Frank Douglas likes making deals, accumulating wealth, and consolidating power. He drives himself until his heart fails, and he must undergo a transplant. He has a new chance at life and vows it will be different--he will spend more time with Kathleen and the girls. Then Frank finds out that his donor had committed suicide, and he sets out to help the donor's family; however, the widow, Rory, is convinced her husband, Daniel, was murdered. Frank teams with Rory to find out what really happened to Daniel. Buchanan, the Pulitzer Prize^-winning Miami journalist and author of the very popular Britt Montero mystery series, knows crime, criminals, and their victims very well. In addition, what she is exhibiting here (as well as in the last two Montero novels) is a deep understanding of human motivation. Frank Douglas is awestruck by his second chance at life and desperately wants to reinvent himself as the all-American family man. He's also confused and frustrated by his inability to change. He's as driven as ever; all he can hope to do is to understand himself. It's a difficult internal journey, and it takes a writer with Buchanan's skill to portray it accurately and empathetically.
