Heart of a Killer
David Rosenfelt

Jamie Wagner is a young lawyer who is happy to be flying under the radar at a large firm. It's not that he isn't smart. He is. It's just that hard work, not to mention the whole legal thing, isn't exactly his passion. But then he's put on a case that turns his whole world upside down.

Sheryl Harrison is serving a thirty-year murder sentence for killing her husband, who she claims was abusive. The case is settled-there shouldn't be anything for Jamie to do-except now Sheryl's fourteen-year-old daughter, Karen, is sick. She has a congenital heart defect and will die without a transplant. Sheryl is a matching donor-and is willing to die to save her daughter. But suicide, no matter the motive, is illegal. Now Jamie is in way over his head.

With Sheryl on suicide watch, Jamie's only shot at saving Karen is to reopen the murder case, prove Sheryl's innocence, and get her freed so that she can pursue her own plan. And time is running out...
