Praise for The First Family:
"What makes this story shine is the mix of compelling characters and intriguing science...Daniel is as adept as his father was at finding suspense in the intricacies of medicine." ―Booklist
"Terrifying and all too plausible―Daniel Palmer continues his father's tradition of delivering authentic and high-velocity medical suspense. The combination of medical chills and high-level Washington make The First Family irresistible.” ―Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Paranoia and The Switch
"Palmer's The First Family gives you likable characters to root for, a top-notch villain, and enough excitement to make your hair curl. Have fun with this thriller." ―Catherine Coulter, author of The Devil's Triangle
“Double the trouble, twice the action, and quadruple the enjoyment, this is a high-octane game changer.” ―Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Bishop's Pawn and The Lost Order
“High-stakes and intelligent, The First Family is everything you want in a medical thriller. Chilling!”
―Robert Dugoni #1 Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author of My Sisters Grave
"The First Family is adrenaline-fueled entertainment that twists, turns, surprises and satisfies!” -John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author
"A Palmer novel transports you into the complex world of medical-legal-social ethics. The First Family doesn't disappoint, wrestling with the murky questions of what we can do versus what we should do. Gripping.” ―Kathy Reichs, New York Times bestselling author and creator of Bones
“Daniel Palmer’s latest thriller The First Family seamlessly blends genomics, politics, and life in the White House into a riveting potboiler of a story. If you crossed the best of Robin Cook’s medical mysteries with the insider authenticity of David Baldacci's political thriller, you’d end up with a book like this, a story that grabs you by the throat and won’t let go until the last page is turned.” ―James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Seventh Plague--This text refers to the mass_market edition.

Set in Washington, centering on the Presidents’ family. When the President’s son Cam starts showing vague signs of illness, the White House physician strangely doesn’t seem a bit concerned. Both the President and First Lady insist on a second opinion. Specifically, they ask for Dr. Lee Blackwood, a family physician with a practice based conveniently in Washington. He also just happens to be the ex-husband of Karen, part of the secret service detail protecting the first family. When Lee becomes alarmed at the symptoms the presidents’ son is presenting, he quickly concludes that Cam may not be the only one falling ill. Is there a great deal more to this illness than meets the eye? Is there a reason Cam was targeted? And who’s next?
Although built around an unusual premise, the plot never seemed too far fetched. The characters were relatable, and the suspense just kept increasing. I can’t wait to read more of Daniel Palmer’s/Michael Palmer's books, which are guaranteed to be unique page-turners.
Every time the book started to gain some momentum and it seemed like the stakes were about to get ratcheted up, there would be a lengthy detour into the characters discussing medical aspects of the case at length which, while it did certainly add an element of legitimacy and realism to the book, were quite frankly really boring to read and just killed the narrative pacing.
Overall, it was an okay read but I think it'd be better classified as a medical mystery than a medical thriller, as there wasn't any of the tight pacing and excitement that I expect in a thriller.
Go put on some fuzzy socks. Curl up in your favorite reading chair (or bed I don’t judge). Find a good blanket. Get some hot tea. Maybe some yummy chocolate. Settle in for a night of mystery and thrills. You won’t want to put this one down.
In my reviews , I don't rehash the book, give away spoilers , just give you my honest opinion as to whether it was worth my time to read and up the author's usual expectations . And in this case , as are all of Danel/Michael Palmer, it most definitely is!
