The lure of the petrodollar takes Dr. Linda Oakes to King’s Hospital at Al Lubna in Saudi Arabia. The repressive atmosphere and the stress of being constantly under surveillance by the religious police, is taking its toll. Dr. Zafar the Head of her department is making life difficult for her. He is hailed in the community as a devout man, totally committed to the tenets of his religion. But Linda sees through this garb of hypocrisy and discovers the crime he commits to hide his nefarious activities. She has the cooperation of the Medical Director who is half British, and therefore looked down upon as a kafir.
