This book is about a small town country doctor who discovered that hospital funds were being stolen and excessive prices were being paid for supplies and operating expenses, to generate kick backs paid to hospital officials. Shortage of funds was being blamed for lack of equipment, putting patient's lives in jeopardy. Who was responsible? The richest man in town, who ran the hospital board and owner of the largest industry in the community, as well as owner of the banks, the newspaper, the radio station, the local judges, the district attorney and the police. He also had a piece of the President of the United States, Jimmy Carter. The trouble at the hospital was compelling but when he discovered that his patients and other employees of the town ruler were being poisoned with lead, causing 3 deaths, he had to act, by exposing to the public and beyond the local community what was going on. By doing so he exposed himself and his family to the wrath of the "King" and faced disgrace and destruction. The "King" used the law and they knew how to do it, plant drugs on the sone and arrest him. When the country doctor came to the rescue of his son, he fell into their trap.(Publisher). Fair.
