Sarah Broadhurst's view...

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.

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?
