'A love story, thriller and family drama in one, THE PACT is the perfect novel to take on holiday this summer. You will find this novel impossible to put down - and if you take it on holiday with you, just don't plan on doing any sightseeing until you've finished it!'
'The novelist displays an almost uncanny ability to enter the skins of her troubled young protagonists'
'Picoult is a writer of high energy and conviction, who has, in [THE PACT], brought to life a cast of subtly drawn characters caught up in a tragedy as timeless and resonant as those of the Greeks or Shakespeare . . . She forges a finely honed, commanding, and cathartic drama'
'Engrossing . . . Picoult has a remarkable ability to make us share her characters' feelings of confusion and horror . . . THE PACT is compelling reading'
'Picoult has become a master . . . It is impossible not to be held spellbound by the way she forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong'
'Picoult's characters are so compelling that the reader hopes this won't be the last time we meet'
