"Karl Kruger had been qualified as a doctor in Germany, but since his arrival in Australia he hadn't been registered. If, therefore, he operated on Riggs and Riggs died, he could find himself on a charge of manslaughter. But Riggs would die if he wasn't operated on, so, stranded as they were way out in the Simpson Desert, there was only one answer."
