After office hours one Friday, Denver neurosurgeon Kenneth P. Burres piled his examination table, waiting room furniture and some medical records onto a truck and set out for California--abandoning his practice. It was 1987, and he was fleeing a host of problems: a medical board investigation of malpractice suits against him, and financial and marital woes. He slipped out of town without warning his physician partner, his staff or his patients, according to Colorado medical board records.

Some of the most moving cities in the world are cities of the dead, worth a traveler's time for their art and history and the respite they provide as islands of green in the middle of strident modern cities of the living.
