Master of scalpel-sharp suspense, New York Times best-selling author Michael Palmer brings his unique experience as an emergency room physician to each of his sensational thrillers. In The Patient, he creates a beautiful neurosurgeon from Boston who must treat a cold-blooded killer or forfeit the lives of hundreds of innocent victims. Dr. Jesse Copeland is experimenting with ARTIE, a tiny robot designed to remove previously inoperable brain tumors. When a notorious terrorist-suffering from a deadly tumor-hears the news, he orders Jesse to use ARTIE to heal him. But the bio-engineering device isn't ready for surgery, and even worse, Jesse's infamous new patient demands a complete recovery, or his followers will set off Boston's worst nightmare. Michael Palmer injects authentic details and spine-tingling terror into this chilling novel. Narrator Paul Hecht places you on the scene at Eastern Massachusetts Medical Center as Dr. Jesse Copeland pioneers a medical breakthrough.

"Take one assassin with an inoperable brain tumor. Add the latest in biotech robotics and its creator, the one neurosurgeon who might save him. Mix in a defrocked CIA agent with a grudge, and you have only a few of the ingredients in this delicious plot. Paul Hecht's powerful voice positively sizzles. Hypnotic in its intensity, his performance allows the nail-biting nightmare to unfold. Hecht delivers each complex character and intricate scene with confidence. With a final sequence somewhere between a video game and a roller coaster ride, Michael Palmer's ninth medical thriller leaves us gasping. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
