Synopsis: This book finds Dr David Campbell back at his teaching hospital in Edinburgh, in a temporary job involving the evaluation of a new 'miracle' drug. The duties are not arduous, and leave time for a girlfriends or two, a rediscovery of the delights of pub life, and a gentle first shot at the exam for membership of the Royal College of Physicians. However, when an elderly doctor taking the drug starts to display curious and embarassing symptoms, Campbell is introduced to a strange and baffling world of crazy scientists, flashy salesmen, and senior consultants who seem to have unreasonable priorities.
