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.

More than just a whodunnit!

Richard Mabry wastes no time in bringing his readers into his world with Rx Murder. "Mary Lou Stewart cowered, half-crouching, in the corner of her living room. She felt consciousness slipping away, and fought it with deep breaths." This is how Mabry begins his exciting new novella, Rx Murder. I was immediately drawn into Mary Lou's pain and fear as her husband Luke was beating her. Dr. David Merritt and his fiance Dr. Elena Gardner try to help Mary Lou get out of her abusive situation, but find themselves in far deeper than they bargained for when Luke ends up dead!

Richard Mabry's writing elicits energy and excitement. I could hear the bones crunch; I could see the blood ooze. His detailed descriptions play the story in my mind clearly. I could not put it down until the end. Mabry's writing talent is not just in his ability to draw the pictures with his words, but also in laying the story out in such a way as to keep me guessing about who really dunnit!
