Although all of Picoult’s books fit the same mould, some stand out as being better than others.  This is one of them.   Jacob, who in addition to having Asperger’s, has a fascination with forensic criminology.  It comes as no surprise that he becomes the  centre of a murder investigation.  As per all of the novels by Jodi Picoult, this one is thoroughly researched with clear and believable statements about the characteristics of Asperger’s, its impact on both the family and the individual, as well as the complex issues of a forensic investigation.  A very good read.
