Justice is just another price to pay when life hangs in the balance.
From dark, deserted alleyways to pearly clean ORs, a covert operation is being set up in Recife, Brazil, far from the watchful eyes of local law enforcement. Shrouded in secrecy, an illegal organ transplant operation offers its services to the most desperate of people, those at the very brink of death.
Hidden in plain sight, the new predators enlist a leading transplant center, as word of their operation starts to get around. But their infamy comes at a price. Soon, a determined Interpol officer is hot on the organization's heels, bent on shutting it down and bringing its ringleaders to long-overdue justice. The closer he gets the more his sense of righteousness grows – until he receives devastating news that rocks his entire world.
22 successful transplants had been performed, but when recipient 23 on the illicit transplant list hits close to home, an inconceivable choice will have to be made.
