Many mystery lovers will argue that Connelly's best writing is found outside of his well-known, long-running Harry Bosch series. And this non-Bosch title would prove their point. Picture this: An ex-FBI agent recovering from a heart transplant is convinced to investigate the murder of the person whose heart beats in his own chest. An oddball premise, yes, but it's a compelling hook that'll set your own heart pounding. Plus, the sexual sparks between our hero and a reluctant, but beautiful, sidekick provide one of the more realistic love stories in a recent thriller.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly presents his most ambitious, most gripping achievement to date--a novel of masterly suspense and righteous obsession that will never let you go.

When Graciella Rivers steps onto his boat, ex-FBI agent Terrell McCaleb has no idea he's about to come out of retirement. He's recuperating from a heart transplant and avoiding anything stressful. But when Graciella tells him the way her sister Gloria was murdered, it leaves Terry no choice. Now the man with the new heart vows to take down a predator without a soul. For Gloria's killer shatters every rule that McCaleb ever learned in his years with the Bureau--as McCaleb gets no more second chances at life...and just one shot at the truth.

Review:

"A tormented hero, a canny and malicious killer, endlessly patient detective work alternating with dark threats and tense action scenes: Connelly seems bent on wiring together every cliche of the mano-a-mano genre and juicing them till they sing." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Thanks to a heart transplant, retired FBI agent Terry McCaleb has a new lease on life. But his plan for early retirement is thwarted when he learns that his heart donor's death was no accident. Racked with the guilt of having lived because of someone else's murder, he springs into action. Now, his own investigation leads him to a crime far more complex and dangerous than he ever imagined.

Synopsis:

A retired FBI agent investigates the death of heart transplant donor.
