Digger: The Doctor Will See You Now by Clifford Beck


Witnessing a terrible car accident on Portland's Congress St., Ryan becomes inspired to help others. The victim of an abusive father, he rises above his demons and earning a premed degree is accepted into UNE's medical program. All goes as planned, until the ghosts of his past return. And his subsequent instability results in his dismissal from school. But, Ryan has a plan to get back into the good graces of UNE and be readmitted.

So, retreating to a cabin in the woods near Lake Sebago, Ryan continues his medical education. But, even the best laid plans don't always work out as intended. And Ryan slips into the spiral of delusion, led by his new found fascination with death. But, some things are beyond escape. And as Ryan's mind marches down the road of deepening insanity, what he has referred to as 'work' becomes a gruesome act of control. Now, death has reached out a vengeful hand, arriving in the form not only unexpected, but utterly terrifying.
