In this highly acclaimed, spellbinding novel, journalist Laurie Best investigates reports of retirement home residents being euthanized and must decide if there's ever a time when life is no longer worth living. A fascinating, attention grabbing novel dealing with tough, real-life situations. Tucked into green hills of Oregon's winding coast, inside an elite retirement community far from prying eyes, people are beginning to disappear. According to unconfirmed reports, the residents are being systematically euthanized. quot;Led like sheep to the slaughterquot; is how old Joe, with his Adam's apple waddling in the loose skin of his neck, put it. Reporter Laurie Best remains unconvinced. She's the one investigating their claims. For all she knows they're senile - flaky as dry crackers. Besides, this is a right to life issue and she's pro-abortion. Crippled minds only take up valuable space on the planet-right? So even if the rumors are true, why bother saving the lives of those who are no longer able to think.
