5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Winner Again and Again 3 Jan 2010
By Steve G
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Michael Palmer has done it again. I started this book lastnight and, thought I would read a couple of pages. Not so, I was half way through the book before I put the light out. Sisterhood will have you looking over your shoulder when passing any hospitals. it grabs you from the first page and will not let you go. I was never one for medical books, but Michael Palmer has changed all that. His books go down well with both male and female readers. I wish he could turn one out each week. It will be a sad loss when I've read them all...still to hell with it, why not start them all over again. This guy is one of the best out there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful First Novel! 20 Oct 2005
By Busy Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have only read a few of Michael Palmer's books and this one is definitely a suspenseful read! I can tell it was one of his earlier works just because they were making a big deal about the main character's lawyer paying a grand a month for his office. Nowadays the price would be a bit steeper. =0)

This one focuses on Dr. David Shelton, who is working to rebuild his career after a tragic accident and personal downfall. He agrees to take over his boss' caseload for the weekend. That was a fateful decision as one of his patients died and was discovered to be murdered. Shelton is then up against something sinister among the nurses ~~ The Sisterhood ~~ who believe in mercy killing. Framed for the murder, Shelton is on the run and soon, everyone close to him is dying.

This is a pretty good first attempt ~~ I know that I will be nervous going into the hospital again! (I would NOT recommend reading this just before surgery!) I have to give this to my sister-in-law who is a nurse to see what she says. It's pretty creepy! This book is perfect for these cold rainy nights we've been having in Ohio!

So if you're new to Michael Palmer, you can't miss with this one! Like his other books, this one will draw you in!

4.0 out of 5 stars High Suspense 26 Jan 1999
By N. Sausser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A highly suspenseful thriller filled with tension. I found myself peeking ahead in the story, on occasion, to find out if the bad guys were actually stopped or the good guys made it through another crisis. The main characters were easy to identify with right from the start and the story moves along at a very fast pace. Hard to put down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine first novel medical thriller by another Mass General MD 20 Aug 2002
By Jerry Bull - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A friend gave us the old "if you like Robin Cook, you'll love Michael Palmer." Close enough - a medical thriller for sure, Palmer ironically was a contemporary of Cook at Massachusetts General, and has practiced since as an MD for some 20 years. Somehow he found time to start writing, and although his first book didn't make the cut, he got a commission for The Sisterhood, copyrighted in 1982. At the pace of about one each two years, his tenth novel ("Fatal") has just arrived, so he must be doing well.
Unlike the "stretch", if not medico-sci-fi premises of Cook, this story has a very believable premise: that a group of well-intentioned nurses have formed a secret society that very selectively practices euthanasia on "appropriate" patients. Remember this was written several years before Dr. Kevorkian, in just a slightly different way, shed so much light on this subject. So part of the book is a light, but thought provoking, discussion of the morality and or virtues (or not) of mercy killing.
The suspense really picks up when one of these killings goes sour. Subbing for a prominent surgeon, our leading man, Dr. David Shelton, into whose life a lot of tragedy has already fallen, has a recent operative patient die on him. Between the outrage of the head surgeon and the thoroughness of our hero, the autopsy reveals foul play. The "sisterhood" has to go into action to take unusual measures to cover its tracks, point to Shelton as the murderer, and put out contracts on the nurse, Christine Beall, who we already know actually did the deed, and our doctor as well. Literally running for their lives, Christine and David wind up romantically involved as well, just adding to the fun. Before it's over, another couple of murders add to the tension and suspense, and a great twist at the end concludes a very entertaining story.
Were it not for a bit of a slowdown in the middle book area, we might have rated this first novel 4 stars - so we recommend it; and eagerly look forward to reading Palmer's second book, "Side Effects".

5.0 out of 5 stars I've read all of his books except "Patient" 5 Sep 2000
By Ann C. Oman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Yes - his books seem to following the typical formula/recipe for medical mystery thriller - BUT, each of the eight paperbacks of his books I finished in record time and couldn't get enough of them! After reading the first one "Silent Treatment" I ordered the other seven to read too! Yes, I too am fairly good at guessing the next "thing" that will occur in mystery books that I read - but I am pretty good at doing so with mystery movies and TV series too - so this is nothing new to me. I have to say that I have also passed on his books to friends and family to read and they are just as captivated by his writing ability and plots as I have been! They are a good, exciting, fast read and if that is what you are after you won't be disappointed - give his books a shot - I certainly did - and I'm not in the least bit disappointed that I did.

2.0 out of 5 stars It could be more exciting... 8 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book took me several months to finish reading it..why? Because I felt so bored half way through the book. Well, I finally forced myself to finish it...the thrills didn't kick in until the last couple of chapters.. His other books, Silent Treatment & Natural Causes, were much better.
