Can a successful doctor, one who scoops parasitic masses and embedded nails out of patients’ brains, save his own daughter’s life? Even Danny Tilson’s neurosurgical skills, his paramedic best friend, and his stable family life cannot prevent Danny’s asthmatic daughter from suddenly dying.
While reeling from this first tragedy, Danny falls prey to an alluring and calculating seductress who has wheedled her way into his OR through deceit and trickery, and to her Chesapeake Bay retriever, who is all innocence to her conniving. Vulnerable and shaken, Danny makes all the wrong choices for the love of this aqua eyed lady.
Danny’s torrid affair conjures up a gaggle of Tennessee attorneys who pursue him as he turns vagrant with the roguish retriever. But in the backwoods of Tennessee? The plot thickens to payback the woman who left in a hurry.
