The First Patient from October 2008
In Michael Palmer's the First Patient, another excellent medical thriller with political thriller elements, this would take you to the edge of the seat. Andrew Stoddard and Gabe Singleton were room mates at the Naval Academy years ago. From war heroes, they became a county doctor and the governor to the president of the United States. During a political campaign, it was when Andrew's plane landed on Gabe's Wyoming home and had asked for Gabe's help, as he told him a shocking revelation--his own doctor's missing and had disappeared. He needed him to replace him. Gabe had serious doubts before he agreed to get on board. When he had his own office in the White House, he believed Andrew might be going insane. He had the power to invoke the 25th Amendment, while he investigated his condition; in a race against time, it was up to him to save the country, too.
This medical thriller would give you goosebumps and leaving you feeling numb all over. I did care about Andrew and Gabe and the people in the White House. I was also concerned about our country, too. I loved the Wyoming-D.C. dual locations as well for this excellent medical thriller. I didn't like it on how people tried to make the president crazy as well. This would grip you on the first page and reel you in by the end, hooked by non-stop action, plenty of drama, and intense political thriller elements, too.
Will you be the first patient? If so, pick it up to give it a try!
The Fifth Vial from February 2008
In Michael Palmer's the Fifth Vial, he once again wrote us a fantastic medical thriller. In Boston, a disgraced medical student was sent to deliver a research paper to save her career. In the jungles of the Cameroon, a brilliant, reclusive scientist is dying from an incurable disease and is on the verge of perfecting a serum to save lives and bring others tons of wealth. And in Chicago, a disillusioned private detective was hired to determine the identity of a John Doe that was killed on a Florida highway. What bridged those three lives together was a single vial of blood, while they were in peril, they moved closer on unraveling the god-like secret society with antiquity roots. They dealt with deception and betrayal all the way.
This was a fantastic medical thriller that sent chills up and down my spine. I did care about the three main characters who were dealt with hardships and tough times. I didn't like it, when the secret society wanted to take control and manipulate their lives, even with a single blood vial. But I liked it on how those three lives all around the world were bridged together, too, and joined forces as well. I loved the trio of location of Chicago and Boston in the USA and straight to the Cameroon jungles. This would send you goosebumps and numbness as well. Great fantastic medical drama, plenty of intense intrigue, and lots of non-stop action from start to finish.
