Editorial Reviews

Review

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

His book Extreme Measures was adapted into a movie starring Hugh Grant and Gene Hackman. His books have been translated into thirty-five languages.

Palmer earned his bachelor's degree at Wesleyan University, and he attended medical school at Case Western Reserve University. He trained in internal medicine at Boston City and Massachusetts General Hospitals. He spent twenty years as a full-time practitioner of internal and emergency medicine. In addition to his writing, Palmer was an associate director of the Massachusetts Medical Society Physician Health Services, devoted to helping physicians troubled by mental illness, physical illness, behavioral issues, and chemical dependency.

He lived in eastern Massachusetts.



DANIEL PALMER is the author of several critically-acclaimed suspense novels, including Delirious and Desperate. After receiving his master's degree from Boston University, he spent a decade as an e-commerce pioneer. A recording artist, accomplished blues harmonica player, and lifelong Red Sox fan, Daniel lives in New Hampshire with his wife and two children, where he is currently at work on his next novel.
