About this title


A young doctor is coerced into assisting an older doctor with a complex operation conducted under a new form of anesthesia, called “Sacral Anesthesia.” The patient, a prominent citizen in the community, dies under mysterious circumstances during the operation. The young doctor is haunted by the death and,despite attempts to discourage further investigation, he persuades the coroner to allow him to take fluid from the anesthesia site. The fluid contains cyanideso the death precipitates a murder investigation. The seven immediate suspects include all five members of the operating room team. Immediately after announcing his finding, the doctor himself is poisoned and barely survives. Another death from cyanide occurs before the mystery is finally solved.

About the Author:

Frank Ellsworth Blaisdell,a graduate of Stanford Medical School, practiced medicine in Watsonville, California, a small town 100 miles south of San Francisco. After a number of years in general medicine, he took additional training and specialized in radiology. This story was based on his initial experience after entering the private practice of medicine in the early 1920’s. He had retired from radiology when he penned a mystery story--“The Phone Rang, But No-one Answered.” Frank William Blaisdell, also a graduate of Stanford University Medical School, was first a Professor of Surgery at University of California, San Francisco and then Professor and Chair of Surgery at U.C. Davis. He took his father’s original short story [never published], enlarged it and added to the complexity of the original plot using the original locale, a rural, coastal town in Northern California.
