Diana Douglas: Doctor in Shadow
Doctor in Shadow by Diana Douglas was published by Signet in August 1967. Dr. Desmond Burton returns to San Francisco after being in London for 2 years. He finds that his older mentor can't and shouldn't be operating, his girlfriend gone, and a new nurse who could become a pawn in this triangle of problems.
Allan Kass creates a very green cover for this book! We see our couple standing near a pool of water. It's a touching scene with our doctor hero embracing the nurse heroine. I like it since it's one of Allan's earliest illustrations. Enjoy!
