|Novelist Dr. Michael Palmer, who helped popularize the genre of medical thrillers, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 in New York. He was 71. In the words of his son Daniel Palmer, the only thing Michael loved more than his family was writing books that thrilled, chilled, and made readers turn pages fast enough to get a blister. Tributes to Michael can be made to the Asperger’s Association of New England (AANE), an organization for which Michael deeply cared. RESISTANT, his 20th novel and the third installment in the Lou Welcome series will be released May 20, 2014 by St. Martin’s Press.
