loss of thriller writer Michael Palmer.
was a unique voice
in a genre that brought us face to face with the hidden nuances of
medicine. His books, "medical thrillers," kept many of us up late at
night wondering if we would ever go to the doctor again.
He was good to us at VJ Books. He will be sadly missed, as
his unique voice leaves us when we can't help but wonder how he would
have reported on the future of medicine here and around the world.
Farewell all. You have given a lifetime of entertainment.
