"In this engaging novel, the author wields dynamic characters and intelligent prose like a skilled surgeon's instruments."
"Robin Cook fans will relish this taut and powerful medical thriller set in Manhattan ... Van Anderson makes good use of his own medical training in the service of a superior page-turner."
"Richard Van Anderson's experience as a surgeon at the UW Medical Center gives him the ability to write a convincing debut thriller. The Organ Takers focuses on the moral failings and sociopathic behavior of corrupted medical practitioners. The verdict: Read if you like surgery and a standard thriller, but do not expect to trust your doctor after reading this."
