Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling 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.

What the Critics Say

"What could have been a competent, topical novel about a mercy killing becomes, in Picoult's hands, an inspired meditation on love." (Publishers Weekly)

Fantastic

Another fantastic book by Jodi and couldn't stop listening to it and hoped and prayed at the end of everything would and Elly and Cam could ,have a baby. Please write another both where Elly and Cam have a baby but Elly was worried the baby wasn't Cam's but the cowboys, she needed to get a DNA sample from Cam without he realised what was going or Mia had Cams baby. Carry on writing as your brilliant at telling stories ......thank you ❤️
