Listener Opinions

    " This particular book had the plot twist of a doctor who had been an alcoholic and drug user, who got rehabilitated and was finally accepted back at a large hospital--similar to another book I have recently read. Thia doctor gets into trouble when a terminal patient dies, though the deed has been done by a nurse who is a member of the Sisterhood, a group which plays God and deals with euthanasia, or just plain revenge. It starts out slowly, but gets rather exciting in the last third. "

    " It was a good medical mystery, predictable, easy read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 2/11/2014

    " Excellent, excellent story. I don't know when this was written, but my best guess would be the early 80s. A bit dated in some ways, but very tightly put together. I polished this one off in about two days. I'm thinking I may need to go back and read some of Palmer's other older titles. "

    " Might reconsider this at a different time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 2/4/2014

    " A highly suspenseful thriller just brimming with tension! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camila | 2/2/2014

    " I am a big fan of mysteries and I particularly enjoyed this one being that it was a medical mystery. Also, the author gave a lecture during my Addiction Medicine course which gives it that much more meaning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 1/21/2014

    " An interesting commentary on euthenasia. The author goes so far as to call it that rather than to keep referring to it as mercy killing. It also puts the main question of where the line is drawn for this kind of thing into focus. It was a good story. I had some of it figured out and other parts not so much, so it was as predictable as what I thought it was going to be. Some of it didn't contribute much to the overall story. I'd recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/18/2014

    " A bizarre, scary concept that was presented with too many characters and name changes for me. I enjoyed reading it, but by the end, I was still pretty confused and not sure who was who. "

    " First book by Dr. Palmer---excellent story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 11/23/2013

    " This was my first novel by Michael Palmer and I really liked it. I'm a big fan of Robin Cook and this reminded me a lot of some of his books. If you liked Coma you would probably like the Sisterhood. My having worked in a hospital for over 35 years makes me lean towards medical thrillers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karlin | 11/17/2013

    " Not as good as some of his other books, but an intersting topic of nurse assisted suicide "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/27/2013

    " A bit predictable but still with a few surprises. Murder mystery in hospital/medical setting makes for a good audiobook. "
