about

“An unforgettable nonfiction thriller, expertly reported….A tremendously revealing and twisted ride, where life and death are now mere cold cash commodities.”
—Michael Largo, author of Final Exits

Award-winning investigative journalist and contributing Wired editor Scott Carney leads readers on a breathtaking journey through the macabre underworld of the global body bazaar, where organs, bones, and even live people are bought and sold on The Red Market. As gripping as CSI and as eye-opening as Mary Roach’s Stiff, Carney’s The Red Market sheds a blazing new light on the disturbing, billion-dollar business of trading in human body parts, bodies, and child trafficking, raising issues and exposing corruptions almost too bizarre and shocking to imagine.

Scott Carney is an investigative journalist with a decade of experience living and researching in India. He is a contributing editor atWiredmagazine. His reporting has also appeared on NPR, CBC, BBC, and National Geographic TV, and inMother Jones,Fast Company,Discover, andForeign Policy. He lives in Long Beach, California.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Red Market Picked this book up randomly and was very impressed. It discusses human organ trafficking and kidnapping in a manner that is interesting and informative. I found that chapters were short enough that I didn't get bored and the addition of a few pictures was a nice bonus. Definitely recommend this to anyone interested in healthcare and organ transplant, really makes you wonder where those organs came from. ** This is a book based on American healthcare, but in a lot of cases I found it could be applied to Canada as well.
