GHOST HEART by Lisa Harris and Lynne Gentry, reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"According to legend, their kind could never die. When they grew old, they simply vanished from this world, like smoke from the cooking fire . . . but not all legends are true."

Deep within the wilds of Tanzania, brutality is masquerading as philanthropy. Major organs are being ripped from their sanctuary, particularly hearts; and if a man, woman, or child happens to be cursed with albino blood, there is little hope for survival. Caught in the middle of this terrible foray is pediatric transplant surgeon Mia Kendall, whose patients seem to be dying at a surprising rate, in spite of her meticulous techniques and use of anti-rejection medications. Suspecting that foul play is somehow involved at the highest level, Mia coaxes bush pilot Race Daniels into helping her untangle what appears to be an international web of deceit. 

Miles away in Cincinnati, Ohio, a young mother is running a race against time; watching her young daughter's life seep out of her body day after day has been an agonizing journey with a very tragic ending in sight. Kelsey needs a new heart and parents with a million dollars in the bank; Catherine and Brad Taylor have neither, and their faith in each other is fading in the process. When it seems that an answer to prayer may be found in Africa, will Catherine risk everything dear to her own heart, in exchange for her daughter's life?

This medical thriller is written with an acute sense of the sanctity of life, while at the time hurling its readers through perilous darkness before bursting back into the marvelous light.

Back Cover Blurb:
A mother willing to risk everything for her child.
A surgeon desperate to cover his crimes.
Ripped from today's headlines comes an unforgettable, chilling medical thriller.

"Gripping, riveting, unnerving."

A brutal murder convinces Dr. Mia Kendall there's more than she imagined to the mysterious spike in heart transplant rejections. Determined to find answers before she loses another patient, Mia gets sucked into a dangerous international medical web. With time running out for her youngest transplant recipient, Mia is forced to partner with a disillusioned ex-military pilot who flies brokered organs across East Africa. But searching for the truth will prove costly, because there are some lines that should never be crossed.

From best-selling author Lisa Harris and award-winning author Lynne Gentry comes a haunting story that will take you from the suburbs of Cincinnati to the jungles of Africa.
