The Last Surgeon
The New York Times bestselling author and master of medical suspense delivers another shocker of a thriller filled with insider details and a terrifying psychopath
An eerie scene with the death of an innocent begins this new Michael Palmer thriller. Dr. Nick Garrity returns from war suffering from PTSD after witnessing the death of his fiancée. Struggling daily with his own trials, Dr. Garrity treats patients out of an urban mobile medical facility helping those without any other access to medical care. Strange deaths and missing persons create a bond between Nick and a psychiatric nurse, Gillian Coates, and together they work through the secrets, dangers, and government red tape until they find the truth.
I confess that I am already a fan of Michael Palmer’s books, so it not surprising that I enjoyed his latest book. The Last Surgeon has the perfect balance of storytelling and dialog. The main character of Nick is complex, damaged, and interesting. He struggles with his memories of a horrifying incident at war. He not only works to improve his own life with PTSD, but helps others get the disability help they need.
The story was at times very intense. As an example, as a wounded and weak Dr. Garrity was lowering himself down a rock cliff, I felt like I was climbing down with him and I wasn’t sure we were going to make it! Another aspect of the book that I enjoyed was the change in Nick as the relationship developed between with Gillian.
Some readers may be sensitive to the violence - but then this is an adventure/ thriller and can be expected to have some carnage. I recommend The Last Surgeon to readers who enjoy fast-paced adventure/thriller stories and medical mysteries.
