"A Prescription to Kill" is a spellbinding mystery/thriller that explores the indistinct, darker edges of physician-assisted suicide. Carrie Williams, a brilliant, young medical resident, is assigned to a small town hospital in northern Oregon, the only state in the Union where physician-assisted suicide is legal. She's tall, a little over six feet, confident in her medical abilities, and can be strikingly beautiful when she wants to be. But when a sophisticated-looking physician asks for her help with an assisted suicide, initial curiosity and intrigue are replaced by horror as she realises that he's not who he says he is, and that she's been used as a tool for murder.Carrie is stripped of her hospital privileges, threatened with the loss of her medical license, and becomes a person of interest in a homicide investigation. Then when she finds her apartment ransacked and her friend murdered she realises that her life is in danger and that she could be next on the killer's list. This is a masterful novel from the "Seattle Times" best-selling author of "Cube 6".
