The Exception
By Christian Jungersen

Jungersen brings up questions in this thriller, such as, Where is evil? Is it possible that it resides in all of us? The story follows four women in a seemingly benign office that collects and distributes information on acts of genocide. When two of the women receive terrifying e-mails, the threats are a catalyst. People begin to commit heinous acts of bullying against each other. They also find ways to justify their behavior—and what's so key is that self-deception. You realize at the end of the novel that while we might not necessarily find a way to end genocide, we can possibly wake up and find a solution to our own behavior.
