I’d already thought through this plenty. I wouldn’t have committed to this work without knowing why I was doing it. “I remove suffering… It’s the difference between compassion and execution. If you can’t see that, you really don’t understand what I do.”
Kali helps people die. They always have time to change their mind, but most of them don’t. They just want their agony to end. But then, Kali meets Leland, and she is forced to think about the morality of what she does. Are all those suffering also dying? Or is she willing to help those who are suffering in different ways? Can she use her unique skills to help get revenge on those most deserving?
The Euthanist has it all: twists, kidnapping, torture, serial killers, and an ending so intense that there’s no way you will see it coming. A psychological thriller on par with Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places and a fantastic debut from author Alex Dolan.
I was provided an Advance Reader Copy of The Euthanist from Diversion Books in exchange for an honest review.
