If you could help someone in pain, would you?
Evan is a nurse, a suicide assistant. His job is legal...just. He's the one at the hospital who hands out the last drink to those who ask for it. Evan's friends don't know what he does during the day. His mother, Viv, doesn't know what he's up to at night. And his supervisor suspects there may be trouble ahead.
As he helps one patient after another die, Evan pushes against legality, his own morality and the best intentions of those closest to him, discovering that his own path will be neither quick nor painless. He knows what he has to do.
In this powerful novel, movingly narrated by Carolyn Shakespeare-Allen, award-winning author Steven Amsterdam challenges listeners to face the most taboo and heartbreaking of dilemmas. Would you help someone end their life?

written from truth
The scenes from a nurses perspective really rang true, palliation whilst not as final as nebitol is practiced at end of life all for the same reasons, to end extended suffering and poor quality of life. The ending where the old Viv had left and voided their pact, showed a reverance for life. Great book.
