Release Day For New Book: Diagnosis Death

Well, it's here--the "official" release date for the third (but not final) book in the Prescription For Trouble series. Diagnosis Death is now available, and the advance reviews have just blown me away. Here are a couple:
“…Another riveting medical drama, the third in his Prescription for Trouble series. Full of sudden twists and turns, the novel’s fast pace makes it hard to put down.”  Romantic Times Book Reviews (4 ½ stars)
“Mabry (Medical Error) crafts a tight medical drama that will have readers guessing. For fans of the gory, gritty details of patient trauma and hospital gossip, this book certainly will be an enjoyable page-turner.” Publishers Weekly.

And here's a little about the book.

                  Removing life support can be a killer!
            When her comatose husband died in the ICU while on life support, the whispers about Dr. Elena Gardner began. They were stronger after another patient died in ICU. After she took up practice in a small town, the whispers turned to a shout: “mercy killing.” What was the dark secret that kept Elena’s lips sealed when she should be defending herself?
            Then there were the midnight phone calls that started after her husband’s death. Who was the woman who sobbed out, “I know what you did?” And how could Elena stop the calls that tortured her?
            Two physicians, widowers themselves, tell Elena they know what she is going through. But do they? And is it safe to trust either of them with her secret?
            Would what Elena did in her husband’s ICU room turn out to be a prescription for trouble?

If you'd like a sneak peak at the principal character of the book, Dr. Elena Gardner, check reviewer Rel Mollett's website for this character spotlight.
I hope you'll enjoy Diagnosis Death
 Special Note: If you can't get enough of my words of wisdom, today I have a guest post at Jordyn Redwood's Medical Edge. I'm also being interviewed on The Big Thrill, the e-zine of the International Thriller Writers. And Nina Bermudez posts a very nice interview with yours truly on her blog today. I encourage you to check them all out.

This is good news. I just read the first book a couple weeks ago, and I love it when I can go write into another book by an author I enjoyed.

Friends, thanks to all of you for stopping by and leaving such nice comments and encouraging words.

I usually try to respond more quickly, but due to timing that was either very bad or very good, I was out of town and away from all Internet access from Friday morning until Sunday evening. This was the annual golf weekend for myself and three other men, and I assure you that, although golf was played and large quantities of food with not much nutritional value was eaten, I didn't think too much about writing or my blog site.

Thanks again.
