Publisher's Summary

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.

WOW, that was intense!

The author is a ex heart surgeon who is is now an author of medical thrillers. The Organ Takes is Book 1 of the David McBride Trilogy. The suspense is incredible. The novel was first published in 2014 and was made available in audio format last week. Books 2 and 3 in the series are already available in various formats and should be released soon in audio format. The publisher's summary is excellent but tells a bit more than I prefer. Joel Richards narrates very well indeed.

The Organ Takers is a standalone, but it does end in a mild cliffhanger. This novel has my Highest Recommendation.
