    Great story with a touching ending. I found it suspenseful and I loved how God's forgiveness, mercy, and love were portrayed. Excellent read.

    This was one of the first books in a very long time where I did not want to wait and find out what happened at the end. But I did. I did fight the urge and followed along with the story to the very end. And I'm glad I did.

    Truman Wiley has an addiction, and his addiction is gambling. He lost his job as a writer, and has been living in a cottage by the sea estranged from his wife and family. He owes big money to a loan shark and is in dire straights, desperately needing money. It's as his home is being foreclosed on that his wife offers him a chance to save his son.

    His son, Aiden, has a bad heart. A man in prison, Terrell Connely has offered to give Aiden his heart when he is executed. He's on death row and his time to die is in 30 days, and he wants Truman to write a book on his life and when he was born again. After much trepidation Truman agrees.

    The story introduces you further into Truman and his fears and worry's about life. His relationship with his wife, daughter and son. His discovery's about his life as the story moves along.

    It is a well-written book and I could easily see how this could have developed into one that was a lot more intense with stronger character development. On par with a John Grisham or such, but it wasn't.

    The details in his writing had me in the story, in the alley and nails biting wondering what was going down. I admit, I was on edge hoping Truman wouldn't make a mistake.

    All in all, I was very impressed with the book and enjoyed it. I didn't like Truman and found that he was a man chasing his own demons. It was a Christian based book, however there wasn't a lot of Christianity thrown down your throat. A clean book.

    I received this book from Tyndale Rewards, and am writing a review on my own without any compensation.

    This incredibly well written book was not an easy read. You pick up books that you know are going to be entertaining, and this is not one that is entertainment quality. It is a deep, well thought out novel. Truman Wiley used to be an incredible husband, father and writer. Gambling has become his mistress, taking the place of his family and he cannot even get himself to go visit his dying son. When his family is offered a chance at a new heart for their son, he grasps at the chance..but wonders if in the end, his son will still die. The gambling, the abandonment of his family in their time of need and his lack of relationship with God all drive Truman to a place of wondering as he writes a book about a murderer on death row. What if in writing this man's story, he finds out he is innocent? What does that mean for his son? This very deeply moving story is one you will savor and contemplate. It is not a fast read. It is one, like Mr. Fabry's other novels, that requires deep thought. It has an ending with a twist that gives new meaning to the title! Excellent book!

    This was the first time I had read a book by this author.

    I will certainly look for more. This was a very sad but true story of how addictions ruin our relationships and keep a strong hold on us. Chris puts a lot of humor in his thoughts which I liked.

    It was such a surprising ending! I look forward to more from Chris.
