Sage Singer, who befriends an old man who's particularly beloved in her community. Josef Weber is everyone favorite retired teacher and Little League coach and they strike up a friendship at the bakery where Sage works. One day he asks Sage for a favor: to kill him.

Shocked, Sage refuses…and then he confesses his darkest secret - he deserves to die, because he was a Nazi SS guard. Complicating the matter? Sage's grandmother is a Holocaust survivor. What do you do when evil lives next door? Can someone who's committed a truly heinous act ever atone for it with subsequent good behavior? Should you offer forgiveness to someone if you aren't the party who was wronged? And most of all - if Sage even considers his request - is it murder, or justice?


I have always, and probably will always have a weak spot for Mrs. Picoult. Although her stories tend to follow a tried and true layout, I always seem to end up being severely intrigued by and immersed in the story unfolding between and among each character-until all flows beautifully into one coherent whole. It's a predictable method, but one that I've come to know, and respect from this author. 

This particular tale sounds a little more thriller/mystery than I'm use to seeing from Jodi-therefore I'm anticipating it's release even MORE. Maybe she threw in some new concepts. Maybe it will be her Here's hoping, because I wasn't too crazy about Lone Wolf.

Are any of YOU Jodi Picoult fans? If so, what's your fav book by her?
