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. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Edgar-finalist Rosenfelt’s fine stand-alone begins as a legal thriller that twists into a murder mystery before becoming a full-blown suspense chiller…Rosenfelt employs his usual wry wit to drive the well-paced plot.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A good character and a gripping story.”


  • “Why isn’t Rosenfelt a household name like Michael Connelly and Jeffery Deaver?”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “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.”


Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Chris | 2/15/2014

    " Per his usual style Rosenfeldt combines action, humor, & a dash of romance to create good fiction. Although Andy Carpenter was absent from this plot, it still the feel of Carpenter mystery. I found this novel to be very engaging but I was somewhat disappointed by its brevity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Al Menaster | 2/9/2014

    " OK, but essentially the same plot as another Rosenfelt novel. Not really a lawyer thriller, no courtroom action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Agatha | 1/28/2014

    " I really like this author's Andy Carpenter series about a dog-loving lawyer; this is the first of Rosenfelt's stand-alone novels that I have really liked; the premiss--a prison inmate wants the right to die to donate her heart to her ailing daughter--is pretty far-fetched but this is an easy and enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Herzog | 1/25/2014

    " Very nicely done. Big plot, little plot and lots of suspense. Some of the regular Rosenfelt humor, but not at all over the top. The characters were engaging and the dialogue entertaining. "
