Book 58: The First Patient by Michael Palmer

When Gabe Singleton's old friend calls on him one day what other choice does he have but to follow his old friend to Washington and become his personal doctor. It becomes a little more complicated since his old friend is the President of the United States. Gabe, who in the past has been in prison and who is a recovering alcoholic with a divorce in his past and a current addiction to pills, does just that and heads to Washington to replace Andrew's current doctor who has turned up missing.

Then things begin to get interesting. The President hasn't told him everything that is going on and then things get really crazy.

Wow - this book was really a wild ride. I loved the twists and turns and this is one of those books where the action never really stops and just when you think you might know who is behind it all - you might be really surprised. I know I was. With a little romance and a few other storylines, this book kept me hooked to the very last page. The characters were flawed but not too flawed to where you didn't like them, just enough where you can relate to them. Another great work by Michael Palmer.
