Read full description of the books:
Dennis Heller wakes up in a small private hospital after a minor car accident to discover that one of his organs is missing. Worse yet, he soon learns that this is the second organ to be harvested from him.
Now Dennis must run for his life. Clearly, someone, somewhere, is a close match for him--and is powerful enough to steal Dennis's organs for transplant purposes. The next time, Dennis might lose his heart or lungs. He won't wake up after that . . .
Rivaling the best work of Robin Cook and Michael Crichton, The Donor drags the frightening reality of modern-day organ theft into the cold light of day.
