Four murders.

THE LAST SURGEON

Michael Palmer?s latest novel pits a flawed doctor against a ruthless psychopath, who has made murder his art form. Dr. Nick Garrity, a vet suffering from PTSD?post traumatic stress disorder?spends his days and nights dispensing medical treatment from a mobile clinic to the homeless and disenfranchised in D.C. and Baltimore. In addition, he is constantly on the lookout for his war buddy Umberto Vasquez, who was plucked from the streets by the military four years ago for a secret mission and has not been seen since.

Psych nurse Gillian Coates wants to find her sister?s killer. She does not believe that Belle Coates, an ICU nurse, took her own life, even though every bit of evidence indicates that she did?every bit save one. Belle has left Gillian a subtle clue that connects her with Nick Garrity.

Together, Nick and Gillian determine that one-by-one, each of those in the operating room for a fatally botched case is dying. Their discoveries pit them against genius Franz Koller--the highly-paid master of the ?non-kill??the art of murder that does not look like murder. As Doctor and nurse move closer to finding the terrifying secret behind these killings, Koller has been given a new directive: his mission will not be complete until Gillian Coates and Garrity, the last surgeon, are dead.

From the Back Cover:

New York Times bestselling author Michael Palmer delivers a pulse-pounding thriller about a doctor-hero who heals broken lives and the chilling psychopath who targets him as his ultimate kill.

Surgeon Nick Garrity, a vet suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, spends his days and nights dispensing medical treatment from a mobile clinic to the homeless in D.C. and Baltimore. In addition, he is constantly on the lookout for his best friend who was recruited for a secret military mission four years ago, never to be seen again. Then there's the case of Belle Coates, an ICU nurse who appears to have killed herself?but left a subtle clue for her sister, Jillian, that connects her with Nick.

"Highly suspenseful and compelling."--Booklist

Now it's up to Nick and Jillian, a psychiatric nurse, to find out what really happened. Together, they determine that everyone involved in one specific surgical case is mysteriously dying, one by one... Soon their discoveries will pit them against Franz Koller, the highly paid assassin who specializes in the art of the "non-kill"--murder that does not look like murder. And Nick and Jillian are slated to be the next victims?

"THE LAST SURGEON is the kind of book you read with a bright light on and all the doors locked. Franz Koller is one of the most deadly villains to grace the pages of a novel since the introduction of Hannibal Lecter."--Huffington Post
