George F. Worts' classic courtroom dazzler, The Hospital Homicides Murder Case, begins with a literal bang when the lawyer-sleuth bumps into a frightened young woman buying tickets at the airport. The mystery deepens when Gillian is called in to change the Will of eccentric millionaire physician, Hobart Creed, who has decided to leave his new $15,000,000 clinic to brilliant, idealistic surgeon, Dan Starbuck. Their conference is interrupted by a phone call telling Dr. Creed that ghosts have been seen at his hospital.

Investigating for Creed, Gillian meets and likes Dr. Starbuck. He also encounters Dr. Hoyle, the hospital's chief anesthetist; strong-willed, attractive surgeon Claudia Barnum; sardonic, scar-faced physician, Howard Tichman; nurse Nancy Green, who claims to have seen the ghost; and Carolyn Kelly, the night nurse, who Gillian recognizes as the woman he bumped into at the airport.

He is also introduced to Hannah Starbuck, Dan's wealthy, aged aunt, who is suffering from a serious heart ailment. Within hours, Dr. Hoyle is found murdered in his office, and Hannah Starbuck has succumbed after being treated by her nephew. When it is learned that Dan Starbuck and Carolyn Kelly have eloped for Mexico (where there is no extradition treaty), and that his knife was found in Dr. Hoyle's back, district attorney Mark Storm grounds the plane and slaps the young surgeon in a cell, charged with murder.

In the courtroom, a string of damaging witnesses come forward against Starbuck, accusing him of alcoholism, drug addiction and malpractice in the death of patients. Gillian doesn't doubt the young doctor's innocence, but as the trial draws to a close and the net grows tighter around his client, even the canny attorney begins to wonder if he can find a loophole or uncover a clue that will save Dan Starbuck from the electric chair in time.
