THE PIPER'S TUNE by George Byram


Email this review


A pretty drastic drama of a doctor in a small Wyoming town opens with his breakneck crossing of a canyon to save a life, closes with his suicidal attempt to reach the victims of a plane crash in a blizzard, and fills in with the unsteadier aspects of his personal life. A man's man- but also a womanizer- his need for others- besides Kaye- had broken up his marriage, and brought him to this town where he had fallen in love with Helen, married to the weakling Bill. Hoping to leave Bill- for Byron, Helen is stayed by the knowledge that Bill may die- if she abandons him. When she reaches her decision, it is too late..... A first novel, heady and forthright, and a specific for rentals now, reprints later.
