Dr. Matt Newman told a story that made him a victim. Detective Virgil Grimes thinks he is guilty of murder. Add a DA who is committed to his career and a defense lawyer who only only half believes Dr. Newman and we have a medical thriller that cannot be put down. Dr. Newman also hopes to start teaching surgery at the local medical school next week. Unless he is cleared, it is not going to happen.
During the course of the story, Dr. Newman learns that he is not only a great surgeon, he is also a great emergency room doctor - a fact that will, in time, keep him out of jail for a while. All this takes place while Dr. Newman is trying to understand the role God will have in his life - how does a loving God allow for the events that are turning his life upside down.
A story with enough twists and turns, Stress Test is difficult to put down. It kept me up for at least two nights - reading first in front of the TV and then in bed. An good story for anyone who likes a good mystery - believer or not.
