    Synopsis

    Comic book artist Daniel Stone never for a moment suspected that the boy his fourteen-year-old daughter, Trixie, loved might inflict upon her the worst possible harm. Could the young man, who once made Trixie's face fill with light, have drugged and then raped her? She says that he did, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a man with a past he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back in order to protect his daughter.With a story that transports readers from small-town New England to the wilds of the Alaskan bush, interspersed with parallel vision through the striking pen-and-ink pages of Daniel's graphic novel, Jodi Picoult probes the unbreakable bond between parent and child - and the dangerous repercussions of trying to play the hero. “[This] novel's twists and suspense will satisfy the most adrenaline-addicted reader…Picoult must have set her keyboard on fire as she wrote. The energy and tumble-down acceleration is extraordinary.”  Midwest Book Review“A compelling read…The Tenth Circle has 11th-hour plot twists reminiscent of a CSI episode…engrossing entertainment.” Globe & Mail, Toronto“Picoult takes two hard-hitting subjects - rape and murder - and pulls them apart with such intelligence and insight that you'll never see them as clear-cut issues again. Tender, compelling and brilliant.”  Eve Magazine, UK“The Tenth Circle is absolutely the thought-provoking and topical novel readers have come to expect. What comes as a surprise is just how thoroughly the book twists the reader's heart…”  Denver Post“Picoult spins fast-paced tales of family dysfunction, betrayal, and redemption… (her) depiction of of these rites of contemporary adolescence is exceptional: unflinching, unjudgmental, utterly chilling.”  The Washington Post“Another gripping, nuanced tale of a family in crisis from bestseller Picoult.”  People“This story of a flawed family on the brink of destruction grips from start to finish.”  Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
