by Jodi Picoult.
Quickie recap: The police chief and head of clan in a small town is confronted by a distant cousin who admits to having just killed his wife - at her request. The chief must then deal with the swirl of a painful court battle while his own marriage hits a serious road bump.
Quickie review: Picoult is a vice of mine. Her stories are simply told and simply enjoyed.
Quickie recommendation: It's not a work of great literature, but it's a mesmerizing story.
