Book Review: Not in the Heart
About the Book
Truman Wiley used to report news stories from around the world, but now the most troubling headlines are his own. He’s out of work, out of touch with his family, out of his home. But nothing dogs him more than his son’s failing heart.
With mounting hospital bills and Truman’s penchant for gambling his savings, the situation seems hopeless . . . until his estranged wife throws him a lifeline—the chance to write the story of a death row inmate, a man convicted of murder who wants to donate his heart to Truman’s son.
As the execution clock ticks down, Truman uncovers disturbing evidence that points to a different killer. For his son to live, must an innocent man die? Truman’s investigation draws him down a path that will change his life, his family, and the destinies of two men forever.
A very good book, heartbreaking, but good. Truman is a man who can make you angry yet love him at the same time, he has some serious problems but you can't help but wonder if his heart is ready to change.
His wife, well you can understand why she loves him, yet also, why she has kicked him out. The ones you really feel for are Truman's children, his son who lays dying in the hospital...wishing to see his father so badly. His daughter who has every right to be angry with him yet works with him to solve the case of the true murderer....is it the death row inmate willing to give up his heart? Or someone else entirely?
This book will leave you on edge in more ways than one. I think you'll enjoy it as much as I did!
