In a ghoulish twist on the free market, humans alive and dead are being trafficked today in a thriving, multibillion-dollar business. Scott Carney's The Red Market lays bares the clandestine practices of kidnappers, thieves, and vendors of organs, blood, hair, and whatever else is marketable in human remains. Not even funeral pyres are exempt from their mercantile scrutiny: Funeral pyres are being looted for anatomical skeletons used in medical schools and labs. Carney's investigative skills imbue this narrative with fascinating, if slightly bracing detail.
