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.
A TRIAL BY FIRE
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…
“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.” – Publisher’s Weekly
