I felt like the tone of this book changed. Partly because this explored Alex sans Milo. Snooping and getting way too involved yet again. To me this novel was another step to typical thriller. That said it was very enjoyable and the pacing good. There is some pluses and minuses to this book but still consistent with Jonathon Kellerman’s previous novels. The book does raise the question on the ethics of assisted suicide. The novel feels inspired by Dr. Kevorkian but leaves the ethics of physician-assisted suicide in the background. Overall I did enjoy the novel.
