Summary
Reckless playboy Bob Merrick crashes his speedboat, requiring emergency attention and the use of the town's only resuscitator--at the very moment that beloved local Dr. Phillips has a heart attack and dies waiting for the life-saving device. Bob and the doctor's widow, Helen, find themselves inextricably linked amid a series of increasingly wild twists, turns, trials, and tribulations.--Container
