Would you do the wrong thing for the right reasons? THE DILEMMA is the new gripping thriller from the author of the Sunday Times bestseller, EMMA'S BABY.

Would you do the wrong thing for the right reasons?
I thought you could help me. You’ve just left me here to suffer.

Haunted by her grandmother’s dying words, Dawn can only take comfort in the oath she took on becoming a nurse: first do no harm. It’s a promise she believes in, and takes seriously.

But when a terminally ill patient begs Dawn to end her suffering, Dawn is faced with an unimaginable choice. Except this wouldn’t be murder, it would be mercy – wouldn’t it?

When she starts receiving threats, Dawn realizes that someone knows her terrible secret . . . and that their silence will come at a price. She risked everything for what she believed was right once before – but will she know when to stop?
