Meanwhile, Dr. Pepper is preoccupied with a mysterious threat from his past, then badly injured in an apparent fall. While he recuperates, Abby finds herself taking over much of the clinic work while they provide a home for Pepper’s troubled teenage niece and an adopted stray dog. The story rushes to a frantic and terrifying conclusion when a desperate criminal attacks Abby in her own home.
