After the doctors tell her that she’s losing her battle with cancer, Minnie reluctantly takes the last bed at Holl House, a hospice in Hamburg, Germany, to confront life’s most unanswerable questions. To her surprise, her new—and last—home could almost pass for a hotel (no white coats and plenty of champagne), if it weren’t for the full-time staff, the hard drugs, and the hearse parked outside. Before long, Minnie realizes that death isn’t the only mystery to be explored at Holl House: each of her terminally ill roommates hides a secret, and as her own departure nears, she begins to suspect that three recent passings are not quite as natural as they appear. But in a place where dying is a foregone conclusion, why would anyone bother to commit murder? With a killer on her heels and time running out, Minnie vows to solve the crime before she, too, says her last goodbye.
Told with surprising humor and frankness, Terminal is a murder mystery in an unlikely place as the dying approach the greatest mystery of all.
