Is murder ever justified? Prison psychologist Eleanor Hartley has her work cut out for her when it comes to the mute girl named Jane, arrested and convicted of two coldblooded murders.

What would make an ordinary girl murder two men then go completely silent? Eleanor uses her work to distract herself from a vicious betrayal and her own problems at home.

The Things We Do is a psychological whodunit that reveals the importance not only of what people say and do--often carefully monitored--but also of what they think and feel. The story weaves together two different narratives, one addressing the prison system, the other addressing laboratory testing on animals, for a shocking ending.
