The Easy Way Out ( by Steven Amsterdam )


Product Description

Would you help someone end their life?

If you could help someone in pain, would you?

Evan is a nurse, a suicide assistant. His job is legal . . . just. He's the one at the hospital who hands out the last drink to those who ask for it.
Evan's friends don't know what he does during the day. His mother, Viv, doesn't know what he's up to at night. And his supervisor suspects there may be trouble ahead.
As he helps one patient after another die, Evan pushes against legality, his own morality and the best intentions of those closest to him, discovering that his own path will be neither quick nor painless.
He knows what he has to do.

In this powerful novel, readers are challenged to face the most taboo and heartbreaking of dilemmas, through the eyes of Evan (who also happens to be gay, and in a sweet and sexy threesome with Lon and Simon).

New York-born author Steven Amsterdam won The Age Book of the Year award for his first book. He lives in Melbourne, Australia, where he also works as a palliative care nurse.

Praise for this book:

''The Easy Way'' Out is a perfect storm of a novel. Superbly written and instantly engaging, with great characters and a killer (excuse the pun) premise... 
The assisted-death scenes are deeply intimate, and full of loving grace. And the questions raised by the moral dilemmas faced by Evan are vast, yet brutally simple, questions the author admits to having fielded in real-world scenarios''  - Chris Flynn, Sydney Morning Herald
