This gripping dystopian debut by E.J. Babb is a haunting glimpse into a very possible, very divisive future. With an unflinching exploration into the life and living, this is a must for readers of Orwell’s 1984, Huxley’s Brave New World and Alderman’s the Power.

The public call her a cold-blooded murderer. An executioner. A killer for hire.

Nieve Hindeman is a euthanasist.

She is one of hundreds of professionals relieving patients of their pain every day. To her, euthanasia is simply a medical solution to a medical problem.

But when Nieve starts to treat a voluntary patient – a man who is physically healthy but choosing to die – she starts to question the work she does. How can she prove that someone’s desire to die is genuine? Can a patient ever be psychologically terminally ill? And is a life ever not worth saving?

These Unnatural Men is available in paperback and e-book.
