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. Underachiever? Yes. Content? At least until the firm puts him on a case that turns his world upside down.
Sheryl Harrison has served four years of a 30-year sentence for killing her husband, whom she claims was abusive. The case is settled—there shouldn’t be anything for Jamie to do—except Sheryl’s 14 year-old daughter, Karen, is sick. She has a congenital heart defect and will die without a transplant. Her blood type is rare, making their chances of finding a donor remote at best. Sheryl wants to be that donor for her daughter, and Jamie is in way over his head. Suicide, no matter the motive, is illegal. So with Sheryl on suicide watch, Jamie’s only shot at helping her and saving Karen is to reopen the murder case, prove Sheryl’s innocence and get her freed so she can pursue her plan on her own.
Heart of a Killer—a gripping story of an ordinary man faced with an impossible situation—is the most powerful and shocking thriller yet from David Rosenfelt, a true master of the genre.

Reviewer: L. L
Refreshing, not a 'plot' that's been regurgitated one more time. Clever storyline, with good character development.
I'm a first time reader of David Rosenfelt's novels and I AM SO HOOKED!!! This book was off the chain, and I found it hard putting it down. It kept me reading to find out what was going to happen next, and the ending totally blew my mind ... a must read! I'm on Mr. Rosenfelt's website now trying to decide which book of his I want to read next ...
I loved this book--was hard to put down so I didn't!! The ending took me by surprise. Read it you won't be disappointed.
I am a fan of David Rosenfelt; have loved all his previous books and this latest one does not disappoint. It is great; I found it hard to put this book down. Intriguing plot and interesting characters. Surprise ending; did not see it coming.
