In this story, Stone explores the subject of cellular memory with terrifying consequences…
When Jacob Wilson; the son of a Reverend, finally gets the call from the hospital that they’ve found a viable heart, everyone is over the moon that the young, kind and sweet Jacob has been given the chance to live. His father and mother thank God for listening to their prayers.
Except the miracle has turned into a living nightmare. Jacob wakes up as a new man… and not a very nice one. As the days go by his behaviour becomes even more volatile and crude. The doctors say it’s nothing to worry about and only a common side effect of a long and difficult transplant surgery. His mother thinks differently. His girlfriend knows Jacob is no longer the man she fell in love with.
He’s a monster.
With the doctors dismissing the idea that his new heart could be changing his personality, and her husband continuing to not face the truth, it’s up to Elizabeth to trust her instincts and explore the option that the heart inside her son is from a very bad man.
Meanwhile a parallel story develops and as the two stories combine with catastrophic effects, it’s a race against the clock to save others and the son they used to love…
The concept of this plot instantly piqued my interest, how much can a person’s behaviour be transferred to another person through an organ?
As the reader, you’ve met the previous owner of the heart in the first few chapters and I could only sit at the edge of my seat throughout turning the pages, to discover how much of his character Stone would release into Jacob. I was terrified!
It’s one of those stories that will make you feel uncomfortable, it will have you screaming at the other characters to see the true reality of the situation they are in, and you won’t be able to put the book down until the final page as the pace is unbelievably fast and absorbing.
I am pretty sure this is the first book I’ve read by Lisa Stone/Cathy Glass and I’ll be adding more to my TBR very soon because her ability to delve into the deepest and darkest thoughts of her characters created a bond with me; as the reader, which was unbreakable throughout.
You all know I love psychological thrillers, and it’s hard to stand out in this genre as more authors break in to it, but this book is a STAND OUT book, it’s a psychological thriller with a twist. It will have you questioning not only the characters but the subject matter.
Gripping just doesn’t even seem to cover the effect this book had on me.
Jacob is the person who needs a heart transplant. Shane dies in a car accident. Jacob receives Shane's heart and also has a change of personality so therefore receives Shane's not so good (very very bad) points.
During the course of getting well again Jacob becomes a really bad chap and his mother tries to find out about change of personality after transplant.
To make matters worse Jacob also meets Shane's ex-girlfriend who wasn't aware that Shane had died.
An excellent book that stops you doing your jobs!
The book starts by introducing us to Shane and his bad evil life (involved in a abuse relationship with his girlfriend Rosie) who is then shortly killed off in a car accident, which then gears us up for the main story.
Shane heart is then transferred to Jacob who needs a heart transplant. Then the story fellows Jacob who's personality starts to change following the transplant, which doesn't go unnoticed by his mother (has it anything to do with Shane bad heart?).
While his mother comes to terms with what is happening with her son and what the real reason is behind his sudden change, we see Jacob as he starts buying drugs, is after buying a car (after failing to get to credit for, how far is he going to go to get one) who then finally crosses paths with Rosie (aka Shane girlfriend).
The rest of the story is very predictable, however this does not stop you from reading right to the end to see how bad Jacob will go and to see if there is a way to rescue him.
So overall a very good read which had me on edge right to the very end. I likely to look at the authors other works after fully enjoying this.
The subject of cellular memory is fascinating and the book was well written and fascinating,, I was unable to put it down.
Hard to believe it's written by the same person as the fostering books. You just have to read this!
