0


A small-town girl flees from the assassin she hired to kill her when the doctor in her small hometown tells Sally Dillman that she has six months to live, the quiet young schoolteacher sells her house and moves to New York City. She comes not to see the sights, not for one last thrill, but to die as quickly as possible. Savings in hand, she pays a mobster $3,000 to put a contract out on her life. She wants to be killed before leukemia saps her strength, and she wants it to be a surprise. Only later does she learn of her terrible mistake. As the date of her appointed death draws closer, Sally feels none of the effects of her disease. A visit to the hospital confirms that the first diagnosis was wrong. She is no longer in danger from leukemia, but it is too late to stop the assassin. No longer prepared to die, Sally must fight to escape the deadly trap she laid for herself. ©1967 William Morrow and Company, Inc. (P)2013 Audible, Inc.
