A difficult topic skilfully explored. 

****Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD ****

"Exit" by Belinda Bauer is about the controversial question of whether a terminally patient has the right to end their own life. The characters in the book don't assist the suicides - they are only there to provide company during that final act - but the reader can't think of those deeper issues as the plot unfolds.

Speaking of the plot, about halfway through the book I thought I knew what the ending would be. I was wrong.

I love Belinda Bauer's unusual characters, and this book is no exception: PC Calvin Bridge is my favourite, but all the characters are worth getting to know, so don't be put off by the sombre subject. and read the book.
