Publisher's Summary

Exploring highly charged emotional and ethical issues, Mercy is the thought-provoking novel from New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult.

There is no doubt that Jamie Macdonald killed his wife. But was it murder, or mercy?

The case divides the small town of Wheelock. For Police Chief Cameron Macdonald, there's no question that he should be tried and face life imprisonment for Murder One.

But Jamie's victim was dying of cancer. He claims she asked for his help to die. And there are those who believe he has suffered enough....
