The Pact

By: Jodi Picoult

The Pact, a riveting psychological drama, explores the dynamics of intimate relationships under stress.  The Hartes and the Golds have been neighbors for eighteen years, and parents and children alike best friends, so it is no surprise when Chris and Emily’s friendship blossoms into something more. But no one is ready for the appalling truth when the hospital calls at midnight: Emily is dead from a gunshot wound to the head and there’s a single unspent bullet in the gun that Chris took from his father, a bullet that Chris tells police he intended for himself. A local detective, however, has doubts about the suicide pact that Chris describes.  A Lifetime Movie version of The Pact starring Megan Mullally was produced in 2002.
