Get ready for the next big thing.
Get ready to meet the Death Angels.
We've all been there. A loved one or a dear friend becomes desperately ill or is tragically injured. Someone - maybe even you - says, "If that ever happens to me, I wish someone would just . . . kill me."
What if you could choose when to die? But once you decide, you can't change your mind - ever.
Welcome to the next step in the evolution of suspense fiction, an in-your-face/what-would-you-do topical thriller. Kill Me is a brilliantly conceived roller-coaster ride that zeros in on some of the most contentious issues of our time.
Kill Me brings Alan Gregory face-to-face with the most challenging case of his career. As always, White's characters are indelible and the dialogue is dead-on, but Kill Me is fresh and thought-provoking in a way that's so uncommon in crime fiction. Kill Me delivers on all the promise of White's earlier work and then raises the bar in an unforgettably inventive tale of life and death. This is the book that you won't be able to stop listening to, but more to the point, this is the book that won't go away. Listeners will be asking each other: "What would you do? If you could sign up - really - would you?"

"Bizarre, thrilling, and oh so much fun." (Booklist)
"A thinking person's thriller." (Jeffery Deaver)
"Hill masters the quirky moments of this thriller with just the right amount of irony and dread." (AudioFile)
This book was not written from Alan Gregory's viewpoint. It was about a philosophy of death that may have occurred to all of us -- but would have never had the courage to implement. I was tied to the book for the entire second half. Since I listen to the books, I can also comment on Dick Hill's narration. It has improved greatly since the first Alan Gregory book in the series.
I could tell after listening to about 30 minutes of the book what was going to happen. I'd rather be surprised. Not many surprises in it. Most of the characters were unlikeable, especially the main one. Men will probably like him more than women. He's rich, powerful, handsome, and very arrogant. I can see how this book could easily be made into a movie. Seems like the author had that in mind when writing it.
