If you enjoy reading Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs, this is a novel which will absorb you.' - Highlife What 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.

HARD TO PUT DOWN.
I am a huge Jodi Picoult fan and this is my favorite of the books of hers I have read (I still haven't read the last two). I admit it took me a long time to read her books simply because of the subject matter. I felt the same way about this one. Most of us don't want to read a book about such an uncomfortable subject. The molestation is only a small part of the book, it is just the catalyst. The story grabs you within the first few chapters and refuses to let go. One of the most surprising things about this book is the fact that I liked it so much while not liking the main character. I have heard this from friends of mine too. I have loaned it to several friends and they have loved it and I have always recieved the same comment "I couldn't put it down. It was so good!" I have only loaned it to women so far so I can't give a man's perspective. You won't waste your money on this one.

This is the first of Ms. Picoult's books I have read and I now look forward to reading everything she has written. The book picks you up and carries you all the way until the great ending. What a treat to read an author that pays attention to the end of a book. I highly recommend this writer.
