- About the Author
Racy, pacy and packed with near-death experiences, drama, mounting hospital bills, desperate family members, suspicious characters and mysterious human organ traders, Organ Gold is a medical-themed thriller set in Singapore that looks at the darker side of organ donors and the booming black market in human organs.
The excitement begins in the very first chapter, when Jack, an American teen in Singapore for a visit, is accidentally shoved through a window and ends up in a coma. His parents, already in agony that he may never wake up again, also have to deal with the worry of medical costs. Soon after, a mysterious man contacts Jack’s father and offers him US$200,000 – for Jack’s organs.
Will Jack recover? Will his father sign away his organs for cash? Will Jack’s sister and friends – his anxious sister Jill, his clear-eyed Singaporean friend Lucille, and his nemesis, the resentful, murderous Tyson – manage to save Jack from being taken away by the organ traders?
The book includes a 7,500-word epilogue examining the arguments and issues about organ donation and organ trading.
