Suspense – The Kettler Method
The story begins in an isolated sanitarium located in upstate New York. It is night, and there is a dramatic rainstorm outside. All of the patients are restless but one, named Kettler, seems particularly upset. Dr. Kettler, once a famous brain surgeon, had to be institutionalized after performing an unsuccessful operation. He is convinced that the patient he operated on is still alive and that, in truth, the operation was a success. It is his reasoning that the other doctors locked him away because of their jealousy of his innovative technique, the “Kettler Method.”
