Several months later, Dr. Sanfordís patient, Joyce Kennett, gives birth to a healthy boy, and Sanford prepares to make an announcement at a press conference. But before it convenes, Ms. Kennettís marginally- schizophrenic husband kills Dr. Hearn and then himself. Police Detective Bernie Baumgartnerís investigation is hampered by pressure from influential people at the University who want to control sensationalism that might harm the institution. Tenacious Baumgartner suspects more at play...
