Publisher's Summary

An agonizing sports injury did more than end Brian Holbrook's professional football dreams. It left the skilled cardiologist with an addiction to prescription painkillers that eventually cost him his marriage and his license to practice medicine. But now, at 38, Brian's cleaned up his act, swallowed his pride, and is ready to start over. Yet how far is he willing to go to be a doctor?

The prestigious Boston Heart Institute has offered Brian an opportunity to get back into scrubs...and participate in trials of an extraordinary new drug that could revolutionize medicine. Vasclear may have the power to reverse arteriosclerosis, the number one killer in the civilized world. In short, it offers the promise of a pharmaceutical fountain of youth.

The initial results are so dazzling, Brian pushes to get his own father, who has a dangerous heart condition, accepted into the Vasclear study. But soon Brian is uneasy. Under close scrutiny because of his past, he knows that the last thing he can afford to do is make waves - and yet he finds himself compelled to ask questions that his superiors can't, or won't, answer: Why a respected colleague has disappeared...Why a patient who'd made startling progress has suddenly died...

With billions of dollars at stake in the race to get FDA approval for the drug, Brian's meddling could destroy his career - and end his father's life. For as Dr. Brian Holbrook is beginning to suspect, at Boston Heart Institute, knowing too much is the quickest way to the morgue.

    "Miracle Cure"

    Like other Palmer novels, I loved "Miracle Cure". Palmer has a great talent for carrying stories along smoothly, with plenty of suspense. A compelling story about a miracle cure for arteriosclerosis and big pharma corruption. The narrator did a great job, too. I liked "Fatal" a bit better, mainly because this audiobook was abridged. I felt as though a few important aspects of the stroy were omitted. But all in all, another great story by Palmer.
