Alice Mariano has been found guilty of the assisted suicide of her lover David (also known as Smith) who she meet online.
.
Cate Austin is a probation officer whoโ€™s job it is to assess Alice and make recommendations for sentencing to present to the judge.

From the off Alice makes her views perfectly clear that she WILL NOT GO TO PRISON- as she is an advocate of assisted dying and she believes that she has carried out the wishes that David had requested.

Alice is a very complex individual. She didnโ€™t have the best start in life – she lost her mother at the age of 4 and was unloved.
Not only is she very clever and manipulative but she also has a bit of narcissism in her. She leads a very lonely and quite sad life. Does not have many people in her life.

Cate has the very difficult task of unpicking Alice, uncover her many layer. What makes her tick. What is slowly unearths is far from pleasant.

The book takes you on a journey of the past & present through Alicesโ€™ eyes. This is vital as it gives the reader the background to Alice and whether her past has effected her present.

The writing is sublime and Ruth Dundalk has achieved something quite remarkable – a book thatโ€™s very dark yet heartbreaking at the same time and it works. It also brings the taboo subject of assisted dying to the forefront.

This books moved at such a speed. I was utterly gripped from the very first page right to the end.

An amazing book and must read. Your unable to predict how this story will end.
