First edition. "Victim of medical malpractice returns as vengeful spirit to expose guilty surgeons. Most interesting passages concern discovery of hidden valley in Hawaii ruled by a religious zealot. Vaguely dystopian, a seeming paradise exposed as corrupt. Author was a noted x-ray pioneer, bitter foe of medical establishment. Novel serves mostly as vehicle for tirades against surgeons, politicians, spiritualists, 'the welter of blood called religion, the rule of thieves called patriotism,' and much more besides. He occasionally moves the story along too, between rants." - Robert Knowlton. Reginald 13701. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Stine's engraved calling card presenting this copy to an unnamed recipient is tipped onto the front free endpaper. A fine copy. (#150866). N° de réf. du libraire 150866
