This American author takes gritty, social issues as the themes of her hard-hitting tales and keeps you turning the pages in astonishment through twists, misunderstandings and injustices.  Here we have a mother’s fury and pain spilling out of control with truly alarming consequences.  It couldn’t happen in the same way in the UK but as a piece of emotional drama it’s terrific.  She was one of the Richard and Judy Book Club picks and has an impressive backlist, all of which I also highly recommend.Similar this month: None but try Nicholas Evans.Comparison: Anita Shreve, Joshilyn Jackson.

Assistant DA 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. So when she realises that her son Nathaniel has been sexually abused - and is so traumatised that he has stopped speaking - she takes justice into her own hands. Nina Frost may have killed the man who hurt her son, but has she destroyed her family in the process? And whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

Another gritty, social subject tackled with authority and high drama, this author certainly knows how to deliver a punch.  A prosecuting officer on abuse cases’ worst nightmare happens: her five-year old son is raped.  Knowing the culprits so often get away scot-free, she disastrously takes the law into her own hands.  The consequences are a little far-fetched for over here but this is America and it seems anything is possible.  How it is all resolved is riveting stuff.  She is very good.Comparison: Anita Shreve, Elizabeth Berg.Similar this month: Patricia Gaffney, Noelle Harrison.
