Sarah Broadhurst's view...

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.

If you like Jodi Picoult you might also like to read books by Joanna Trollope, Maggie O'farrell and Alice Hoffman.

Synopsis

Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult

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?
