About the Book
Set in a fictional coastal Georgia town, an ophthalmologist in practice for some thirty years faces financial ruin because a young, aggressive eye surgeon has come to town and built a huge, ostentatious clinic. Using massive advertising, a well-trained staff, and a network of cooperative optometrists, the latter surgeon has sucked up all the eye business in the area, and does cataract surgery on everyone his operatives can convince to have the procedure, whether needed or not. The older surgeon finds he canít compete with such forceful tactics and faces the biggest crisis of his life.

Every facet of the younger surgeonís practice is designed to make money, regardless of whether a service is needed or not. He exhibits strong superstition and pattern behavior as a manifestation of demonic control over his life. He also is a womanizer and an avid sailor, and uses his personal sailboat as the means to take a succession of women, most of them associated with his practice, on weekend outings. An unhappy patient with a poor surgical outcome creates an environment that spawns a lawsuit by the younger surgeon against the older one. This concurrently gives the younger surgeon an idea to eliminate his unwanted wife, whom he has been unwilling to divorce because it would split his considerable assets and hamper his lofty financial goals. Dealings with a drug lord lead to a massive influx of money for the unethical doctor, as he uses his sailboat to transfer drugs from a ship offshore to the mainland, where he has good connections to law enforcement that keep him safely from scrutiny.

Woven into the plot behind the scenes is an ongoing battle between good and evil, personified by the activities of numerous angels and demons.
