Overcoming these odds will take more than a miracle drug—it will take a miracle.

The infection wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. The treatment was supposed to take care of it, but it didn’t. Then Dr. Josh Pearson discovers why—his patients, including the former President of the United States, have been dosed with a different strain of the original virus, one that is universally fatal. The only chance for survival is treatment with an experimental drug, but the manufacturer might already have discarded its supply.

As if treating the President of the United States isn’t stressful enough, the situation goes from bad to worse when Rachel Moore, a nurse Josh is falling in love with, falls ill. With the nation’s eyes on him, Josh must pull off a miracle to save a man who holds a good deal of power and the woman who holds his heart.

I am a big fan of medical novels and the Christian suspense genre, so combining the two is a win-win! Dr. Richard Mabry has crafted a compelling story that could come from today's headlines. The tug of war between politics and personal relationships takes center stage when two lives hang in the balance, and Dr. Mabry portrays the tension well. In spite of the caveat at the front of the story advising that the bacterium and drug names are fictitious, the authenticity informed by the author's medical background made want to look them up more than once! Complex characters and multiple possible suspects kept me guessing at the resolution throughout the story. Don't miss Miracle Drug; it's just what the doctor ordered!
