Great book - read in 2 days!
This book kept me reading from page one. It wasn't predictable and it seemed like something that could really happen in a town anywhere. A highschool relationship gone bad that turns very tragic is what will really get you with this one. Don't focus on the title. Excellent book!Was this review helpful?

The best book in a long time
Don't start this book unless you have time to finish it. This is one of the best books I have ever read. It reads quickly and reels you in from the first page. It has nothing to do woth the prolife/prochoice issue. It is a true murder mystery.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Because she is a director of a Colorado abortion clinic, Dr. Diana Duprey knows many people want her dead. Still when someone succeeds in killing her in the exercise pool of her home, her spouse District Attorney Frank Thompson and their nineteen years old daughter Megan are stunned.------------- The detective in charge of the investigation Huck Berlin knows this is a difficult case because of the enormous abortion enemy list and a witness claiming Diana had nasty arguments with her husband and her daughter just before she died. Since the coroner has a conflict of interest, another medical examiner does the autopsy though he holds a grudge against Frank. As Huck struggles with the case and his attraction to a prime suspect Megan, who seems to beg him to take her, he seems no closer to a resolution.------------- The whodunit and why take a back seat to the deep look into the impact of performing abortions by a caring medical practitioner and her family. Diana though seen mostly in flashbacks is a fascinating individual who believes she is doing the morally right thing. Her spouse thinks more about how her work impacts his political ambitions. Their daughter Megan is the most complex character of all as she is confused over her mother¿s idealism that seem contradictory as it also means killing a potential life. Diana¿s clients also are delved into with their conflicting internal disputes. Much more rounded than simple sound bites by pro life and pro women¿s rights, Elisabeth Hyde provides a strong character study that opens the abortion debate in an intelligent manner.------------ Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
