This is my first taste of a Pamela Crane book and I found it an excellent read.This is a book that grabs your attention early on and makes you want to pick it up and continue the read at every opportunity The story centres on Mia Germaine who was involved in an accident when she was twelve resulting in her Father s death and the need for a heart transplant A heart transplant from a young murder victim saves Mia s life but with an unexpected side effect Twenty years later Mia has nightmares about the unsolved murder of her young doner She experiences a connection with the murdered girl and recalls chilling memories that start to unravel the actual murder Mia encounters a phenomenon called organ memory where she can experience the doners thoughts and see the past through her eyes Mia feels compounded to try and find the truth and bring the young doners killer to justice.A fascinating read that I thoroughly enjoyed After recently reading a couple of relatively slow books it was a satisfying change to read this fast paced novel that is different from the average Mystery Thriller novel.A new author to me but I plan to reads a lotof Pamela Crane s books. 3.5 The author says at the endAnd for those of you who want to leave a legacy after you depart this world, consider becoming an organ donor You never know how you ll impact another person s life and live on in a powerful way There are anecdotes where people say their new heart or other organ has possibly given them not just new life, but new memories as well Whether it s true or not is pretty much beside the point Does it make an interesting premise for a mystery Sure, why not Mia s story is introduced in the first person by a particularly warped killer who decides the only way to keep girls innocent is to end their lives before they hit their teens He makes his position clearGirls dressed like whores acted like them too Younger and younger they were deflowered, and so many were to blame for the trend Negligent parents, ego based media, Facebook, selfies, retailer targeting, schools teaching it in the classroom Children were trapped at birth to one day succumb to this inflated sense of ego I had hoped my message would change all that Slowly but surely the masses would understand their plight But at each purging, my intent was covered up by the media, of course The newspapers called it murder, horrendous, and sick They girls were victims All lies The girls were set free, and I was their hero How could my point be mistaken Either the media was blind to the truth, or they were in on the scam to corrupt the lost My bet was on the latter Mia, now in her 20s with a boyfriend and good job, was the recipient of Alexis s heart years before Both girls were pre teens Mia, critically injured in a car crash that killed her dad, and Alexis, murdered by the Triangle Terror as we later learn on the same day.Lately Mia s started having odd dreams She s also been having some strong reactions to certain objects a stray beer can, a smell and it occurs to her that these feellike memories than the usual stuff of dreams, and she feels compelled to investigate at any cost.She tells most of the story, with occasional chapters narrated by the killer We get some background of the families and other characters, including red herrings, but mostly it s a who dunnit, and we watch and worry about Mia as she tries to piece her flashbacks together with whatever research she can find in social media and old news reports.There is some peculiar to me phrasing, such as when Mia wakes thirsty after her operation and is given a drinkWater an oasis to my throat There s also a fair bit of preaching about organ donation, which is understandable Thanks to Booklover Catlady Publicity and the author for a copy for review It s certainly an intriguing medical topic, and if it can help promptorgan donation, great Another good one based on organ memory is The Recipient, by Aussie author Dean Mayes He s a paediatric nurse in Adelaide I did review that also.
