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.

Sometimes you know things you’re not supposed to know. Things that you can

never un-know. Things that will change the course of your life…and

the fate of the ones you love.

I found her in our living room, bleeding and close to death, but alive.

Barely. Until morning stole her last breath. The media called her

killer the “Triangle Terror” … and then forgot about her. But I

never forgot—my murdered sister, and an investigation that led to

my own resurrection from the dead.

Twenty-two years ago, on a cold February night, Landon Worthington lost his

father for the last time. After an armed robbery gone wrong, evidence

and witness testimony pointed a shaky finger at Dan

Worthington—deadbeat dad and alcoholic husband. But before the dust

could settle over the conviction, Landon’s preteen sister, Alexis,

is murdered in their home, plunging Landon’s life into further


Two decades and a cold case later, Landon is dogged by guilt over their

estranged relationship and decides to confront his incarcerated

father-of-the-year about what really happened the night of the

robbery. But the years of lies are hard to unravel. And the biggest

question of all haunts him: How does everything tie into his sister’s


And so begins Landon’s journey to piece together the puzzle of secrets,

lies, and truths that can free his father, avenge his sister, and

perhaps save himself.

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.

She is the author of the best-selling psychological thriller “The

Admirer’s Secret,” Amazon top 20 short story “A Fatal

Affair,” and her latest releases “A Secondhand Life”

and “A Secondhand Lie.”
