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?
After enjoying a few of this author's previous novels I was looking forward to reading this book. Sadly I couldn't finish it. I read a chunk of it but wasn't getting into the story at all and I have so many books to read that I can't spend time on ones I'm not enjoying. The writing was a bit choppy, there were too many details about insignificant things, and I wasn't really liking any of the characters but the premise was interesting and I'm sure others will enjoy it, it just wasn't for me. I hate writing negative reviews but I was asked to give my honest thoughts and that's what I have done. I really hope you check out other reviews and don't just take my opinion.
