Extreme Measures by Michael Palmer

Book Description

Young, talented, and ambitious, Dr Eric Najarian has all the qualities they're looking for at White Memorial Hospital. What Eric doesn't know is that he's being watched. And judged. An elite clique of medical professionals thinks he has what it takes to join their secret club. All the young doctor has to do is agree to play by their rules. But Eric has already seen too much. A missing body. An unspeakable mutilation. A brutal abduction. It's only the beginning of a terrifyingly evil plot, a sinister plan the group will stop at nothing to hide. And if Eric refuses to become their colleague - he will be their next victim...

US Kirkus Review » Here's a coincidence: two physicians who graduated from Wesleyan Univ., who now practice in Massachusetts, and who write best-selling medical thrillers. One is Robin Cook; the other is Palmer, whose fast-paced hard-cover debut owes a clear debt to his better-known colleague. Like Cook, Palmer pits a brave doc - Eric Najarian, crack emergency-room M.D. at a huge Boston hospital - against a diabolical cabal: Caduceus, which anonymously contacts Najarian and promises him a desired promotion if he'll help in unspecified research. And like Cook, Palmer roots a bizarre plot - bankrolled through drug-dealing, Caduceus turns out to be developing a revolutionary anti-viral drug by experimenting on humans it's turned into zombies with a secret voodoo powder - into a bedrock of authentic medical detail. Though sorely tempted to join Caduceus, Najarian is wooed from its siren's call by plucky Laura Enders, a Caribbean diving instructor who's flown north to look for her missing brother, Scott. Can Scott be the derelict whom Najarian declared dead of a coronary two months back? And can he still be alive - a suspicion raised when a patient with symptoms similar to Scott's revives during autopsy? Teaming up and falling in love, Najarian and Laura turn sleuth, dig out clues at a spooky funeral parlor, and begin to piece together the puzzle when Najarian is kidnapped by voodoo practitioners and nearly subjected to the zombie-powder. Meanwhile, Scott, who's actually a government agent, escapes from the Utah ghost town, headquarters of Caduceus, where he's been shanghaied along with other zombies, and lumbers east; once he reunites with Laura, violent action dominates as Najarian & Co. confront Caduceus - and the surprising figure at its helm. Not as much sheer fun as Cook - the tone here is darker, more solemn - but with strong narrative drive geared by myriad plot twists, this is brisk, hard-working entertainment for fans of medical mischief.

Author Biography - Michael Palmer

Michael Palmer spent twenty years as a full-time practitioner of emergency medicine and was an associate director of addiction medicine in Massachusetts. He died in October 2013. Author Comments 'At Wesleyan University in Connecticut where I went to college, I took a seminar on Edgar Allan Poe. Poe wrote so effectively about people being buried alive that for years wills demanded that a bell-and-chain set-up be rigged in the deceased's casket just in case they awoke underground. What if there was a drug that could make a person look dead when they weren't?'
