Summary
Dr. Lou Welcome has been supervising Dr. Gary McHugh, formerly a black-out drinker, through his work with the Physician Wellness Office. McHugh has been found unconscious in his wrecked car after visiting a patient of his, Congressman Elias Colston, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. Soon after McHugh awakens in the hospital, Colston's wife returns home to find her husband shot dead. She then admits that she had just broken off a long-standing affair with McHugh. McHugh claims that the Congressman was dead when he arrived. Lou agrees to look into matters, but what he finds makes him hard-pressed to believe McHugh -- until a high-level conspiracy begins to unravel
