really liked it
Read in June, 2006 — I own a copy

The basis of the book could be one of 'controversy' but, regardless of the pro/anti abortion theme, this book picks up as quick thriller. Just about half way through I become addicted to the characters and did not want to stop reading.
The way the story was written you get to know the characters, as their backgrounds intertwine with their current lives.

Michael and Annie, and their two children; Annie is a bored housewife, who adores her children and her husband, Michael, is a popular Ob/Gyn who reconnects with an old lover and goes to work in an abortion clinic. Their lives become hectic and filled with fear as Michael becomes the center of harassment for his work at the clinic.
Simon and Lydia; Simon an artist/professor, working at the same college as Annie and his wife, Lydia, the "younger" wife, once the object of Simon’s desire, is emotionally unstable (to describe at best).
This book was very well written, complete and thrilling.
