Overview

Miracle Cure by Michael Palmer, Palmer

The master of medical suspense takes you to prestigious Boston Heart Institute, where some patients are dying to get well....

After a troubled past, Dr.  Brian Holbrook has been given a second chance to prove himself.  At state-of-the-art Boston Heart Institute, he's been chosen to join the medical team testing a new miracle drug.  The initial results are so promising that Brian pushes to get his father—who suffers from a dangerous heart condition—accepted into the study.

But Brian is beginning to suspect his superiors are hiding something.  Why are crucial records disappearing? Why did a patient making startling progress suddenly die? Is the miracle drug a prescription for death? The answers could cost Brian more than his career.  For at Boston Heart Institute, knowing too much is the quickest way to the morgue.

This was the first Michael Palmer book that I had read. What a treat it was. Despite the deliberate beginning, you find there's a reason for that as the story takes place. As I neared the end, I felt the author was double parked. A high speed, low drag thriller that is well worth the read, virtually to the last page. Good stuff.

I enjoyed this book but I liked The Fifth Vial much better. I found this book easy to put down, however I was curious as to what was going to happen. This is a one time read but I still want to read other books by Michael Palmer. --K--
