Plot Summary

In an effort to relieve the suffering of surgery patients, Dr. Thomas Bolton painstakingly develops an opium-based anesthetic, to which he gradually becomes addicted. In order to provide a continual supply of chemicals to continue his experiments and support his addiction, he falls in with a den of murderers who use his signature to sell cadavers to the local hospital.

Quotes Mr Blount: A good day's work, Bolton! You're getting faster all the time. Beats me how you do it!
Dr. Bolton: [Bitterly] No matter how fast I still can't save them!
Mr Blount: Yes, most distresing, but, alas, inevitably you can't have operations without screams. Pain and the knife, they're inseparable!
Dr. Bolton: I beg to differ. Someday surgery must and will be made painless.
