"A fine first novel by Gil Porat, whose prose combines humor with the edginess of Edgar Allan Poe."
--Steve Alten, NY Times best-selling author of The SHELL GAME and MEG
"The Other Face of Murder deals with questions of ethics and emotions in this thought-provoking, yet funny and educational novel about physician-assisted suicide. This is the kind of novel in which readers learn as much as they do from non-fiction."
- Alegria Living Fall 2009 Issue
"The Other Face of Murder takes a look at the ethics of end-of-life issues through the prism of two extremely different deaths, and forces the reader to ponder whether the general definitions of murder and suicide even apply in these circumstances. The result is provocative, ambiguous and, at times, surprisingly funny."
