With each New York Times bestseller, ER physician turned author Michael Palmer sets a new standard for medical suspense. Packed with factual authenticity only a doctor could prescribe, this book is Palmer's most electrifying thriller yet.
Dr. Brian Holbrook - former football star and disgraced chief of cardiology - is given the chance of a lifetime when he gets a call from the prestigious Boston Heart Institute. They need him to join an elite team testing the new miracle drug Vasclear. With his father suffering from a dangerous heart condition, Holbrook seizes the opportunity to save his reputation, and also his father's life. However, when patients start dying mysteriously, and colleagues begin to disappear, it's up to Holbrook to find the truth before it's too late.
Ron McLarty's inspired narration will carry you spellbound as greed and murder join forces in the shining halls of a world-renowned hospital.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Physician Michael Palmer is a long time writer of medical mystery novels. Miracle Cure was written 17 years ago and I'm pleased that it is now available in audiobook format. The long time criticism that all of Palmer's books tend to follow the same formula is valid for Miracle Cure, but it detracts little from this well written novel. The themes of the novel are (1) a physician who makes a major mistake can be redeemed and (2) drug studies can be rather easily manipulated.
Having Ron McLardy narrate Miracle Cure is a treat.
