CUT: a mystery with a mission and a side of humor

While the federal government is launching a national investigation on the “equity” of organ donation, a female tech CEO flies across the country to get a liver transplant. Soon, well-respected transplant nurse Sarah Golden and her sassy best friend, Jackie Larsen, find themselves tangled up in an intense plot to uncover the answer to the question on everyone’s mind: Can you buy your way up to the top of the transplant waiting list?

Sarah and Jackie’s pursuit of justice sends them on a sometimes fun, sometimes dangerous adventure to Miami, San Francisco, and Chicago—a roller coaster ride from which they barely escape with their lives.

Cut: A Medical Murder Mystery is now available to order on Book PassageAmazon, and Barnes & Noble
