More > he is faced with a crisis that will test his abilities nearly to the breaking point. An incredibly close person is stricken with an inoperable tumor inside his head that will kill him in months, or an operation might do it sooner.

But Doc himself refuses to consider the treatment Tom has in mind when he finds what the inventor proposes is more like a living video game that serious surgery. Is possible to convince him to let Tom—an unskilled surgeon at the very best—perform the life-saving procedure? And, can Tom rally his emotional and physical strength long enough to make the operation a success?< Less
