Synopsis

In the course of her everyday work, career-driven assistant district attorney Nina Frost prosecutes child molesters and works determinedly to ensure that a legal system with too many loopholes keeps these criminals behind bars. But when her own five-year-old son, Nathaniel, is traumatized by a sexual assault, Nina and her husband, Caleb, a quiet and methodical stone mason, are shattered, ripped apart by an enraging sense of helplessness in the face of a futile justice system that Nina knows all too well. In a heartbeat, Nina's absolute truths and convictions are turned upside down, and she hurtles toward a plan to exact her own justice for her son -- no matter the consequence, whatever the sacrifice. Narrators: Carol Monda, Susan Bennett, Michele O. Medlin

Wow. You never know what you would do in this situation until you are faced with it. Can you be insane just long enough to bring justice and does that put you in the same shoes as the person that you bring justice to? I loved this book and couldn't put it down.

So many surprises. Great read. I'm a newcomer to Picoult's novels, but a definite fan. She creates characters that anyone can relate to, but especially parents.

Typical of Piccoult, twists and turns, keeps you up too late reading kind of book! The story is told without being too graphic, but is accurate in the portrayal of the psychological aftermath of abuse. Intense and thought provoking...
