I Never Could Put His Books Down


1315590125-mpalmerMichael Palmer kept me reading.  It was a given that once I started a Michael Palmer novel I would not stop reading until the story ended. That made him, in my opinion, a really good writer.  We might complain that his medical thrillers weren’t sufficiently erudite for the sophisticated literary palate and for some people that might have been a legitimate complaint.  I didn’t care and neither did my palate.  He knew how to tell a story and he knew how to keep us reading that story until he said it was time to stop.  That’s enough for me.  I will miss his stories.  And the world lost a good story teller. – Mary Walker Baron
