Karl C. Klontz. Stand at Bay (2003) 245 pp. [tpo]
Publisher’s description: “Either Troy Simon has the inside scoop on a dirty case of medical malpractice or he has unearthed a document that implicates the hospital in an insidious scheme to develop a pristine tract of land. In either case, the twenty-four-year-old medical student is forced to abandon his studies and run for his life. His fight keeps him in the cross hairs of an unyielding plot to end his life as he bolts from the San Francisco Bay Area to the Sierras and on to a remote Caribbean island.”
