There he is teamed with a supremely confident vet who seemingly has gone through a large number of partners. Initially the novice is awed by the more experienced man's capabilities to deal with the high pressure situations they encounter. However, gradually he discovers that all is not as it seems.

Soon the younger man finds himself pulled into the same world and has to decide what direction he wants to take. Written by John Sacksteder See less
