Dr. Sarah Gordon lost her husband and daughter. Now she’s about to lose her life.

After losing the two people she loved the most, Sarah Gordon doesn’t think life could get worse. But, after a fire in her garage is ruled an arson, she begins to realize someone is after her—and that person wants to see her dead. But first, they want to see her suffer.

Her late husband’s best friend, Kyle Andrews, and a recovering alcoholic detective, Bill Larson, are trying to solve the mystery before it’s too late, and they’re both trying to win her heart, too. Not only does Sarah feel torn between two men, she also feels as though she cannot trust anyone.

With creepy threats that become more and more sinister, Sarah finds herself in constant fear, but even the best home alarm technology won’t protect her. Who is doing this, and why are they after her?

I always enjoy Dr. Richard Mabry's novels and this one is his best yet. Medical Judgment gripped me from the opening pages and I was loath to set it aside for such trivial pursuits as sleeping and working. Dr. Sarah Gordon's grief over the tragic loss of her husband and young daughter is heartbreakingly real, and the compassion I felt for her only increased with the attacks and threats she faced. Mabry skillfully paces the events, keeping both Sarah and the reader on high alert. The flow of the story presents multiple characters as plausible suspects who could be "hiding in plain sight," thwarting any efforts to identify the perpetrator as well as the motive behind the attacks. Possibilities of romance occasionally stir throughout the story but Mabry wisely keeps it low-key, as the threats even cause Sarah to question her trust in her closest protectors. Intriguing and satisfying, Medical Judgment is a must for your summer reading list.

Just what the doctor ordered: heart-thumping suspense and intrigue, courtesy of Richard Mabry’s new medical drama, Medical Judgment. Someone is after Dr. Sarah Gordon. They’ve stalked her and set a fire at her home. Trying to recover from the traumatic deaths of her husband and infant daughter is tough enough, but she has no idea what will come next. As the threats on her life continue to escalate, so do the questions: Who is doing this? Why are they after her? And with her only help being unreliable suitors in competition with each other, whom can she really trust?
