I keep going back to this author and find that I am hot and cold on her books on an individual basis. This is the story of a death row inmate who brutally murdered a police officer and his daughter. Now, facing death, he wants redemption by donating his heart to the sister of the little girl he murdered. That plot line in itself would have been more than enough to sustain the book. Personally, I could have done without the “second coming of the Messiah” sidebar to the story.
