Book Description: Dr. Elena Gardner learns an OB patient of her fiancé, Dr. David Merritt, is suffering frequent beatings at the hands of her husband. Despite Elena’s advice, the wife refuses to take legal action against her abusing husband. David is so frustrated that he loudly and publicly voices his desire to beat the man senseless. When someone actually kills the husband in that fashion, David’s off-hand expression leads him to the sheriff’s office. As the situation worsens, the two doctors form a partnership with a new attorney in town in order to fight a murder charge.
My Thoughts: Dr. Richard Maybry writes the best medical mysteries. I've read all of his books and yet to be disappointed.
When I received Rx Murder I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is a novella. At first I thought how can this read be interesting? It's too short to develop a story, just 82 pages. Well, it just so happens that great things come in small packages.
I read this novella in one setting...well, I did get up to get more Vin Tea but it is quite interesting.
It's more than a medical read, it's a mystery. And a lesson.
Dr. David Merritt learns that one's words can get one into a puddle of trouble. But his fiancé, Dr. Elena Gardner, teams up with him to help him get out of trouble and find the murderer.
A great mini read!
