THE FIFTH VIAL—Michael Palmer,M.D.--A frightening look at trafficking in human organs for transplant, together with a plea to the reader (in the afterward) to consider being an organ donor. Through three separate situations involving procurement and distribution, Dr. Palmer outlines the debates, pros and cons. A runner, doctor to be, a 'slow' boy of 20, a waitress, a Physician involved in developing a 'miracle cure', an Arabic leader and a multi-national medical corporation are the focuses of the activity. A good set of interconnected stories posing some serious questions. By the way, Plato is featured with quotes from The Republic at the beginning of each chapter. Interesting for reading and thought.
