Heart of A Killer
"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"--

This is the first book I have read by this author. It will not be the last. Great writing, plot and humour.

It was hard to put this book down. David's wit and undeniable expertise in presenting an absolute mind blower makes me want more. It definitely didn't need a dog.

It's true that parents will do anything for their children and convict Sheryl Harrison is no exception. She wants lawyer Jamie Wagner to arrange her suicide so her sick daughter can have her heart. Good story with Rosenfelt's humour - but no dog!

This is a stand alone book from the author of the Andy Carpenter series & is just as enjoyable. Jamie Wagner, a lawyer, takes on a pro bono case that presents interesting & disturbing legal & ethical questions. All of a sudden, he's part of a national manhunt for a sociopathic killer & feeling just a teensy bit out of his league. The characters are interesting & the plot convoluted. Rosenfelt's trademark humour keeps you chuckling as you madly turn the pages to learn the truth.
