By the time of his death, Dr. The novel, Extreme Measures, which was his fourth novel would be turned into a movie in 1996. The starring in the movie was Hugh Grant and Gene Hackman. He made a very successful sale of five million books in the entire world. According to Dr. Palmer, he started writing at the very base of his life. In the 1970s, he had undergone a series a knee surgery. Together with divorce, the two issues disturbed him to a point of desperation.
Palmer’s best novel in years is a highly suspenseful story that begins with a murder staged to look like a suicide and ends with the exposure of a far-reaching conspiracy. Palmer keeps his two leads-and us, too-in the dark for a good portion of the book, dispensing the occasional tantalizing hint of some horrible secret lying just below the surface. When we discover the truth behind the mystery, we’re shocked and exhilarated and bewildered, all at the same time. Palmer has always spun a good yarn, but this one is more compelling and features more engaging characters than some of his recent efforts.
Struck down by a hit-and-run driver, one of the world's most respected doctors lies comatose in the ICU unit of Boston's Beaumont Clinic. No one thinks he will survive. Two of his children believe treatment should be stopped. But his daughter Thea refuses to give up hope―and begins to suspect a cover-up. As a brilliant physician who left the hospital to work with the poor, Thea knows all too well the hidden agendas and personal conflicts that lurk beneath the surface of an elite medical center. When a late-night hospital intruder is identified as a professional killer, Thea is convinced her father's accident was no accident―and someone plans to finish the job…
Who would want to kill a man who saves lives―and why? The answers, Thea fears, are locked deep inside the mind of the only living witness―her father―a man who cannot move or speak. Until the flutter of a single eyelid provides him the means to communicate…and offers Thea a terrifying glimpse into an unfathomable conspiracy.
