In the aftermath of a small-town school shooting, lawyer Jordan McAfee finds himself defending a youth who desperately needs someone on his side, while detective Patrick Ducharme works with a primary witness, the daughter of the judge assigned to the case.
Jodi Picoult has a knack for turning hot-button contemporary issues into morally troubling and fiercely paced bestsellers. She follows up the phenomenal success of MY SISTER'S KEEPER with NINETEEN MINUTES, a complex and disturbing novel about high-school shootings.
