Excellent! "With his wife, Evie, scheduled for surgery the next morning, Dr. Harry Corbett goes to the hospital for what he hopes will be a quiet evening of reconciliation... only to find his wife shockingly, inexplicably dead. The police suspect homicide and their only suspect is Dr. Harry Corbett". Another wonderful Palmer story line.
