Have you ever been sick with a bug of some time that the medical profession is stumped?  Michael Palmer lays out a terrific story about the search for a cure of one such illness that the medical field secretly is working on to save those that have had or are showing signs of contracting the bug.  There is so much danger, not only to those attempting to find a cure, but for each person working on this top secret project, they face constant danger from others that have a hint of what is going on and what this bug can do.   Resistant is so good.  Michael Palmer has written real thrillers with lots of twists and turns previously.  He is an excellent writer.  He develops great characters and inter-mingles them into the stories he writes.  The settings include several hospitals, laboratories, millionaires at work and most dangerous games, and some wilderness travels that some take for relaxation.  A lot of pre-chapter quotes appear before a chapter starts, many of which are referring to the “100 Neighbors” a group who has been fighting mostly against the United States leadership from its beginning.  They are very secretive groups that have strong and famous men as their leaders.  They are against the way people receive things from the government that help preserve their ability to live safe and healthy.  They can and do barbaric things to try to gain their means.  Such things as Social Security, Medicare, welfare in any part, and down to localized laws and benefits the mass receives. If you like a real mystery that a very good author has spun for us, you must read this book.  It is not a book that delves into too many unknown subjects without explaining those projects very well.  Thanks you Michael for a terrific book.  We all should look forward to your next book.

The book begins with the premise that a group of guys want to end medicare, medicaid and social security. They also want to fix it so only the rich can afford hospital treatment. Noble goals for sure :-( This group of 100 seek to do this by spreading the plague. What a wonderful idea! The plot makes perfect sense, NOT. Save your time & money !

I found this book very offensive to me. I certainly agree with giving anyone help who needs it, but to suggest if one feels evey able bodied person should take responsibility for themselves and work hard to obtain their goals is a terrorist, then I disagree. Jesus Christ said 'Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he'll eat for the rest of his life'. This portrayal of conservative values as terrorism is completely off the mark. If all of Palmers books are this biased, I won't be reading them anymore.

This book is alright. It got overly wordy and way too much about things not important to the story. The characters were a little unbelievable. In a couple placs it got dumb. Two to take on a fortress, come on!

Another page turner by Michael Palmer, If you enjoy mysteries with a medical theme be sure to read this one.

I had a very hard time putting this one down.  The story flowed really well and I loved the main characters..  It could be very scary if this were to really happen in real life.

I am sick to my stomach just knowing i actually paid good money for this crap ! I am very hesitant to purchase anything else on this device. I am quite certain I won't be buying anything else written by Mr. Palmer whom I once thought was a pretty good writer of medical mysteries. This book tested my patience , bored me to tears , and insulted my intelligence. ! The sad attemps at humor , the tiring and repetative dialog,, and the unlikely ER doctor turned FBI hero stretched my imagination to the snapping point.! I have learned my lesson about buying books that start off good, just to bait you and end with you throwing up all over it ! Sorry guys.....this is a total and complete waste of money.
