Rated 4 out of 5 by from An ethical twist in a medical thriller This was a good solid bit of medical mystery by Palmer. Instead of the usual one-level plot, there's an extra twist - what if a group of nurses believed in ending true hopeless suffering, and would "assist" the moving on of patients who would never recover any kind of quality of life? In and of itself, an interesting topic for a novel, Palmer goes one step further and plants murder and confusion in the hospital, where ever this Sisterhood isn't sure who is behind it all, and the hero of the tale is left wondering if he'll make it out alive. Well paced, and interesting.
