Abortion. Pornography. Malfeasance in the justice system. Illegal/legal drug abuse. Stalkers. It's all in The Abortionist's Daughter. Title notwithstanding, this crime novel has no primary protagonist. From chapter to chapter, the spotlight focuses upon several different characters - the daughter, two detectives, victim's husband, ex boyfriend, the victim herself, antiabortion activist -, throwing light upon their personal points of view with respect to the murder, and with respect to their relationships with the others who are enmeshed in the case. As in real life, each has his/her own virtues and faults, and some are likable while others are not. In some ways this book is reminiscent of Jodi Picoult's. Author Hyde has an intelligent writing style, a layman's understanding of psychology, and a talent for infusing her characters with authenticity. While it becomes evident early on who the culprit is, motive and method do not. The Abortionist's Daughter has the makings of a made-for-TV movie, with lots of drama and juicy plum roles.

If I were to use 1 word to describe this book it would be: FANTASTIC.
I read this book in a day and a half and could barely tear myself away from it the 1st night I started reading it. The only reason I was able to stop reading was because I was so dead tired I could barely keep my eyes open.
Well developed characters and a great story line.

"Review" by , "This is an exceptionally well-written book that pulls the reader nicely along right up until the surprise ending. Recommended."
"Review" by , "Sensational, like the book's title, but not quite on target."
"Review" by , "Hyde tells a good story....But these characters...are less sympathetic, and the magnitude of plot elements overwhelms; less resonant than Hyde's previous work."
