When Pierce Reisling and his partner Wal Hankins accept a consulting assignment at a local hospital, little do they realize that they'll soon find themselves in mortal peril. Pierce, a fastidious accountant, is already at odds with his ex-foreman partner who has a habit of finding problems where none exist.
