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.

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.
Pam Foster - I enjoy listening to books. I had to retire early and I've found audio to be one of my good friends. Reading reviews is a must before purchasing a book.
Yes, if my friend is interested in a light and easy to read and understand novel.
He is a great narrator and can make most any book a good listen.
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.
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.
Mr. Guidall has an excellent range and convincingly portrays a wide variety of characters.
