From the New York Times best-selling author of A Heartbeat Away and The Last Surgeon comes a shocking new novel at the crossroads of politics and medicine.
What if a well respected doctor inexplicably goes on a murderous rampage? When Dr. John Meacham goes on a shooting spree, his business partner, staff, and two patients are killed in the bloodbath. Then Meacham turns the gun on himself.
The blame falls on Dr. Lou Welcome. Welcome worked with Meacham years before as a counselor after John's medical license had been revoked for drug addiction. Lou knew that John was an excellent doctor and deserved to be practicing medicine, and fought hard for his license to be restored. After hearing the news of the violent outburst, Lou is in shock like everyone else, but mostly he's incredulous. When he begins to look into it further, the terrifying evidence he finds takes him down a path to an unspeakable conspiracy that seems to lead directly to the White House and those in the highest positions of power.

Narrator is better than the storyline. Story is okay, but just okay. Parts are disgusting. Medical content is really good, as are the boxing scenes
I normally like Palmer's book and this is no exception. It is however not a page turner. I enjoyed it and the narration was excellent. If you like a good mystery, you will enjoy this. I think it it just above your average mystery but worth a credit.
Part medical drama, part mystery, part romance, part diatribe on genetically modified foods. This book tries to be too much. The narrator is good but he can't save a bad plot.
The story is like many of Michael Palmer book's, if you like his other work you will like this book.
Petkoff is the right reader for this type of book, good performance
The book was excellent. The narrator was outstanding. Great reading voice and perfect speed.
It allowed great visualization the story.
Yes it might be. There were moments when I wanted to stop reading and I couldn't I credit the reader and the plot line. If I had been reading a print version it probably would have been easier to stop reading.
The wildness. I was completely unable to stop listening. The plot is very interesting however the pace is so contagious; the story just goes from thrill to thrill.
No; but I enjoyed him immensely.
A electrifying thrill you'll never finish eating your popcorn!
I loved the drama, the excitement and the love story.
I have an extreme interest in medicine and politics and Michael Palmer did an extraordinary job of braiding the them together.
The character Lou Welcome.
No, I have not but he did a wonderful job. Will definately listen again.
I would recommend, story was interesting
yes, his tones changed and I was able to tell the difference between the different characters
