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.
