“the U.S., 5,000 people die waiting for a transplant that never comes.               Supply and demand.               People need donor kidneys to survive, but only a third of all kidney transplants come from living donors and 96% of those are family members.               The demand is there, but the supply is limited, not because kidneys are not available,”

“a kidney transplant, organ traders will continue to have a thriving business. For the average American, all of these statistics mean very little and few of us are caught”

“one day, after waiting at the labor pool unsuccessfully for hours for a job to open up, he was approached by a stranger who offered to buy him a sandwich and a cup of coffee for a few minutes of his time. He figured that he had nothing to lose, so he followed the guy to Denny’s.”

Ellen Maze Hi Robert,

I loved your profile info--and because of it, I snagged your first Lady Justice book for my shelf. When I get to it, I will be sure to give you feedback.

My novels are all Christian Thrillers and Paranormal Fantasy, and I have fun with them. You and I didn't have any such in common, but I will still be following your reviews and recommendations. I'm happy we're connected.

Have a super day!
