If you enjoy reading Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs, this is a novel which will absorb you.' - HighlifeWhat would push you to commit a crime? Assistant District Attorney Nina Frost prosecutes child molesters, and in the course of her everyday work she endures the frustration of seeing too many criminals slip through the system and walk free.

This was the first Jodi Picoult book I read and after crying in the first few pages, I have become a huge fan of all her books. However this is still one of my favourites, with all usual twists and turns that will have you up until all hours of the night! Gets you wondering what you would do in the same situation...fantastic read!

This book makes you stop and think about what you would do if you were faced with a horrible situation. It looks at the extents a mother will go to in order to protect her child. It's full of action and is hard to put down. Picoult also introduces one of the clever twists I have come to expect from her. A great read.

As a mother I could totally empathise with Jp's Mother in this gripping read.
Makes you think about what lengths you would go to in protecting your children.
Jp skillfully describes the feelings we would all have and what we might like to do, but the consequences of the mother's actions show the even if you think you know all the answers, you may not.
A gripping story of a mother's love and how pressumtions can cause terrible repercusions
