Product Details


Raves for Michael Palmer’s

The Patient might be [Palmer’s] most riveting book yet, leaving hardly enough time to take a breath.”
The Denver Post

The Patient is what Die Hard movies are made of: brilliantly nasty terrorists hectoring innocent folks, with only a wisecracking lone wolf to forestall.”
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“A highly entertaining tale of greed and medicine run amok.”
Chicago Tribune

“Packs plenty of heart-stopping action.”
Associated Press

“Wrenchingly scary…Palmer is reaching the top of a demanding craft.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Palmer [brings] his fascinating ER procedural knowledge to a fast-paced…narrative.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Guaranteed to terrify anyone who…has reason to step inside the doors of a hospital….Dynamite plot…fast-paced and engrossing.”
The Washington Post

“Palmer owes this reviewer about three hours of sleep spent reading this can’t-put-it-downer. You are cautioned…don’t start this one at 10 at night.”
The Washington Times
