Publisher's Summary

In his previous best seller, Natural Causes, Dr. Michael Palmer drew on decades of emergency-room experience to create a terrifyingly realistic world where the line between medicine and murder is scalpel thin. In Silent Treatment, he crosses this line with a heart-pounding thriller guaranteed to satisfy fans of medical suspense.

When his wife mysteriously dies the night before she is scheduled for surgery, Dr. Harry Corbett realizes a killer is moving through the wards of Good Samaritan Hospital - a killer so sophisticated and silent that he can only be a doctor.

    Story
    "A cautionary tale for healthcare reform"
    Would you listen to Silent Treatment again? Why?

    Excellent character development, and an first rate understanding of the "business of the healthcare industrial complex" bone chillingly gripping and real. It will be in my vacation selection when I "read" my favorites.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr. Guidall has an excellent range and convincingly portrays a wide variety of characters.

    Story
    "Great medical thriller"
    What made the experience of listening to Silent Treatment the most enjoyable?

    I loved the characters of the story and their responses to the different situations they encountered. They were real, yet entertaining, and the plot kept me enthralled.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot definitely kept me in there; I couldn't wait to hear the next chapter. I enjoyed the technical aspects of the storylines, which were spot on, and I appreciated the interaction of the characters, which kept me rooting for them.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time with George Guidall. I'll look for more by him.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme responses were felt other than a great big sense of relief when things worked out and flashes of adrenaline when they didn't. But......those are good responses!


    Any additional comments?

    I'll read more of Mr. Palmer's books and listen to more of the narrator. They both did a fine job.

    Story
    "Haven't read a bad Palmer, this is another good"

    I enjoy Michael Palmer medical mysteries and enjoyed this as usual. I read Robin Cook and enjoy his books also but Palmer seems more down to earth.

    I always learn something about medicine, medical frauds and unethical administrators. I worked 17 years in healthcare and as Palmer puts his story together I usually realize something I've seen without recognition.

    I think it's worth the read.

    Changed my thoughts on this book since I've realized it's part one of a trilogy; story = 4 stars.Wish Audible made this clear on their site.

    I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.

    Story
    "Listen to an avid user of audible"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, if my friend is interested in a light and easy to read and understand novel.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He is a great narrator and can make most any book a good listen.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I'm used to reading mysteries/thrillers that have more depth. Characters are superficial, they have no intrigue. Mystery is too easy to solve. There is no action, no edge of the seat excitement. Dull but readable.
