They may not have enough evidence to convict him, but they have enough to ruin his life. Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life as a surgeon in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left the hospital at 2 a.m. have no such plans—they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is fleeing with his life. He does escape, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU . . . where he awakens to discover he’s being charged with murder. Sandra Murray is a fiery, redheaded lawyer who swore she was done with doctors after her last relationship. But when Matt calls, she knows she can’t walk away from defending someone who is truly innocent. Matt’s career is going down the drain. His freedom and perhaps his life may be next. But with the police convinced he’s a killer and the kidnappers still trying to finish what they started, finding the truth—and the faith to keep going—will be the toughest stress test Matt has ever endured. “Packed with thrills, Stress Test is a lightning-paced read that you’ll read in one breath.” —Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of Last to Die

His novels have been a semifinalist for International Thriller Writers' debut novel; finalists for the Carol Award, the Romantic Times' Reviewer's Choice Award, and the RWA Inspirational Reader's Choice Award; and winner of the Selah Award.Review:
"The plot moves along with plenty of action and empathy, and there's suspense and suspicion enough to keep readers zipping to the last pages. For Christian suspense fans anxious to see characters who ought to have it all--doctors and lawyers--react to the pressure of false accusations and the struggle to be loyal to the truth and to one another, Mabry's novel arrives with a positive prognosis."
"Mabry's latest provides fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action and suspense. His medical knowledge is evident in the realistic and detailed characters and scenes."
