Publisher's Summary

In David Rosenfelt's latest thriller, Jamie Wagner must free a convicted murderer so that she can save her dying daughter - by taking her own life.
Jamie Wagner is a young lawyer who is happy to be flying under the radar at a large firm, doing background research for the partners. It's not that he isn't smart. He is. It's just that hard work, the whole legal world, isn't really his thing. Underachiever? Yes. Content? At least until the firm puts him on a case that turns his whole world upside down.
Sheryl Harrison has served four years of a 30-year sentence for killing her husband, whom she claims abused her and her daughter, Karen. The case is settled. There shouldn't be anything for Jamie to do - except Karen is sick. She has a congenital heart defect and will die without a transplant, and her rare blood type makes the chance of finding a matching donor remote. Sheryl wants to be that donor, and Jamie is in way over his head. Suicide, no matter what the motive, is illegal, and Sheryl is put on suicide watch.
Jamie's only shot at helping Sheryl and saving Karen is to reopen the murder case, prove Sheryl's innocence, and get her freed, so that she can pursue her plan on her own.

I loved the storyline...

This book begins with an interesting ethical dilemma that is carried throughout the book. I loved the storyline and where Mr. Rosenfelt took it. There were enough twists and turns that it kept me guessing all the way through and I didn't predict the ending at all. My very minor complaint would be that the narrator tried a little too hard to differentiate all the character voices, and it wasn't always successful. This is a great summer read!

What didn’t you like about Tadd Morgan’s performance?

Everything. The main character and MAYBE one other sounded normal. Was he using a voice synthesizer set to alien life forms? My Kindle could have read it better.
