New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult has an incredible talent for taking hot-button social issues and weaving them into compelling page-turners. In Mercy, she explores the depths of love in its many forms.

Police chief Cameron McDonald has lived in idyllic Wheelock, Massachusetts, for most of his life, as has his beloved wife Allie. Their comfortable lives are thrown into tumult, however, when Cam’s distant cousin Jamie arrives in town along with his wife’s dead body. Jamie admits to the murder—a mercy killing to end the pain caused by a ravaging cancer. And now Cam is torn by his oath to uphold justice and his family obligations as chief of the Scottish McDonald clan. Meanwhile, another new arrival in town, Mia Townsend, threatens to unwittingly drive a dagger through Cam’s marriage.

Deftly portraying the complexities of love and passion, Picoult delivers another literary triumph with Mercy.

    " Usually love the author's books, but this one was depressing and slow. not my cup of tea... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ros | 2/12/2014

    " Definitely not as good as many of her other books - frequently disjointed. References to those who question "mercy" killing as typically Republican, Catholic, or those with less education is tiring...not to mention offensive. Do yourself a favor Jodi, refrain from marginalizing people...it is petty. "
