|ill as Directed (1963)
Competent, respectable practitioner of the time-honored art of medicine, Dr.Harry Brown - failure! Until the day old man Gresham, with his bum ticker, his millions, and his voluptuous young spouse, hired Harry as his doctor. Then it was money, luxury- and love. But what happens to a doctor when someone slips a corpse into his locked apartment? What can a man say when he finds himself a member of an organized crime ring? How can Harry tell his richest patient he's having an affair with the man's wife? It's enough to give a man a heart attack. But which man?
The perfect weapon
Kurt Gresham smiled again. "You were the sucker. You
were the patsy in the middle. The expendable man. And they couldn't wait."
