If Thy Right Hand (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 25, 2011 12:49PM
Description: Ilene Hart has spent her career putting sex offenders behind bars. But her passion and empathy for the young victims get the better of her when she triggers a firestorm of protest in her community with a lecture about where the danger to children really lies. Both she and her nineteen-year-old son Sam, who struggles with Asperger Syndrome, become the target of cruel personal attacks, and their ordered family life begins to unravel. Things take a deadly turn when she discovers that a killer with a biblical sense of retribution is behind the threats to her family. In her pursuit to keep them safe, she must confront her misperceptions about herself, her children, and the sometimes cloudy line between abuser and abused.

I very much enjoyed Gone Girl, but I don't understand the hype on this book. I would describe it as the story of 3 dependent, self-destructive women, each of whom speaks in the same literary voice, making them almost indistinguishable to the reader. ...more

Helen Epstein Robin, I think you would as an actor very much enjoy Vlasta Schoenova's Acting in terezin which I translated from the Czech. It's a short but amazing memoir of making theater secretly and openly under the Nazis.
