    Every five minutes, a transplant candidate dies while waiting for a heart, a liver, a kidney. Imagine a technology that could provide those life-saving transplant organs for a nominal fee...and imagine what a company would do to get a monopoly on that technology.

    Story

    Scott Sigler's story starts out promising but fails to deliver. Although the premises is intriguing, it quickly disintegrates into extremely short segments that fail to adhere together. Too much bouncing around between characters and scenes leaves the reader feeling like he's watching 30 movies at once where the channel changes every minute.

    I understand that switching back and forth between characters and scenes is supposed to help build the plot, but I thought it destroyed my ability to grow attached to any of the characters and care about what happened to them. I needed to spend more sustained time with them to want to keep reading about them.

    In the end, I quit listening about half-way through the book, and being a die-hard reader, I NEVER do that unless I'm really disappointed.
