About this title


It starts with a successful liver transplant for a dying alcoholic. It ends with a virus that leaves its victims screaming in pain before they die. And the death toll is rising...

In this timely medical thriller, author David Best taps into our deepest fears-and gives readers a nightmare vision of the side effects of experimental surgery.

From the Author:

Over the last decade a variety of biotech and pharmaceutical companies in the real world have collectively spent more than a billion dollars on research aimed at the use of pigs as organ donors for humans. Much of that money was spent trying to eliminate the severe rejection reaction that occurs when a pig organ is placed in a primate. While that problem has not been fully overcome, considerable progress has been made. Should it become possible for pig transplants to function normally in humans, no one needing an organ would die for the lack of one. But there really is a functional retrovirus in the DNA of all pig cells as I describe in my book, and there’s considerable concern that it could pose a transplantation health hazard. Best estimates are that the first pig organ transplants are still a few years away. What will happen when that becomes a reality? Will the pig retrovirus as it currently exists cause human disease? Will it mutate into something far more dangerous? When can we relax-after ten transplants with no problems? A hundred? No one can answer these questions. But one thing seems certain: We’re about to embark on a great adventure.

-Don Donaldson (A.K.A. David Best)
