Originally published at Reading RealityThere are a lot of things that get dismantled in this suspense thriller A career a life or two a criminal enterprise and a cadaverIt all starts with the cadaver Medical school dropout Simon Worth dropped out over that cadaver As he and his study group dissected the anonymous donor he kept seeing the face of his dead sister in place of the corpse He couldn t take the nightmares and he ran awayThat he still feels responsible for his sister s death he isn t not really is what makes his nightmares so peculiarly devastating Not that his next choice is much betterHe finds himself with the help of one of his very very few medical school friends in a new job where his medical knowledge incomplete as it is comes in very handy Simon is the new face of Health Solutions Inc a company that matches poor but willing organ donors with recipients who are willing to pay to get moved to the top of the transplant listWhich is all completely illegal But Simon is able to elide the moral issues by telling himself that everyone involved including the highly compensated donors knows exactly what they are getting into when they game the systemAs long as everybody in the chain of illegalities has something to lose the delicate balance of crime stays under the radar Of course it can t possibly last forever and everyone seems to get that except poor Simon who gets caught actually caring for the people in this chain of uestionable practiceIt all falls apart when one retired football player needs a liver and one of his friends decides to buy one for him Not that Leonard Pellegrini really wants a new liver or a new lease on life but his friend Howard Crewes is trying to buy himself atonement for an entirely different event Leonard was perfectly content happy never comes into this thing drinking himself to death and understands completely that his liver is just the first and most vulnerable organ to pay the price of his oblivionBut Crewes wants absolution Leonard s wife and kids want him to stick around a few years and Peter DaSilva the actual head of Health Solutions Inc just gets greedy So everyone ignores the warning signsThe donor Maria Campos just wants a new life with enough money to set herself up far away from her old life There are plenty of warning signs on her side of this particular euation tooAlthough the system is successfully gamed it all falls apart when Lenny commits suicide and Maria runs instead of showing up for her followup care and finds herself admitted to a hospital with obvious signs of being an off the books organ donorAs the investigations coincide all the players start trying to clean up any collateral damage and any potential witnessesSimon and Maria run for their lives still arguing over how much danger they are really in When the entire structure completely dismantles it is just barely possible that they might be able to start over again If they can get past the mess that got them thereEscape Rating B This is a book where I have a lot of mixed feelings For some reason I found it difficult to care a lot about Simon or even Maria Simon just seems to be an emotional mess who has gotten himself in way over his head It s not that what happened with his sister isn t terribly sad it s that Simon is so good at suppressing his own emotional reactions to everything that I didn t get enough of a feel for him to well feel for himOn that other hand the case that brings down the whole house of cards did connect to a lot of my feel buttons probably because it was so real Although it isn t named specifically Leonard Pellegrini and a lot of the other ex football players who are in the support group he doesn t want to be a part of are suffering from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy CTE which is very very realWithout spoiling it completely Leonard s ultimate fate mirrors the real life case of Dave Duerson a member of the 1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl Championship Team Which explains why I remembered the caseIt is also possible that the on field hit that is responsible for Crewes guilt which gets all of them into this mess is intended to represent the case of Darryl Stingley who was paralyzed in an helmet to helmet hit during an exhibition game between the Oakland Raiders and the New England PatriotsLeonard is suffering from CTE and he s been drinking in order to make the pain and the headaches mood swings and general depression stop He doesn t want to go on living But he also isn t willing to fight all the people around him who want him to There are plenty of warning signs but Health Solutions Inc is greedy and his family is desperate It is a recipe for disaster on every sideFor me the football tie in gave me a lot feels and a lot sympathy for the reasons why everyone got themselves into this mess than anything to do with Simon or the donor Maria The football references gave the story a real life grounding that Simon and Maria s story did notHowever the football connection made the rest of the story all too plausible Whether one agrees or disagrees with the concept of organ brokering it is all too easy to believe that some variation of this is probably happeningAnd that does give me the chills Snow White and Rose Red years and Peter DaSilva the actual head of Health Solutions Inc just gets greedy So everyone ignores the warning signsThe
