I picked up today’s First Line Friday at my local county library’s semi-annual book sale. The title caught my attention. I read the description and picked it up. It definitely looks to be controversial with the whole abortion debate the focus of the novel. Once I catch up on reviews, I hope to pick this one up to read! There is this shocking first line to grab you and pull you into this one:
The problem was, Megan had just taken the second half of the ecstasy when her father called with the news.
Two weeks before Christmas, Diana Duprey, an outspoken abortion doctor, is found dead in her swimming pool. A national figure, Diana inspired passion and ignited tempers, but never more so than the day of her death. Her husband Frank, a longtime attorney in the DA’s office; her daughter Megan, a freshman in college; the Reverend Stephen O’Connell, founder of the town’s pro-life coalition: all of them quarreled with Diana that day and each one has something to lose in revealing the truth. Meanwhile the detective on the case struggles for the answers — and finds himself more intimately involved than he ever could have imagined.
