Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of A Heartbeat Away and The Last Surgeon comes a shocking new novel at the crossroads of politics and medicine.
What if a well respected doctor inexplicably goes on a murderous rampage? When Dr. John Meacham goes on a shooting spree, his business partner, staff, and two patients are killed in the bloodbath. Then Meacham turns the gun on himself.
The blame falls on Dr. Lou Welcome. Welcome worked with Meacham years before as a counselor after John's medical license had been revoked for drug addiction. Lou knew that John was an excellent doctor and deserved to be practicing medicine, and fought hard for his license to be restored. After hearing the news of the violent outburst, Lou is in shock like everyone else, but mostly he's incredulous. When he begins to look into it further, the terrifying evidence he finds takes him down a path to an unspeakable conspiracy that seems to lead directly to the White House and those in the highest positions of power.

Not too believable

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Story started off pretty good and then went down hill. Having the Presidents wife on the caper, corn making people crazy. It got out of hand. Performance was good.

If you listen to this book you will know why I said it is corny! and it really is. Not only that, it is terrible. I agree with the previous review, that it is disjointed. It is also not really a medical mystery, although characters are MD's. Also a forced romantic part and a silly politcal angle. I can't believe Palmer wrote this.
