Joe is being sued for malpractice in connection with the death of a four-year-old girl. The child was the niece of the wealthiest man in town, and the trial isn't going well. Then it gets worse. While Joe is sitting in his car outside his lawyer's office, someone shoots at him, and the police seem convinced that he has faked the shooting, especially since the shot was fired with his own gun. The next day in court, Joe realizes that his patient's death was not an accident or malpractice - it was murder. When one of the plaintiffs is murdered, Joe becomes the prime suspect. He must use all of his medical knowledge and deductive reasoning to solve the crime and save his own life.
