Description
Master of scalpel-sharp suspense, New York Times best-selling author Michael Palmer brings his unique experience as an emergency room physician to each of his sensational thrillers. In The Patient, he creates a beautiful neurosurgeon from Boston who must treat a cold-blooded killer or forfeit the lives of hundreds of innocent victims. Dr. Jesse Copeland is experimenting with ARTIE, a tiny robot designed to remove previously inoperable brain tumors. When a notorious terrorist-suffering from a deadly tumor-hears the news, he orders Jesse to use ARTIE to heal him. But the bio-engineering device isn't ready for surgery, and even worse, Jesse's infamous new patient demands a complete recovery, or his followers will set off Boston's worst nightmare. Michael Palmer injects authentic details and spine-tingling terror into this chilling novel. Narrator Paul Hecht places you on the scene at Eastern Massachusetts Medical Center as Dr. Jesse Copeland pioneers a medical breakthrough.

display_descriptionHis name is ARTIE, a miracle of bio-engineering that is about to transform the field of neurosurgery. Dr. Jessie Copeland knows him better than anyone else at Eastern Mass Medical Center- and knows it's too soon to be using the tiny robot on a living patient's brain. But, Jessie's department chief is too busy to worry about such ethics. And neither of them has any idea that ARTIE will attract a patient from their worst nightmares.
Claude Malloche is a master assassin, more rumor than man, for whom murder is an art. No one can identity his face. Now Malloche has a deadly brain tumor, and he intends to have the best neurosurgeon in the world operate on it.
To ensure Jessie's cooperation, Malloche has devised a plan of intimidation that puts at risk her life and the lives of hundreds of innocent people. Neurosurgery requires nerves of steel, but in coming up with a scheme to fulfill her oath as a doctor while thwarting a diabolical killer, Jessie will be performing the most complex surgery of her career- on a knife-edge of terror.
