Jacob Hunt is a teenager: brilliant at maths, wicked sense of humour, extraordinarily organised, hopeless at reading social cues. And Jacob has Asperger's. He is locked in his own world - aware of the world outside, and wanting to make a connection. Jacob tries to be like everyone else, but doesn't know how. When his tutor is found dead, all the hallmark behaviours of Jacob's syndrome - not looking someone in the eye, odd movements, inappropriate actions - start looking a lot like guilt to the police. And Jacob's mother must ask herself the hardest question in the world: is her child capable of murder?
"* 'Jodi Picoult is not one to shy away from fictional controversy; in fact, the more tangled and messy a moral dilemma appears, the better she likes it.' - Daily Mail * 'Impossible to put down and stayed in my mind long after I had finished' - Observer * 'Superb, many-stranded, and grimly topical' - The Times * 'Picoult has an uncanny knack of dreaming up moral dilemmas that you cannot ignore: you must know the resolution... A challenging and clever read' - Sunday Express * 'Dark, serious books that explore family relationships and scary moral dilemmas involving religion, crime and politics' - Heat"
