Patient by Michael Palmer

Book Description

Gifted and highly respected, Dr Jessie Copeland is about to revolutionize the field of neurosurgery with her ground-breaking bio-engineering invention. Claude Malloche is suffering from a brain tumor, beyond the treatment of existing medical practice, and only Dr Copeland and her new technique can save him-But Malloche is the mysterious and ruthless killer holding the Boston hospital where Jessie works, and the city, to ransom. If Jessie fails to cure him, hundreds of innocent people will die-But if she succeeds, will Malloche only disappear once more to continue his deadly work?

UK Kirkus Review » From Miracle Cure, Silent Treatment and Natural Causes to this latest thriller, Palmer has acquired a devoted following. The Patient may owe a little to such progenitors of the medical thriller as Robin Cook, but it is none the worse for that. Neurosurgeon Jesse Copeland has achieved all that she has aimed for: a solid career at Eastern Mass Medical Centre, whether it is divided between demanding surgery in the OR or spare time spent developing a robot probe that may revolutionize brain surgery. This invention, ARTIE (Assisted Robot Tissue Incision and Extraction), is a fusion of biomechanics and radiology that will be able to tackle inoperative tumours. When the device is used prematurely, the hospital is swarming with media. But a far greater problem is Claude Malloche, a highly intelligent and utterly ruthless mercenary who needs the medical benefits ARTIE can offer. And Jesse soon faces demands that may cost thousands of lives. All the elements in Palmer's vigorous and arresting narrative mesh with a satisfying smoothness, and make this his most visceral offering yet. (Kirkus UK)
