length be a turn-off on reading this medical mystery because it is worth the short time you'll spend reading it.

Retired physician, Richard L. Mabry, M.D. has written numerous full length books and a handful of novellas. Each tells a tale with a gold thread of accurate medical finesse woven throughout.

There is a lot packed into the 90 pages Mabry uses to solve this mystery. Not only is there a mysterious medical case, there is also a criminal case. But Mabry doesn't stop there with the excitement. As the book ends, we find there is another dastardly deed waiting to happen.

I think readers will enjoy picking up this novella and having a quick read.

About the book: When her phone rang, Diane Macklin wondered what her sister wanted now. Then, she heard that their mother was in the Emergency Room with a heart problem.

The doctor tending to her mother was Dr. Joe Adams, who was far from Diane’s idea of the family doctor. He had been alone since his first wife had died, and was apparently heaven-sent as a mate for Diane, if she could only get past the trauma of her previous near-miss at the altar.

The heart problem was hard to solve initially, the subsequent difficulty turned out to be murder, and affected the lives of both Diane and Joe.
