About this item
A massive cover-up gone awry
A prominent physician accused of murder
Uncovering the truth could put the entire country at risk
Dr. Gary McHugh, known around Washington, D.C. as the society doc, calls his longtime friend Dr. Lou Welcome in a state of panic, certain he is about to be arrested for murder. McHugh was found in an alcoholic blackout in his wrecked car after visiting a patient of his, the powerful Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Elias Colston. Soon after McHugh leaves, Colstons wife returns home to find her husband shot to death in their garage.
McHugh has no recollection of committing the crime and no one who would possibly believe in his innocence, other than Lou. As more facts come to light, even Lou has serious doubts. But something about McHughs story nags at him and as he looks into matters, pieces of the puzzle dont point to his friends guilt so definitively.
With the help of Sarah Cooper, an ambitious attorney with her own reasons for hating doctors, Lou finds himself at the center of a deadly, high-level conspiracy where the difference between right and wrong is a matter of interpretation, and the words whatever it takes have a chilling meaning. If Lou and Sarah dont uncover the real reasons Colston is dead, they may not survive themselves, and the entire country could be at risk for attacks that could destroy the very fabric of national security.
Once again, bestselling author Michael Palmer proves that he is the king of suspense in this page-turning thriller, Political Suicide, set at the crossroads of politics, the military, and medical science.
