When a friendly, successful suburban teacher and father is prescribed cortisone for a painful, possibly fatal affliction, he grows dangerously addicted to the experimental drug, resulting in his transformation into a psychotic and ultimately violent household despot. "This Eisenhower-era throat-grabber, shot in expressive CinemaScope, is an excoriating take on the nuclear family. That it came in the day of Father Knows Best makes it all the more shocking -- and wildly entertaining."--Jacket

All across the American landscape strange illnesses, rare diseases, and sometimes the threat of contagion and even plague suddenly surface to bedevil an individual, a family, or a seemingly unrelated group of people. The local authorities can discover nothing in personal histories or public medical records with which to define and counteract the threat, and the race is on. FInd the clue that leads to the source of infection, and its destruction, before the victim worsens or the unknown and possible fatal disease threatens to spread. The author portrays some of the most significant and fascinating of those true life-and-death dramas. Volume II of the Medical Detectives brings together more of the very best of these modern classics in a memorable second collection gathered from the 1940s through 1984. -- Publisher description
