"Exciting and thought-provoking--the perfect package."
--Lee Child, New York Times # 1 bestselling author

"Tension and turmoil add up to high-stakes suspense in this all-too-real thriller, about a seedy and sordid world that rings with authenticity. The line between right and wrong is not only smudged, its smeared across the page." --Steve Berry, New York Times # 1 bestselling author

"A fascinating, troubling glimpse into the heart and soul of a black market organ dealer, which turn out to be even more complicated than we suspected. He's a man who gazes at the stars while engaging in some of the most nefarious negotiations possible on this planet, a man capable of greed, regret, and love in equal measures. A gripping portrait of a man in conflict with himself."
--Daniel Asa Rose, author of Larry's Kidney: Being the True Story of How I Found Myself in China With my Black Sheep Cousin and His Mail-Order Bride, Skirting the Law to Get Him a Transplant ... and Save His Life, which was named "one of the top books of the year" by Publishers Weekly

"The Organ Broker is so richly imagined and executed I felt I was reading a memoir, not a work of fiction. Stu Strumwasser is a hugely talented writer. Read the first page and you won't want to stop." --Don (D.J. Donaldson), author of the Andy Broussard/Kit Franklyn forensic mystery series and numerous medical thrillers.

"Powerful, original, and gut-wrenching. Stu Strumwasser takes us into the foreboding world of black market organ brokers, where each line crossed proves more dangerous than the last."
--Barry Lancet, author of Japantown and Tokyo Kill

"A thrilling narrative about the very real world of organ trafficking where human bodies in the third world are spare parts for patients in the first world. When The Organ Broker has a crisis of conscience Strumwasser asks if it's possible for him to make amends. The answer is both shocking and provocative."
--Scott Carney author of The Red Market: On the Trail of the World's Organ Brokers, Bone Thieves, Blood Farmers and Child Traffickers
