A physician accused of murder. A massive cover-up. An entire nation at risk…In Political Suicide, New York Times bestselling author Michael Palmer once again delivers a stunning page-turner set at the crossroads of politics, the military, and medical science.

Dr. Gary McHugh, known around Washington, D.C. as the "society doc," calls his longtime friend Dr. Lou Welcome in a state of panic. A patient of his, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Elias Colston, has been found shot to death in his home—soon after McHugh paid him a visit.

"OUTSTANDING"—Suspense Magazine

Did McHugh kill Colston? He has no recollection of committing a crime because, later that same night, McHugh wrecked his car in an alcoholic stupor. As more facts come to light, Lou has serious doubts about his friend's innocence. But something about McHugh's story still doesn't add up…and soon a shocking truth is revealed.

"Plenty of chills and spills."—Kirkus Reviews

With the help of Sarah Cooper, an ambitious attorney with her own reasons for mistrusting doctors, Lou enters a dangerous game of cat and mouse and finds himself at the dead center of a conspiracy—one that extends to the highest levels of government, and could destroy the very fabric of national security.

"Palmer writes terrific medical suspense, and he has thrown political intrigue into the mix."—Associated Press
