Evening everyone!! This one actually sent twinges of anxiety through me just looking at the cover...so naturally I read it at night. Ugh. There went 8 1/2 precious hours of sleep! -_-
The gunman had nothing to lose, and therefore, the lives of everyone in the emergency room were at risk. Dr. Mark Baker and nurse Kelly Atkinson were on duty during the standoff, but despite their efforts, at the end of the evening, three men were dead—one police officer and two members of the feared Zeta drug cartel. But the killing is not over, because when the drug cartel loses its members, revenge is not far behind. Mark’s life continues to be in danger, but to make matters worse he finds he is under suspicion as a killer! He turns to his high school sweetheart, attorney Gwen Woodruff, for help, while Kelly helplessly looks on, hiding her feelings for the good doctor. The characters in Fatal Trauma face life and death situations that cause them to question their faith, their priorities, and the meaning of their lives, while learning that God can use everyone— even people who’ve failed—because doesn’t that include all of us?
I have a problem.
Symptoms: Sleepless nights, restlessness, chronic cases of looking over the shoulder, fear at the sound of the word "doctor" or "drugs, and lack of trust in the human race.
Diagnosis: Extreme case of "I shouldn't be reading a suspense this late".
Cure: Immediately cease reading extreme suspense books anywhere near your normal bedtime. If you can't handle extreme suspense to the point of being on the verge of screaming while walking through a dimly lit hallway, Fatal Trauma is not for you.
The above is SO true!! I loved the characters and the suspense but I do NOT advise it to be read anytime after 5:00 p.m. Actually, if you aren't big on NCIS, Law & Order, Criminal Intent e.t.c, I don't advise you to read this until you're a little braver. Same goes for young teens.
It's an ingenious plot and ending but I will admit to a serious case of fear as diagnosed above. I read it at around 10:00 p.m and it's a pretty traumatic experience. Not for the faint of heart but definitely worth the read!! Thanks Richard!!
