A physician accused of murder. A massive cover-up. An entire nation at risk…In Political Suicide, New York Times bestselling author Michael Palmer once again delivers a stunning page-turner set at the crossroads of politics, the military, and medical science.

 

Dr. Gary McHugh, known around Washington, D.C. as the “society doc,” calls his longtime friend Dr. Lou Welcome in a state of panic. A patient of his, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Elias Colston, has been found shot to death in his home—soon after McHugh paid him a visit.

 

“OUTSTANDING”—Suspense Magazine

 

Did McHugh kill Colston? He has no recollection of committing a crime because, later that same night, McHugh wrecked his car in an alcoholic stupor. As more facts come to light, Lou has serious doubts about his friend’s innocence. But something about McHugh’s story still doesn’t add up…and soon a shocking truth is revealed.

 

“Plenty of chills and spills.”—Kirkus Reviews

 

With the help of Sarah Cooper, an ambitious attorney with her own reasons for mistrusting doctors, Lou enters a dangerous game of cat and mouse and finds himself at the dead center of a conspiracy—one that extends to the highest levels of government, and could destroy the very fabric of national security.

  

Palmer writes terrific medical suspense, and he has thrown political intrigue into the mix.”—Associated Press

Praise for Political Suicide

Praise for

POLITICAL SUICIDE

“When you open the pages of a Michael Palmer novel, you know you are in the hands of a pro. This author knows how to weave a plot and keep the action coming, and the readers know it won’t all fall apart at the end.  Such is definitely the case with Political Suicide. Each page adds a new dimension to the characters and a new revelation to the plot. It is action/mystery reading at its best. Palmer just keeps delivering good stories, one right after the other.”—Huffington Post

“This book goes from great to outstanding…a definite keeper!” —Suspense Magazine

“Plenty of chills and spills.”—Kirkus Reviews

Palmer writes terrific medical suspense, and he has thrown political intrigue into the mix…fans won’t be disappointed.”—Associated Press

“Michael Palmer once again delivers an adrenaline-pumped political and medical action thriller... Palmer fans will not be disappointed in this suspenseful and realistic, fast-paced whodunit.”— Jewish Journal

“A must-read for fans of political intrigue.”—Fort-Worth Star Telegram

“The military conspiracy is frightening, while Lou’s interactions with his daughter and his blossoming romantic interest in a tough attorney provide some breaks from the merciless pace of the investigation. Suspend disbelief that an ER doctor can, or should, attempt some of these actions and enjoy the ride.”—RT Book Reviews

 

Michael Palmer mixes politics, medical science, and the military to create another suspenseful medical thriller.”—Examiner.com
