What happens when the race to stop a lethal bacteria becomes a race to stop a killer?

Dr. Sara Miles’ teenage patient is on the brink of death from an overwhelming, highly resistant infection with Staph luciferus, known to doctors as “the killer.” Only an experimental antibiotic, developed and administered by Sara’s ex-husband can save the girl's life.

But potentially lethal effects from the drug send Sara and her colleague, Dr. Rip Pearson, on a hunt for hidden critical data that will let them reverse the effects before it’s too late. What is the missing puzzle piece? And who is hiding it?

"A fast-paced inspirational medical thriller that will hold you spellbound." - FreshFiction.com

"Lethal Remedy boasts a gripping medical plot that only an insider could write so believably… Dr. Mabry takes his knowledge of the medical profession, combines it with a ticking clock, and gives the reader a problem we'd all be terrified to face. What more could the reader of a good medical suspense ask for?" ―Susan Sleeman, author of Behind The Badge and The Justice Agency series

"Lethal Remedy is the perfect cure for boredom: a first-rate medical thriller with humor, engaging characters, and realism that only a seasoned doctor could bring to the story." --Rick Acker, author of When the Devil Whistles and Blood Brothers
