Grip­ping and provoca­tive ripped-from-the-head­li­nes­rel­e­vant drama is Jodi Pi­coult’s spe­cialty, and her lat­est page-turner de­liv­ers on all counts. The story takes place on one night­mare of a day, when a gun­man opens fire at the last re­main­ing women’s health clinic in Mis­sis­sippi. As po­lice, doc­tors and nurses han­dle the fall­out and the sur­viv­ing vic­tims try to process what hap­pened, the novel moves back­ward through time, pro­vid­ing in­sight into what brought each char­ac­ter to this mo­ment. In true Pi­coult fash­ion, the book ig­nites an in­ter­est­ing con­ver­sa­tion on a po­lar­iz­ing sub­ject.
