Overview

A thriving black market exists for human body parts. In a warehouse outside artsy Tubac, Arizona, corrupt surgeons slaughter illegal Mexican immigrants. Las Vegas mobsters, who smuggle them in, sell their parts to well-heeled patients, vying for hearts, kidneys and more in Mexican surgeries. Syndicated columnist, Carrie Linden, is 35 and gorgeous. She also has a drinking problem and a compulsion for risk-taking. Upon discovering a horrific body harvesting operation, Carrie and lover, wealthy attorney Michal Taylor inform the local Sheriff who refuses to investigate. Carrie embarks on a death-defying race to end these atrocities. She's blinded by her quest to bring justice to evildoers who exploit the weak. Despite Michael's insistence she quit, Carrie puts herself and others in harms way. Time is short; the next operation is scheduled. Body Parts is the second installment of a bone-chilling trilogy. It paints a gruesome portrait of this black market and the psyche of those who run it.

The aye yi yi reviewer can't even spell. Guess that reviewer can't read either because I recall a few good guys over 6 feet. Must have read a different book. This was a great read with well-rounded characters and multiple exciting plots. The bandidos are truly nasty dudes but funny too. I hope this author comes through with a sequel because I'll buy it.

I felt his first book was interesting and worth reading.  This one fell slightly short.  I just do not find the characters believable in this book.  Plus, I think the author repeats too much of what was in the first book into this second book, which made it somewhat boring.

This book is definately written by an amateur. Too much filler with non important info which makes it dull and boring. Every male character except for the muscle men are under 5'8". Makes me wonder about the author. I am currently on page 125 and doubt I will finish it. Could have been a good plot if the talent had been better. Only saving factor is that I did'nt spend a bundle on it.
