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.”

    Booklist

  • “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 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 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 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 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Babs Merkert | 1/18/2014

    " I absolutely loved this book--couldn't put it down. I've always enjoyed David Rosenfelt, but some of his books are better than others. This one was terrific! Even better than John Grisham. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jill | 1/3/2014

    " I wasn'that wild about this book. It felt like it jumped a lot and it wasn't until the end where the plot came together. I seem to like the Andy Carpenter series better than his stand alones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lois | 12/30/2013

    " Wow, what a read. I said I wasn't going to read any more books set in NYC, but I did. I guessed the "bad guy" right before he/she was revealed. This book also passed the sister test, my sister could not put the book down and loved the read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 12/24/2013

    " I liked this story line but didn't love the way it was written. At times it felt more like a youth fiction than an adult novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruthpresley | 12/22/2013

    " Good read. Glad I found this author. I'm in the midst of reading another of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitchell | 11/8/2013

    " Great storyline! I couldn't rate it 5 stars because the author set the standard with Andy Carpenter. Hope to see more from these characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 11/7/2013

    " have read him before and liked him but found this one confusing and only ok "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancywboca | 9/2/2013

    " This was a well written good story-line book. I just didn't think it was a 4 star (great) or 5 star (amazing) book. I would recommend it - quick read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 6/6/2013

    " Literally about a heart, this is quite an intriguing premise though the ending feels a bit contrived. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Porter | 1/26/2013

    " another good read by Rosenfelt..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/9/2012

    " A thrilling ride! Keeps you on the edge of your seat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 10/2/2012

    " Wonderful .... I really enjoyed reading the book. Hated to see it end. Hoping to read more of this character in the near future! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 9/27/2012

    " Really like his books but this one was lacking a dog! I have come to count on Rosenfelt to endear me with a dog, even if it is minor character. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 9/14/2012

    " Excellent; an attorney with little enthusiasm is assigned a pro-bono case where a prisoner wants to be allowed to die in order to supply a heart to her daughter; the story makes front-page news until a terrorist starts striking at various targets using computer hacking "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 9/7/2012

    " I could not put this book down -- a fast-paced well-thought-out story -- loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 6/18/2012

    " David Rosenfelt does it again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eugenie Baumann | 5/14/2012

    " This book was really irretrievably awful. Ick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bgrayyoung | 5/2/2012

    " Another can't-put-it-down thriller by Rosenfelt. Very timely subject, a bit scary premise, but very enjoyable read.....even without the usual canine component. "
