Summary
Newly graduated, the young Dr. Thomas Parks expects to practice trauma medicine with an old family friend, John Haines, a distinguished doctor in Port McKinney, Washington. What Thomas does not expect is to be nearly killed within an hour of arriving at the town... The accident changes his life, and with long hours of painful convalescence, Thomas makes a sobering discovery: Dr. Haines, along with some others, is operating a lucrative mail-order diagnosis business, a scam. Terminally ill patients who will do almost anything for relief are being duped into completing a free diagnosis/consultation survey, and then paying for worthless medications, usually opiates, shipped through the mail. Outraged by this, Thomas tries to put an end to the deception, and at the same time discovers that the guilty parties have much more to protect than a fraudulent medical practice
