HEART OF A KILLER
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Thriller
Rosenfelt successfully combines two interconnected plots that portray the best and the worst of human motivation. Thrillers seldom make us stop and think about a moral question. This one does, and it’s an excellent read.
Sheryl Harrison is in prison, having confessed to killing her husband. Her daughter will die unless she receives a heart transplant, and the only suitable donor is Sheryl. She wants to die with a team of doctors nearby so that her heart can be given to her daughter. Lawyer Jamie Wagner takes on her case, but a course of action is unclear. There’s another story here, too, in which a criminal terrorizes the nation and slaughters at will to get what he wants. (MINOTAUR, Feb., 304 pp., $24.99)
