Abortionist's Daughter

Abortionist's Daughter
$23.95
Elisabeth Hyde has taken a powerful moral predicament and constructed around it a richly layered, compulsively readable novel about a murder in a small Colorado town, about the choices we make and the way their unintended consequences ripple through our lives. Two weeks before Christmas, Diana Duprey, an outspoken abortion doctor, is found floating in her pool, a bruise the size of a golf ball visible through her dark curls. A national figure, Diana inspired passion and ignited tempers, never more so than on the day of her death. Her husband, Frank, an attorney in the D.A.' s office for more than twenty years, had fought bitterly with her on the day of her murder. Yet to reveal the nature of their fight would cost him not only his career but something greater still-- a relationship he will go to any lengths to protect. Diana' s daughter, Megan, a college freshman, had also quarreled with Diana that day, and her role in her mother' s murder will prove more significant than she ever could have anticipated. The Reverend Stephen O' Connell, founder of the town' s pro-life coalition, obviously had issues with Diana, but his anger extended beyond the political to the personal-- namely, Dr. Duprey' s involvement with his own troubled teenager. Meanwhile, the detective on the case grapples to make sense of it all. His investigation implicates many in this town and reveals a series of gross miscalculations, each one challenging what we know, or think we know, about community, fidelity, justice, and love. A riveting and provocative page-turner: a novel of stunning economy and momentum by a writer poised for wide discovery.
