In March 1983, in an act that shocked people everywhere and resulted in front-page headlines around the world, Arthur and Cynthia Koestler committed double suicide in their house on Montpelier Square in London. It was understandable why Mr. Koestler had taken his life - he suffered from two increasingly painful and debilitating illnesses - but Mrs. Koestler was twenty-two years younger and in perfect health. This haunting, poignant book explains why she chose to end her life as well. Includes an Index.
