Walk Me To Midnight by Jane St. Clair

As current as tomorrow's newspaper, Walk Me to Midnight is a chilling page-turner guaranteed to keep you reading right up to its horrifying conclusion.

Bitsy Thatcher-Cole is dead.
But suicide makes no sense.

Psychologist Susan Rutledge can't believe her best friend is dead. Bitsy was a real American princess, the beautiful heiress to a vast fortune dating back to colonial America. So why would she commit suicide on the eve of her honeymoon? And why didn't Susan pick up on signs of her depression?
Bitsy's other close friend, flamboyant writer Billy Carolina, suspects something more sinister. That the good doctor Aleksis Hedeon has far more than "saving humanity" as his motive for helping in assisted suicides. Billy is determined that Susan join him in a quest for truth-even if the whole world thinks they're dead wrong. Even if what's revealed will cause them to run for their lives....

Walk Me To Midnight is a really entertaining story about a dismal subject -- assisted suicide. Nobody really wants to think about ending one's own life, and one would think that a book that deals with this issue would be unrelievedly depressing. Far from it. This book starts with the apparent assisted suicide of a very wealthy woman whose friend, a radio psychologist living in Tucson Arizona immediately suspects as a murder. Unfortunately for her and the acquaintances/allies that she gathers along the way, the perpetrators are on to these suspicions. Thus a large number of the characters become themselves targets. Who will make it, who will end up like the rich lady? The suspense builds throughout this work and one never knows where the hideous Dr. Hedeon will strike next. And a good word about the characters. They are thinly disguised people that anyone from literature or familiar with popular culture will recognize. Billy Carolina is clearly Truman Capote, Susan Rutledge just happens to replicate a rather famous radio personality. The perpetrator of course can only be one Doctor of Death who we have all come to "love and respect." There is also the stand up Texas sheriff and a Mexican police chief who find themselves faced with a murderer so adept that there is simply no physical evidence to connect him to the crimes that they clearly know he committed. Finally, the Arizona rancher with whom Susan falls in love and who tries desperately to protect her. The pace is fast, the characters (none of whom might be expected to get along in real life) coincide to make for an terrific read that will keep you on the edge of your seat (if not up too late wanting to finish -- as I did).

I picked up this book because I am a Jonathon Kellerman fan. His detective is a psychologist, and so is the detective in this novel. Also, Kellerman takes on big issues like Assisted Suicide, as does Walk Me to Midnight. I was surprised how good this novel was. It's more New Age than Christian, spiritual not religious. It makes you think about dying. The author puts in thinly-disguised celebrities like Truman Capote and Dr. Jack Kervokian, and Sesame Street, although it says they are just fiction. This makes it really fun. In fact, parts of this book are very funny. The story really picks up in the middle and I couldn't put it down until I finished it late at night. Five stars.
