Plausible story! Holds your interest start to finish. Fast paced..

This book examines the sensitive topic of euthanasia. Dr. David Shelton, a little brash, easy to dislike, and recovering from a personal crisis that has caused a career setback, gets his chance to advance when he's asked to cover for another surgeon scheduled to go out of town. Unfortunately for David, this brings him into contact with the Sisterhood of Life, a shadowy group of nurses who take it upon themselves to decide who should live and who should die; and their even more frightening corollary group The Garden, a subset of The Sisterhood that's gotten into euthanasia for profit. When one of the patients David is caring for is "helped" by the Sisterhood, David is accused of the crime and the plot takes off.The book moves well and has some interesting and surprising twists. It's a little cliche, which isn't unusual for a first novel, and reading it in 2010 it's really quite dated - you could almost see the lava lamps and hear Laugh-In on the TV (only 3 stations, of course!) in the background. Sill, it's a good read and worth picking up if you like medical mysteries.

I haven't read a Palmer in several years, and going back to his earlier works did not disappoint.

I read it in two days. While this was not my favorite Palmer book, it was a very good one and I absolutely recommend it to his fans and fans of the genre. Kept me up determined to finish - well worth my time.

Palmer masterfully aligns the most merciful and altruistic ideals regarding euthanasia against the evil traits of power and greed.

Always suspected there was a group like the "Sisterhood"!
