The Euthanist by Alex Dolan

The EuthanistThe Euthanist by Alex Dolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a book unlike any other I have read recently. Different story line, different approach to the subject matter and oh so thought provoking that I just had to continue to read this into the early hours.

I have just had a wisdom tooth out so was feeling pretty rotten so took the time to lay and read this. [Any excuse will do]

I really don't want to give any more away as lots of reviews have been given on this book that I cannot add to or it will be 'spoilers' so I am going to concentrate on how it made me feel.

Of course the Title of the book is what draws you in.

The Euthanist

So I kinda guessed what it was going to be about. However, I didn't know, had no idea, not the foggiest of how this subject matter was going to be addressed.

The actually round about terms this took halfway through the book was amazing, the complete turnaround had me turning my pages as I wasn't sure if....if.....was she.....or wasn't she...

Will he....or won't he.....

Like I say, its a read unlike any I have read recently that has hooked me right from the beginning to the end with me being utterly clueless.

Gotta be a 5 star.

In this auspicious debut, Alex Dolan announces himself as a virtuoso of psychological suspense and a rightful heir to masters of the genre like Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbott. A young woman helps to end the lives of people with terminal diseases, her reasons her own. When she helps the wrong person, she will be roped into a plot to gain vengeance on behalf of dozens. Her journey will make her question everything she ever thought she knew about herself. And the last life she ends may be her own.  
They know her as Kali. She is there to see them off into the afterlife with kindness, with efficiency, and with two needles. She’s been a part of the right-to-die movement for years, an integral member, complicit in the deaths of twenty-seven men and women, all suffering from terminal illnesses.

And she just helped the wrong patient.

Leland Moon has been with the Bureau for his entire career, but even as a respected agent, he was unable to keep his own son from being kidnapped on his way to school. When his boy finally came home, he told terrifying stories of his captors, and his nightmares haven’t stopped since.
Moon draws Kali into his mission, a mesmerizing cat-and-mouse game with two ruthless predators—one behind bars, one free—who hold the secrets that could bring comfort to the families of their victims. This powerful journey towards grace and towards peace will force both Leland and Kali to question everything they believe to be true and just.
