9780099545842: The Second Opinion

Left for dead by a hit-and-run driver, Dr Petros Sperelakis' chances of survival are slim. But Petros' daughter Thea refuses to accept that her father might not survive his devastating injuries, even when her brothers insist that treatment be withheld. Having left the complex, money-driven dynamics of traditional medicine years ago, Thea's father's grievous injuries draw her unwillingly back into a world she despises. As she uncovers the secrets surrounding her father's collision, it becomes clear that it was no accident. But without proof, she can dig no deeper. Thea's investigation hits a dead end until one day, her father, the founder of a cutting-edge medical centre, opens his eyes and slowly begins to blink a terrifying message. Confronted with a conspiracy that infects the whole of the medical community, Thea soon finds that she is fighting for more than her father's life. She is also fighting for her own...

About the Author:

Michael Palmer, M.D., trained in internal medicine at Boston City and Massachusetts General Hospitals, spent twenty years as a full-time practitioner of internal and emergency medicine, and was an associate director of the Massachusetts Medical Society's physician health program. His books have been translated into thirty-five languages. He died in October 2013.


"Palmer, a medical-thriller writer who has been producing A-list-quality novels for years, turns in another excellent performance... As usual, the novel is fluidly written-as a stylist, Palmer is head and shoulders above his more famous competitor, Robin Cook-and very suspenseful. Another winner from a consistently fine writer."
