Prepare to be hooked from page one of this shock-inducing medical thriller from
New York Times bestselling author Michael Palmer and his son, acclaimed suspense novelist Daniel Palmer.
Dr. Carrie Bryant is a much-admired neurosurgical resident at an esteemed Boston hospital. When the relentless pace of her residency leads to a life-shattering error, Carrie loses her confidence—and decides to quit her residency and move back home. Her new life’s purpose: To help her combat-vet brother, Adam, recover from a crippling case of post-traumatic stress disorder.
“A unique novel that shows the strength of both authors’ work.”—Mystery Scene
The experimental program at the VA Medical Center promises the possibility of curing the ravages of PTSD forever. It seems like Adam’s best option, but Carrie has her doubts when one of her patients goes missing…and then another. Carrie joins local investigative reporter David Hoffman in the hunt for answers. The hospital, however, is determined to keep its secrets at all costs. As Carrie and David descend into a labyrinth of murder and corruption, the price Carrie could pay for asking the wrong questions is her own life…

Great story Daniel.Thank you for carrying on your fathers story.
Once you start a Michael Palmer book you wont' get anything else done. They're SO good. Trauma (the latest) was finished by his son, Daniel who would make his Dad proud. highly
This book was fantastic. It is a wonderful medical thriller. I don't know if they can work Carrie into any other stories but I really like her. It is always kind of scary to see what something that is to help people can be twisted to harm someone. I hope to read many more by Michael and Daniel Palmer.
Sorry to say, it wasn't up to Mickael Palmers standards. I know, his son did his best, but is not as good as his father.
Fast paced. Good book
