"I've found the only thing I can control is how well I tell the story and follow the truth.... The truth will always lead you to a good place." Truman Wiley used to report news stories around the world, but now the troubling headlines are his own. He’s out of work and out of touch with his family, but nothing keeps him awake at night more than his son's failing heart. With hospital bills mounting faster than Truman can gamble his life savings, it seems there’s no way out... until his estranged wife throws him a lifeline - the chance to write the story of a death row inmate willing to donate his heart to Truman’s son. As the execution clock ticks, Truman uncovers disturbing evidence that may point to a different killer. For his son to live, must an innocent man die?
As Truman’s investigation escalates, he’s forced to face his failures and make a choice that will change his life, his family, and the destinies of two men forever.

Great book. Loved it. Worth the read.
So comforting, in the knowing that we are imperfect.
Done humorously. God gets the glory and it's so subtly put into perspective in this book.
Few authors read their own work well. I simply couldn't go to sleep until this page-turner was done. No sordid language or compromising ouches here. Riviting, moving, real and unapologetically God-honoring. I sought it out after War Room and was thrilled! I am ready for the next Chris Farby hit! The guy 's a word-smith with a sense of humor.

Definitely.....in a year or two. It reminded me to not judge people by what I see. It was heartwarming, a who done it, and just a beautiful book.
I don't want to give anything away. I'll just say it was the last scene that took place in the governor's mansion.
It was interesting enough, but I prefer to stretch out and savor the really good books.
I'm not sure if this was classified under Christian fiction or not. It did have Christians in it, but did not read as "religious". If you aren't a believer, please don't let that stop you from getting this book. You won't be offended nor disappointed,
It had unexpected twists and kept me guessing about what would be uncovered next.
The unexpected ending was my favorite part.
The main character was performed well and his voice had just the right amount of skepticism and believability.
The main character was the most memorable because he changed the most throughout the story.
The gambling addiction of the main character was depressing and made it a little harder for me to identify with him or empathize with him. On the other hand, it was a moving example of a self centered, messed up individual who found forgiveness and redemption.
Well written .. actually wandered around most of a weekend with earbuds in because it was so engaging. Would recommend book highly ... hadn't read anything from this author before and just loaded my cart with 3 more of his books. He reads his books so well too.. if he wasn't an author he would do well as an audio reader!! Loved it and it's surprise ending .. well worth the time!!
