Mere hours separate life and death
A distraught gunman bursts into a reproductive health services clinic and opens fire, taking all inside hostage.
The police hostage negotiator sets up a perimeter. As his phone vibrates with text messages, he learns, to his horror, that his 15-year-old daughter, Wren, is in the clinic.
Wren will share the tensest few hours of her young life with a nurse who calms her own panic to save a wounded woman’s life; a doctor who works not in spite of his faith but because of it; a pro-life protester who stands in the crosshairs of the rage she has felt; and the gunman himself, vowing to be heard.
Counting backward through the hours of the standoff, this story traces its way back to what brought these very different individuals together.
“Picoult has made a name for herself crafting novels of depth and insight, peopled with rich characters and relationships.”—Kirkus Reviews
