Publisher's Summary

With each New York Times bestseller, ER physician turned author Michael Palmer sets a new standard for medical suspense. Packed with factual authenticity only a doctor could prescribe, this book is Palmer's most electrifying thriller yet.

Dr. Brian Holbrook - former football star and disgraced chief of cardiology - is given the chance of a lifetime when he gets a call from the prestigious Boston Heart Institute. They need him to join an elite team testing the new miracle drug Vasclear. With his father suffering from a dangerous heart condition, Holbrook seizes the opportunity to save his reputation, and also his father's life. However, when patients start dying mysteriously, and colleagues begin to disappear, it's up to Holbrook to find the truth before it's too late.

Ron McLarty's inspired narration will carry you spellbound as greed and murder join forces in the shining halls of a world-renowned hospital.

Excellent medical mystery novel!

Physician Michael Palmer is a long time writer of medical mystery novels. Miracle Cure was written 17 years ago and I'm pleased that it is now available in audiobook format. The long time criticism that all of Palmer's books tend to follow the same formula is valid for Miracle Cure, but it detracts little from this well written novel. The themes of the novel are (1) a physician who makes a major mistake can be redeemed and (2) drug studies can be rather easily manipulated.

Having Ron McLardy narrate Miracle Cure is a treat.

Michael Palmer at his best!

I've started rereading Michael Palmer's books after decades! I'd forgotten how his books really are impossible to put down! Miracle Cure is one of his best!

Narrator kills it

I couldn’t get past the 1st chapter. This may be a great book. I haven’t read or listened to a Michael Palmer book I haven’t liked, but, the narrator made it impossible to to listen to.

excellent as usual

enjoyed every moment. But narrator could not pronounce common words such as lovastatin. it was used several times and mispronounced every time. I'm not a medical professional, but it drove me crazy for a while. usually the author has the responsibility to correct the errors.
Over all,. Great Book. Well done. thanks Dr Palmer.

Great Book

If you are into medical books you will like this. Lots of action. I always like every Michael Palmer book I have read and this did not disappoint. Narrator did a great job which helps so much when listening to a book. I am just sorry that Michael has passed because he was such a good author.

Another great one!

I absolutely loves this book! Full of suspense, mystery, love and loss. This was a very nice reminder to never give up and to do what you know is right.
