New novella from Richard Mabry, MD - "Silent Night, Deadly Night" Giveaway of a signed copy

ISBN-13: 978-1518641091
Rolling headfirst into the Christmas season, it is great to know that beloved medical suspense doctor, Richard Mabry, has penned a novella for us to read. Available on Amazon to purchase, you also have an opportunity to try to win your own, signed copy here on Chat With Vera. Here is what it is all about..... (my thoughts...)

In just under 100 pages, Richard Mabry takes the reader on a chilling ride replete with mystery and chilling events. After a body is found precisely laid out in the front yard and under a mound of fresh fallen snow, the officials begin the task of determining how the lady died and at whose hand.

Per usual procedures, the detectives begin their investigation by first questioning family members. This involves one niece and two nephews and each is a respected professional in either the legal or medical professions. As alibis and time lines are worked out, the detectives narrow the field for possible candidates for the identity of the murderer. For yes, it was murder.

This is another suspenseful read by Richard Mabry in which he incorporates his medical expertise and deftly weaves it into the story. The action is swift and enthralling. A quick and entertaining read that will capture the reader’s attention and hold it until the culprit is captured.

About the book: The colored lights on the snow gave it a holiday appearance, but the dead woman’s body in the yard added a grisly touch. How did Ina Bell Patrick die?

Who killed her? And why?

The dead woman had no direct heirs, so two nephews and a niece stood to inherit. Dr. Laura Morris was left to make all the arrangements, attorney Roger Morris could certainly use the money, and Zack Morris had disappeared two years earlier. Then there was neighbor and “best friend” Fay Autrey, who was certain the woman intended to leave her some money—a great deal of money.

The police were still looking for the killer who left the frozen body in the snow when it became apparent someone was trying to pick off the heirs, one by one. Who would win the race—the police or the killer?

  6. I think I have read all but maybe one of Dr. Mabry's fiction books. I am looking forward to reading his novella as soon as I get the opportunity. I have not read his non-fiction works. His fiction books are among the best available. I hope he continues writing for a long time to come.

  9. I have two of Richard's books on my shelf (Fatal Trauma & Miracle Drug) yet-to-be read, however. So adding this one to it would be great! And yes, I do like novellas set around Christmas time. With it being a busy season (Thanksgiving to Christmas really), novellas are the perfect length to indulge in when you have little time to read but still get you in the holiday mood! Thank you for the chance to win his newest one!

  18. I have several of Mabry's books in my Kindle library but haven't read any yet. I didn't even realize he had this Christmas one. I'm a bit of a stickler for reading books in order so I intend to start at the beginning and go from there soon. Thanks for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday this week! It's a pleasure having you!
