Dr. Lou Welcome, who supervises other doctors through the Physician Wellness Office, is shocked to discover that a friend and colleague might be mixed up in the homicide of a U.S. congressman. Not willing to accept that his friend is a murderer, Lou starts digging only to uncover a deadly conspiracy. If this all sounds a bit familiar, it’s because it’s pretty much the same story, with minor variations, as Oath of Office (2012), which introduced Welcome, a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, which explains why he’s not supervising other doctors with troubled histories. It’s not a bad book, but like its predecessor, it misses several opportunities for surprising plot twists and has the overall feeling of been-there, done-that (too many times). Palmer can be a talented and original storyteller, but of late his writing feels lethargic, and his stories repetitive and predictable. Devoted readers might enjoy this one, but it won’t win him any new fans. --David Pitt
“This is a definite keeper!” ―Amy Lignor in a review for Suspense Magazine
“It's a must-read for fans of political intrigue.” ―The Fort-Worth Star Telegram
“Michael Palmer once again delivers an adrenaline-pumped political and medical action thriller... Palmer fans will not be disappointed in this suspenseful and realistic, fast-paced whodunit.” ―The Jewish Journal
“When you open the pages of a Michael Palmer novel, you know you are in the hands of a pro. This author knows how to weave a plot and keep the action coming, and the readers know it won't all fall apart at the end. Such is definitely the case with Palmer's latest book, Political Suicide.” ―The Huffington Post

Welcome and the attorney assigned to the case initially clash but soon form a team to find out the truth behind the murder. There are too many one dimensional characters and cartoonish plot devices. Could have been better.
The writing is better than the story.
This book, however, left me wanting something more.
Although the main character was a doctor, this book deals more with politics and military intrigue than with the practice of medicine. The main character is likeable and there are some exciting developments, but the end is so implausable that it is almost ridiculous. I would not say that I would not read another of these political novels, I just much prefer the hospital to the political arena.
The 3 stars given is only because I have read so many of his other books and even different authors from this genre. I would still recommend this to other readers.
