Format: Paperback
This was my first book by this author. The Plot kept me up reading until the early hours. The only downside was that the book had not been properly proofread and there were a lot of hut instead of but. All in all I will get the rest of his books as this was one of the best stories I have read in a long time.

I have not read this author before - but I found it up with the best of medical crime novels. Excellent pace and plot development, with good characters and accurate medical science content. Having started it on a rainy morning, I couldn't put my light out until I had finished (at 2am!). Highly reccommended.

Format: Paperback
Michael Palmer's ninth medical thriller is well-worth reading. Its plot, which thrusts a gifted neurosurgeon into a world of escalating danger and violence, is loaded with twists and turns and will keep you glued to your seat. Further, the characters are mostly well-developed and interesting. While The Patient is at times predictable and its ending is somewhat implausible, it nevertheless is a fun read and a real page-turner. The Patient is higjly recommended when you're in the mood for a book that is pure escapism. It's a highly charged thriller that will keep the pages flying through your fingers.
