What’s the difference between a man on death row and Truman Wiley? The death-row inmate knows when he’ll die, and Truman only knows that if he can’t change his ways soon, he’ll die, too. As the rest of his family copes with his son Aiden’s debilitating heart condition, Truman wastes his time gambling and mounting up debt. An interesting opportunity presents itself to him in the form of a convicted murderer. Terrelle Conley claims he is innocent and wants to do two things at the end of his life. He wants to tell his story and donate his heart to Aiden. Truman agrees to the task of telling Terrelle’s tale, reconnecting with his own family in the process. Best-selling inspirational author Fabry (Almost Heaven, 2010) sets up a genuinely gripping struggle as Truman comes closer to the truth and its consequences, and readers are forced to confront their own perceptions and expectations. This guaranteed page-turner will have readers questioning their views on the death penalty, organ donation, and the power of faith. --Carolyn Richard

“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.
