Publisher's Summary

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 Welcome worked with Meacham years before as a counselor after John's medical license had been revoked for drug addiction.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.

    "What a chore to listen to this book"
    Has Oath of Office turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I usually love Michael Palmer books but this was just . . . bizarre . . . and made no sense.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    No problem with the narration but the story didn't make any sense.

    I am in English teacher who seeks to bring knowledge of literature and of the one true God to all of my students. I also love listening to books on my commute to and from school.

    Story
    "Couldn't Finish- Not Impressed"
    Would you try another book from Michael Palmer and/or Robert Petkoff?

    I would not buy another Michael Palmer book. The plot was too predictable, and the characters vastly underdeveloped. Disappointing.

    Story
    "Can't believe Palmer wrote this."
    What disappointed you about Oath of Office?

    It was shallow, totally improbable, often predictable. The president/first lady involvement a huge stretch. The romance/non-romance with the First Lady; what the heck was that and why was it in there? Everything and everybody was the best, the fastest, the most remarkable. The characters were laughable.


    What could Michael Palmer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write it like his other books.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All three. I only finished the book because I kept thinking it would finish well but it didn't. If his name wasn't Palmer, he could never have sold this book. It's awful.
