Kellerman introduces us to "Dr. Death," who is a euthanasia champion and responsible for scores of assisted suicides. Now someone has chosen to kill the doctor by hooking him up to his own equipment and adding a touch of butchering of his own design. Milo Sturges, the Los Angeles Police Department homicide detective, calls on his friend Dr. Alex Delaware for assistance in catching the killer. Working this case bring Delaware into a conflict of interest problem. Delaware and Sturges disagree a lot here, and the conflict almost destroys their relationship. Meantime, one of the suspects in the murder is Dr. Death's own son. Another suspect is a psychopathic killer who relishes the geometry of death.

This is the usual good tale we expect from the reliable Jonathan Kellerman.
