Stress Test Book Review

Book Review of Stress Test
  by Richard L. Mabry, M.D.

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

     "THEY MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO CONVICT HIM, BUT THEY HAVE ENOUGH TO RUIN HIS LIFE.  Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life as a surgeon in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left the hospital at 2 a.m. have no such plans—they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is fleeing with his life. He does escape, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU . . . where he awakens to discover he’s being charged with murder."
     I was really torn on what to write in my review for this book.  Although, I liked the book as a whole, it really didn't have much meat.  It was very basic and bland without much character development, nor depth.  It's a quick read for those who would like some light entertainment on an airplane.  Don't expect major twists or development in this thriller - just your meat-and-potatoes good book.
