A brilliant surgeon cracks the code to successful organ transplants, setting him up to save countless lives and even land a Nobel Prize. So how has he wound up in Mexico with a booming organ business and blood on his hands? Find out in Vital Organs, the first of a medical thriller trilogy by physician Allan Zelinger that is certain to keep your heart racing while it sends shivers down your spine.
Dr. Hal Jamisons ingenious discovery of the Chimera Factor protein will at long last ensure that a body does not reject its new organ. However, fate has a different design for the doctor, who instead is forced to leave Boston General in disgrace.
Founding the Jamison Institute in Mazatlan, Mexico, Jamison takes along his lover Patricia Hurley and colleague George Fleming, who profit from his medical prowess in every possible way.
