Jamie Wagner must free a convicted murderer so that she can save her dying daughter by taking her own life in Rosenfelt's latest thriller. Jamie Wagner is a young lawyer who is happy to be flying under the radar at a large firm doing background research for the partners. It's not that he isn't smart. He is. It's just that hard work, the whole legal world, isn't really his thing. Underachiever? Yes. Content? At least until the firm puts him on a case that turns his whole world upside down. Sheryl Harrison has served four years of a thirty-year murder sentence for killing her husband who she claims abused her and her daughter Karen. The case is settled. There shouldn't be anything for Jamie to do-except Karen is sick. She has a congenital heart defect and will die without a transplant, and her rare blood type makes the chance of finding a matching donor remote. Sheryl wants to be that donor, and Jamie is in way over his head. Suicide, no matter the motive, is illegal, and Sheryl is put on suicide watch. Jamie's only shot at helping Sheryl and saving Karen is to reopen the murder case, prove Sheryl's innocence, and get her freed so that she can pursue her plan on her own. A gripping story of an ordinary man faced with an impossible situation, David Rosenfelt's latest is his most powerful thriller yet.

"Would you give your heart to the one you love? Literally? A convicted murderer, Sheryl Harrison, hires young lawyer Jamie Wagner to sue the state and allow her to give her heart to her young daughter, who is dying of a rare illness. Wagner fights for his client, even though he knows it means she will sacrifice her life if he wins. And, of course, he falls in love with her. Tadd Morgan doesn't hold back in his narration, allowing the conflicting emotions of love, fear, and guilt to pour out in his performance. The listener is left not knowing whom to root for in this fascinating novel--and won't see the ending coming. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
