Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 1/9/2011

    " Extreme Measures is an excellent medical thriller by Michael Palmer, who puts hack Robin Cook completely to shame. This book starts with an absolutely ghastly, unnerving scene, and then goes headlong into a thrilling plot. Each of his books raises a question about medical ethics. "
