The Organ Takers: a novel of surgical suspense

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

Failed surgeon David McBride is in exile from the surgical community after making a costly error in judgment. Down but not out, he perseveres and is given a second chance to establish a career in surgery. But, as McBride stands on the threshold of a new life, the malignant underside of his fellow man intervenes. Under the threat of violence, David is forced to perform illegal organ harvests in a makeshift operating room hidden in a dilapidated meatpacking warehouse in lower Manhattan. Unable to resolve the excruciating moral dilemma faced each time he invades the body of an unwilling victim, David McBride fights to free himself from the situation and in the process loses everything. When he finally loses the last shred of his humanity, he seeks revenge with surgical precision ... and instrumentation.
Reviews
Kirkus Reviews

"In this engaging novel, the author wields dynamic characters and intelligent prose like a skilled surgeon's instruments."

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"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."

The Daily at the University of Washington

"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."
