See how things were going to play out.Matt is a great main character. He’s down-to-earth and generally a decent person. The reader shares his disbelief that someone would want to kidnap him – and kill him. While reading, my mind went through all sorts of scenarios that could explain it, but I just couldn’t [...]

    3. 4.4 -- I read this book in less than a day. The suspense started on the second page, so the story grabbed my interest from the start. There wasn't much suspense, but I didn't want to put the book down because it was interesting. I also really liked the main character and his lawyer. This was the first book I've read by Mr. Mabry, but I'll be reading more.


    4. What would you do if while walking to your car after a long night at work, you suddenly found yourself being beaten and thrown in the trunk of your own car?

    10. I have all Dr Mabry's books and never hesitate to buy his latest. I'm never disappointed. He writes medical thrillers in the same vein as Robin Cook and Michael Palmer, but without any language and with the wonderful and welcome addition of Christian values.Dr. Matt Newman walks out of the hospital after a busy shift one night and is kidnapped, thrown into the trunk of his car and driven off to be murdered.

    12. Dr. Matt Newman was making some changes in his profession, little did he know that those changes would get him in some pretty deep, dangerous trouble! His girlfriend was complaining because of his long hours in his private practice, so he decided to teach medicine and have regular hours. But before he ever got a chance to teach his first class, he wasn’t tell, I just can’t tell. If anyone of you are familiar with my reviews, you know that I don’t like to let anything out that will spoil th [...]


    13. A not quite believable medical-legal Christian thriller involving a physician, Matt Newman with really bad luck. (Especially funny for me, as my nephew shares his name). I like the attorney who takes his case although the plot development between the two characters is a bit predictable. Matt's many close calls result in a deepening faith. Will future books contain a future for Matt, his brother the missionary & Sandra, the attorney? I will watch for the continued saga. NOTE - I listened to t [...]


    14. Stress Test captured my attention from the start and wouldn’t let go. It’s the first title I’ve read by Richard Mabry and I’m looking forward to reading more by this talented author in the future. Highly recommended for fans of medical romance and medical suspense who haven’t already had the pleasure of reading it. And yes, I’m a little late to the review party, as this title was released a year ago, and there’s already a more recent title available from this author (Heart Failure) [...]

    21. I’ve read other of Richard Mabry’s books and I’m always left with knowing that I’ve read a great book, one that was fast paced, centered on Christ and just enough suspense to keep me turning page after page (or flipping pages if you read on a Kindle Fire!). Stress Test was, I think, his best so far – this book gripped me from the first page, literally and had me wondering whodunit through the whole thing, just when I thought I knew who was behind things another twist was thrown and I s [...]

He seeks legal assistance from Sandra Murray. Reeling from the kidnapping and trying to recover his life, Matt must try to maintain his innocence despite the evidence stacked against him.Mabry succeeds eluding the reader regarding why Matt has been kidnapped and framed of murder.

    24.

    25. Stress Test by Richard L. Mabry, M.D. was a suspenseful and intriguing novel that left me tied to the pages throughout the entire story. The plot was very interesting and included many plot twists, dangerous situations, and medical emergencies. I enjoyed getting an inside look into the interworking of a emergency room from the perspective of a doctor -Matt Newman. Because he had a medical student shadowing him, many of the questions I had about working in a emergency answered in the interactions [...]


    26. Now I see why this book is called Stress Test because it was stressful to read! Richard Mabry had me in suspense the entire book until the very end. I could not stop reading until the mystery was solved and even then, it completely blew me away.In retrospect, I can see the foreshadowing of what happened in the end but I had no clue as I was reading why Dr. Matt Newman was being targeted because there appeared to be no motive. Usually I have some indication but in this case I saw no connection; t [...]


    27. Stress Test is a fast-paced read that I devoured in a single sitting. The novel contains all the elements I most enjoy in a book - scenes of suspense, medical emergencies, and characters ensnared in the criminal justice system. As such, I was thoroughly entertained with this engaging story! The characters are well-developed in a manner appropriate for a supsense book, and the author fleshes them out just enough to allow readers to care about the characters without slowing down the pace of the st [...]


    28. Good book. I've not read many books in this category lately because they are generally quite unwholesome. Yeah, I'm much pickier than I've ever been when it comes to what I read. This book is fast paced, has suspense and thankfully so very little romance, although there is the attraction emotionally and physically between some of the characters. It's not the focus and is mentioned briefly here and there. I think the book is good. Admittedly there is quite a bit of medical terminology and medical [...]
