** spoiler alert ** Like all of Jodi Picoult's books it was fantastically written! She has a wonderful way of putting you in the story and seeing what the character sees, feels, wants etc... The title "Mercy" I don't know if it really goes with the book because there are some selfish themes that run throughout the book. For example, the Chief of Police has everything an american man wants and still has an affair. And worst he doesn't seem to think it is hurting anyone. He isn't in love with his wife when she would do anything for him. He really rather annoyed me at some points in the book. The woman he is having an affair with, Mia, is really very selfish as well. She wants to replace Allie, his wife, as if she had never existed. Over all this was a very good book. I couldn't put it down and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading engrossing heartfelt, controversial books.
