A massive cover-up gone awry
A prominent physician accused of murder
Uncovering the truth could put the entire country at risk
Dr. Gary McHugh, known around Washington, D.C. as the "society
doc," calls his longtime friend Dr. Lou Welcome in a state of
panic, certain he is about to be arrested for murder. McHugh was
found in an alcoholic blackout in his wrecked car after visiting a
patient of his, the powerful Chairman of the House Armed Services
Committee, Elias Colston. Soon after McHugh leaves, Colston's wife
returns home to find her husband shot to death in their garage.
McHugh has no recollection of committing the crime and no one who
would possibly believe in his innocence, other than Lou. As more
facts come to light, even Lou has serious doubts. But something
about McHugh's story nags at him and as he looks into matters,
pieces of the puzzle don't point to his friend's guilt so
With the help of Sarah Cooper, an ambitious attorney with her
own reasons for hating doctors, Lou finds himself at the center of
a deadly, high-level conspiracy where the difference between right
and wrong is a matter of interpretation, and the words "whatever it
takes" have a chilling meaning. If Lou and Sarah don't uncover the
real reasons Colston is dead, they may not survive themselves, and
the entire country could be at risk for attacks that could destroy
the very fabric of national security.
Once again, bestselling author Michael Palmer proves that he is
the king of suspense in this page-turning thriller, "Political
Suicide," set at the crossroads of politics, the military, and
