Ben Cowper, an attending psychiatrist at the prestigious New York-Episcopal Hospital, is stunned to learn the identity of the emergency patient he's just been assigned to treat: Harry Shapiro, a Wall Street colossus and one of Episcopal's most prominent donors. But a high-profile reversal of fortune has left the once powerful investment banker jobless, bitter, and possibly desperate--judging by the handgun his wife finds him clutching. In Ben's expert opinion, Shapiro is a suicide waiting to happen. But when the headstrong financier balks at an extended stay in the hospital psych ward, Ben reluctantly releases him, bowing to political pressure from Episcopal's chief administrator, who's more concerned with the patient's money than his mind.
