Clayton Richards had it made. A brilliant young surgeon, he was engaged to the most beautiful girl in town. Success was in his hands when he discovered conditions at the hospital which shocked and repelled him. Clayton Richards had to make a choice. He could ignore the fee-splitting, the unnecessary surgery--or expose the mess and destroy innocent associates, ruin his career, his coming marriage and his life. Clayton Richards made his choice. Colleagues, fiancee, patients deserted him, leaving one friend and one woman--to stand at his side against the powers of evil and corruption.
