A heart never forgets its last beat…

In a freak collision when she was twelve, Mia Germaine faced death and the loss of her father. A heart transplant from a young murder victim saved her life, but not without a price. Twenty years later, chilling nightmares about an unresolved homicide begin to plague Mia. Compelled by these lost memories, she forms a complicated connection to the victim—the girl killed the night of Mia’s accident—due to a scientific phenomenon called “organ memory.”

Now suffocating beneath the weight of avenging a dead girl and catching a serial killer on the loose dubbed the “Triangle Terror,” Mia must dodge her own demons while unimaginable truths torment her—along with a killer set on making her his next victim.

As Mia tries to determine if her dreams are clues or disturbing phantasms, uninvited specters lead her further into danger’s path, costing her the one person who can save her from herself. More than a page-turning thriller, “A Secondhand Life” weaves a tale of second chances and reclaimed dreams as this taut, refreshing story ensnares and penetrates you.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Amazing! I usually read science fiction, but this is honesty one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’ll suck you in from the very beginning. I couldn’t put it down. Story aside, the writing is impeccable, immersing you in Mia’s heart-rending reality, as she relentlessly hunts a killer who preys on young girls–including the one whose heart beats in her chest. You won’t regret reading The Second Hand Life.

This is such a thought provoking and suspense filled story! So well written I had a difficult time trying to figure out who the killer was and wow what a surprise!! No worries I wouldn’t think of giving it away!! A spectacular cast of characters which only makes the story that much better and complex!! Who knew that organ memory was a thing? Makes sense though…I guess!

I read this in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down. I’ve already recommended this book to three other people. The idea behind Organ Memory is so fascinating to me. It is definitely a page turner. Normally, I can guess who is behind all of the murders but this book had me guessing until the very end. I had my suspicions but I wasn’t confident about them. I loved that about Pamela’s writing. Once I thought I figured something out, I was proven wrong.

*******

What an original plot device! A young woman receives a donated heart, and begins to experience the memories of the donor. That’s fine if the memories are all sweetness and light, but Pamela Crane has much grislier plans for the reader. I began this novel wondering at the leaps of faith it demanded of me, but very soon I was engrossed in top-class storytelling: A handful of red herrings, a love triangle, bloodthirsty close ups, an angst-ridden narrator, and a resolution with the bad guy doing the decent thing. I thought I was good at picking the killer in murder thrillers: Not this time!

*******

I found this book to be cleverly written and well thought out. I found it hard to put the book down. I am usually great at guessing the killer about halfway through a novel but this one I couldn’t guess at all. The twists and curves throughout kept me on my toes. I will certainly be reading more of Pamela Cranes books. Great read.

About The Author

Pamela Crane is a professional juggler. Not the type of juggler who can toss flaming torches in the air, but a juggler of four kids, a writing addiction, a horse rescuer, and a book editor by trade. She lives on the edge (ask her Arabian horse about that—he’ll tell you all about their wild adventures while trying to train him!) and she writes on the edge. Her characters and plots are her escape from the real world of dirty diapers and cleaning horse stalls, and she thrives off of an entertaining tale.
