Miracle Cure --- by --- Michael Palmer.
Wow! Like this is this story about this doctor, see. Except he starts taking his own drugs until he’s booted out of the doctor’s club. For just a little while, see. Then he becomes a doctor again, a really good one. So this hospital gives him a doctoring job and everything is fine until he figures out the big bad hospital has hopped into bed with a big bad hospital and both of them are faking the results of test trials of this super new drug.
So this book is written by this author who’s also written a whole bunch of other books I want to read.
And so there’s this novel that’s really fun to read. It kinda makes you get p.o.’d about the drug company that’s owned by this Russian mafia. I got p.o.’d at drug companies, Russia, the mafia, hoodlum hospital C.O.s and a whole bunch of other things.
You gotta, like, read this book ‘cause it’ll like make you p.o.’d.

Enjoyed this book thoroughly. Didn't give it the full 4 stars only because I recently read another book of his that was somewhat similar.

I really like the way he develops his characters in simple and subtle ways. As thrilling as his stories are, it's my feeling for the characters in this book that kept me thinking about it when I put it down.

Just how far will Dr. Brian Holbrook go to redeem himself at the Boston hospital where he works? He is asked to join a medical team where an experimental drug promises to save heart patient's lives. But the drug proves far more dangerous to patients than first realized. It is up to Holbrook to uncover the lie behind what looks like a miracle. I like Palmer's novels because he has the background to create a plausible setting. This is a fast thrilling read with the theme of questionable medical ethics at the core.
