My Rating: 5 Stars Experience a heart-pumping and thrilling tale of suspense!

Originally published in THRILLER (2006), edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author James Patterson. In this Thriller Short, a collaborative medical thriller, New York Times bestselling writer Michael Palmer teams with his son Daniel Palmer, a bestselling author in his own right. “We have your son. The picture enclosed is not a fake, this is not a hoax, and we cannot be bought.” What comes next is a tight, twisty tale rooted in conflict that runs the gamut of emotions. In Maura Hill, the Palmers create a strong-willed hero who bounces right back up, no matter how many times she’s knocked down.

Review to follow.

A riveting new medical thriller from the critically acclaimed novelists.
