    Gripping Medical Thriller

    I received a copy from NetGalley and St Martin’s Press I’ve always LOVED Michael Palmer. This is the first book I’ve read by Daniel and boy does he follow in Michael’s footsteps. I’m so happy to see the legacy lives on. It was interesting that the patient is the presidents 16 year old son, Cam. A long time secret service agent, Karen, who guards him has concerns about his well being when he becomes withdrawn and lashes out at times. The White House physician just thinks he needs a psychiatrist. Karen calls her ex husband, Lee, who is a doctor, for a second opinion. It’s chilling at what the outcome is. Don’t want to spoil it so I can’t tell. Working in the medical field, this story really sucked me in. It’s chilling to think this could really happen. It’s not too far fetched. My favorite part was how the role and lifestyle of a family physician was explained. People hear “doctor” and automatically think money, when the sad truth is, this day in time, a family physician does good to make ends meet after paying overhead. The ones left practicing are owned by big hospitals and are encouraged to refer everyone to specialists. The ones who truly are in it for the patients give so much of their time for free and also a lot of their services for free. It’s even worse in areas that are 80% Medicare population like here. But I guess I got off the subject here. Read the book, you won’t be disappointed if you love a good medical mystery.

    Great story!!!

    As always, another great medical thriller from Daniel/Michael Palmer. I love the way you give us insights into the medical field. The story line and the suspense usually get me in trouble. I often spend more time in your books than I have allotted. 😂😂😂 Daniel, having read most of your father’s books, I can wholeheartedly say he is very proud of the way you are continuing his legacy. 💙💙💙 (No, I am not related. Just happen to have the same last name. 🙂)

    Descriptive, entertaining, and action packed!

    The First Family is a scientifically intriguing medical thriller that takes you into the heart of the White House and delves into the effects of alternative medicine, training, and practice on higher-level cognitive skills. The writing is crisp. The characters are intelligent, protective, and relentless. And the plot is an engaging tale about greed, corruption, friendship, politics, mysterious illnesses, violence, and murder. The First Family doesn’t keep you on the edge of your seat or feature a lot of suspense, but it’s still a compelling read that fans of stories filled with Secret Service drama, medical analysis and scientific jargon will definitely enjoy.
