There is a fine line between assisted-suicide and murder, and Dr. Marc Hobson, a physician psychiatrist, is torn in distinguishing between the two. Without laying a malicious finger on a patient, he is able to seal their doom. The telephone and his immense charisma are his accomplices. A pesky priest, himself no saint, is unaware that he is dealing with a sinner far worse than himself.
"The novel is tight, with no words wasted, in easy to read diary form. It truly refelcts a trust misplaced."
