Any reader would enjoy this book, medical professional or layman. Lots of twists and turns.
I bought this book years ago from books on tape in the cassets. I have looked for Michael Kramer on audible but not thoroughly enough. I love his work. Michael Palmer's work is sometimes interesting but it is Kramer who holds me to this book. So, I can say that the book holds me interested over a great many years and lots and lots of books but I can not say it is the story alone that I value. Michael Kramer narrated the early books of Stephen White and I miss them. Dick Hill has the voices and characters in that series done very well but he can not supply an odd nuance for humor that Kramer does so well. Sometimes these old friends are just missed. Manner of Death is about the only one not redone by Dick Hill and it would be nice if Michael Kramer's version was found and offered.
The Patient is not an especially nuanced book but it is full of personalities done well both as prose and voice. The medical themes and community are interesting. The mystery is not new these days but this is an old book. Older books often have a stong narrative development and this one has enough to stick in memory.
