Ackley Hornsby is a brilliant author whose best-selling novels attack big business pharmaceutical companies. Ackley is also a hopeless hypochondriac who suffers from 357 physical ailments and refuses to leave his apartment. Although he is in no danger of dying from a physical ailment, Ackley is in jeopardy of being murdered as the release of his newest book is announced. Ackley's literary agent warns him of death threats being phoned into his agency, as a mysterious woman from Ackley's past resurfaces after many years. Ackley struggles to keep his identity a secret, and to protect his greatest work, a manuscript called Bad Medicine.
