'Incredibly thought-provoking.' - The Sun
Superb, many-stranded and grimly topical... Picoult binds together precarious alliances with sensitivity, giving depth to characters without losing pace. Inhabited by contradictory, flawed individuals, this intelligent novel draws suspense, moral complexity and a stunning final twist out of what initially seemed a monochrome situation.' - The Times
A horrifying, close to real-life read, this novel is incredibly thought-provoking.' - The Sun
