Political Suicide by Michael Palmer is one of Palmer's 18 books, 17 of them being medical suspense. This one stars Dr. Lou Welcome, but is a political suspense. Lou's friendship with fellow doctor, Dr. Gary McHugh, gets him caught up in murder, high-level military conspiracy, and the possibility of losing his own life in his determination to save his friend.
What starts out as Lou trying to help a friend quickly turns into a race to save his own life, as well as the lives of many others, including the very people trying to kill him. The action moves at a whiplash pace. Each move that Lou makes seems to bring him closer to the megalomaniac out to rule the world, or at least the men under and around him.
Lou will have to do things and go places he's never done or gone before. He'll have to use his brain in areas having very little to do with medicine, discover he has brawn, and do things he never would have imagined he could do.
If you like fast-paced, action filled, the average man must save the world books, then you'll like Political Suicide by Michael Palmer.
I give Political Suicide a rating of Hel-of-a-Plot
Disclaimer: This book was sent to me by Michael Palmer's Marketing Manager. That in no way influenced my review. Even though I'm sure this book was written long ago, it seems to fit perfectly in with these political times and discontents.
