Summary

A New York Times bestseller

A USA Today bestseller

A Publishers Weekly bestseller

Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award

In his previous best-seller, Natural Causes, Dr. Michael Palmer drew on decades of emergency-room experience to create a terrifyingly realistic world where the line between medicine and murder is scalpel-thin. In Silent Treatment, he crosses this line with a heart-pounding thriller guaranteed to satisfy fans of medical suspense. When his wife mysteriously dies the night before she is scheduled for surgery, Dr. Harry Corbett realizes a killer is moving through the wards of Good Samaritan Hospital-a killer so sophisticated and silent that he can only be a doctor.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Palmer’s medical-insurance mystery story will increase the anxiety level of any listener who’s on the way to the doctor...There’s plenty of action, and the medical details are authentic. George Guidall serves up a malicious killer, a lovable doctor-hero, a beautiful bald-headed lady, thugs, call girls, detectives, and jealous lovers. His style is subtle; the slight pause here, the hard edge there. The listener almost forgets the voice, which is clear but not aggressive. Guidall is especially able to convey character through dialogue.” AudioFile
“Palmer has written another winner in his usual gripping, surprise-filled manner...Silent Treatment will make many readers think, definitely keep them interested, and maybe even make them cheer when Palmer’s next thriller appears.” Booklist
“Palmer creates a suspenseful, entirely credible tale of health insurance fraud and behind-the-scenes hospital politics. Palmer, who manages to find new and more frightening themes for his medical thrillers, gets better with each book.” Library Journal
“Extremely vivid characters...never boring.” Kirkus Reviews
