Miracle Drug by Richard L. Mabry was captivating from beginning to end. This book was in the works before the Ebola scare, but because we did have a deadly, contagious disease in our recent memory, we can remember the anxiety and, therefore, feel for the characters even more since it didn't seem so far-fetched. Plus, it was an edge of the seat kind of book. ;-)
Dr Josh Pearson suddenly becomes the doctor to the former president of the United States after the former doctor died. Awed to be chosen, he immediately gives his new job most of his attention. But when his girlfriend, Rachel Moore, and the president both become deathly ill, Josh has to race the clock to find a cure for them both. Will Josh be able to find a miracle drug before time runs out?
This story was a fast-paced, thrilling read, and I enjoyed the premise of a mystery disease. I liked all the different plots going on at the same time because it added to the suspense and kept me guessing until the end. It was an enthralling story, and I'm sure any suspense fan will love it, too.
I was given this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
