  1. 5 Stars Out Of 5
    March 23, 2009
    John Sibley
    "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).

Author/Artist Review

Author: Jane St. Clair
Located in: Tucson, Arizona
Submitted: March 19, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Jane St. Clair has published 21 children’s books, over fifty children’s short stories, and short stories for adults in literary magazines such as Thema, QWF, and Red Rock Review. Her stories also appear in several literary anthologies, including Times of Grace, Times of Sorrow published by the University of Nebraska and Mourning Sickness from Omni Press. She is the 2007 winner of the True Life Story contest, 2006 first place winner of The Writers Network contest, American Accolades (first place), Hollywood’s Next Success, and 2005 winner in television writing for Scriptapalooza. Walk Me to Midnight is her first novel.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I stayed for weeks with my sister, my mother, and my father when they were dying of cancer. The hospice nurses were incredible and taught me the way of compassion and caring, not assisted suicide.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The most important gain is to simply enjoy reading a really entertaining, scary book with strong characters, a compelling story, and fascinating settings. But I also hope readers might be persuaded against assisted suicide laws.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It forced me to think about the implications of assisted suicide laws on society. Such laws create a colder, less compassionate way of death and medical treatment. Relatives sometimes want to hurry the dying process so they can inherit more quickly or get a difficult process over with. They open the way for healthy people and teenagers to commit suicide by putting societal approval on it. Insurance companies want such laws in place to save money on end of life care. You are not gaining a new "right" to dignify death; you are turning over control to your government and doctors. Hitler started by killing the terminally ill.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  St. Therese of Liseux, St. Francis of Assisi, Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King not only lived exemplary lives, but they were great writers.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  That death is a natural process and nothing to be afraid of. Nature sends every dying person comforts that are cross-cultural, universal and effective. The ultimate challenge is not dying, but in living your life well.
