Description : An Organ of Murder explores the origins of both popular and elite theories of criminality in the nineteenth-century United States, focusing in particular on the influence of phrenology. In the United States, phrenology shaped the production of medico-legal knowledge around crime, the treatment of the criminal within prisons and in public discourse, and sociocultural expectations about the causes of crime. The criminal was phrenology’s ideal research and demonstration subject, and the courtroom and the prison were essential spaces for the staging of scientific expertise. In particular, phrenology constructed ways of looking as well as a language for identifying, understanding, and analyzing criminals and their actions. This work traces the long-lasting influence of phrenological visual culture and language in American culture, law, and medicine, as well as the practical uses of phrenology in courts, prisons, and daily life.

Thirteen-year- old ‘Minnie’ Hargreaves is murdered, and her body half buried on a building site at the edge of Holme Hill, a village in West Yorkshire where she lived with her parents. David Harrison, a near-neighbour, is convicted of the crime and sentenced to life imprisonment. He dies in prison. 43 years later, Holme Hill becomes the scene of two more murders: Rhys Williams, a lonely old widower, found on a bench by the village cricket ground. A week later Peter Smith is found face down at the organ in Salem Chapel. Both corpses have a quotation from the Bible pinned to them, along with dates - the first two when Williams and Smith were murdered; the last two, dates in the future. DCI Donald May heads the investigation. Born in Holme Hill his family worshipped at Salem. The murders seem inexplicable: two blameless old men; seemingly the same murderer. A darker past emerges as May, DS Viv Trubshaw and DC Charlie Riggs investigate. Then a third murder, as forecast. May has seven days to the fourth. He discovers much more than just the murderer: all in one month; a month of murder.

Description : Book Excerpt, "The Organ Donor" !Move over Hannibal Lecter, the Organ Donor is here! The Organ Donor introduces readers to a remarkable first time author, who creates a one-of-a-kind serial killer and weaves a story so filled with unexpected twists and turns that readers are left a constant state of suspense. There are no clues, initially no bodies, and a frustrated police department with no experience dealing with a case like this one. The story begins in Scotland, as the police search for an elusive serial killer who begins sending human organs, with cryptic notes attached, to the Glasgow Metropolitan Police Department. It opens when an unidentified package lands on the desk of Detective Patrick Campbell. At first, he fears that the package might contain an IRA bomb and he calls in the bomb squad. However, he is shocked to find something even more horrific. Tucked inside a Ziploc bag, with a note hanging from it, is a set of human eyes, floating in a sea of formaldehyde. More organs begin arriving, and we feel their frustration as the detective and his task force continue to fail in their efforts to identify the victims or find the killer (now named the Organ Donor) who continues to escalate his reign of death by committing a series of murders with the bagged organs now being found near the victim's bodies. Even though the officers now know the identities of the most recent victims, they are stymied by an ingenious killer, who seems able to anticipate their every move, leaves no clues, and mocks and frustrates them. As each set of murders grows more grisly, and time goes on, they are unable to apprehend him. The suspect grows tired of searching the streets for victims and playing with the police, and decides it's time for him to go international. Next stop New York City. And he begins to wonder if he can find more excitement in New York City. At this point, the killer reveals his identity and readers join him as he commits another series of murders, following the exact same MO and producing the exact same results. As the Organ Donor reminisces about his early life we gain insight into how, over time, he began to evolve into a sadistic serial killer. With a genius IQ, he is able to play what he calls "games" with his victims, and later, with the investigators hunting him so diligently, no one is safe, even when the police, themselves, are targets. Only we know his identity, are witness to his crimes, and are aware of the machinations of his brilliant but evil mindset. The New York police are stymied, until, simply by accident and a nudge from the suspect; they discover that the Organ Donor is the same man that terrorized Scotland months before. When that connection is made, they invite the Scottish police to join them, and a task force is set up between the remaining detectives from Glasgow and the detectives in New York. Perhaps, by working together, they will be able to stop this madness. But, no, the killer continues to goad them, murder their citizens and outwit them at every turn (his twisted sense of humor intact throughout). As we move on in the story, readers find that even a sadistic genius killer can find love the last thing he expected to happen. In another of many plot twists, a woman, whom he had planned to torture and murder, is lured to the killer's house. She works as a high priced escort and believes that he is just another client. However, when a strange connection to one another brings them closer together, he begins to wonder if it is possible, even for him, to lead a more normal life. However, as the murders continue, a series of clues are left behind, with a nudge from the suspect, for the detectives to try and figure out. Might the information finally tell the investigators the one responsible for these horrendous acts of mayhem? However, even when the joint task is finally able to discover his ident

Description : To Senior Medical Examiner Dr. Beckett Campbell, the Hippocratic Oath has always been more of a suggestion than a guiding principle... Beckett is no ordinary forensic pathologist, which is why he's not surprised when a container with expertly removed organs arrives on his desk. What is alarming, however, is the note that accompanies it... the note that suggests this is only the beginning, that more are on their way. And then there's the hidden message. The one that reveals Beckett's darkest secret, the thing that sets him apart from all others. He can't go to the police, his colleagues, or even his closest friends for help. It's up to Beckett alone to figure out where the organs came from before more people die. In the process, he finds himself locked in a sadistic cat-and-mouse game with a brutal killer that has him reevaluating his own unique moral code. And when Beckett finally discovers the shocking truth about the organs' origins, he finds himself asking this question: with more than 100,000 people waiting for an organ in the US and less than 15,000 donors, who deserves to live and who deserves to die? And does Beckett have the right to choose?

Description : What do politics, living donor kidney transplants, and the current opioid crisis all have in common? Sarah Golden and Jackie Larsen, best friends since nursing school, could never have imagined that they’d end up as amateur sleuths searching to find a killer—for the second time! Jackie, a stay-at-home mom with marriage troubles, is racing the clock to get her young son, Wyatt, a living kidney donor to avoid the ravages of dialysis. Sarah, who has been living her career in the fast-paced world of organ transplantation, is helping expedite Wyatt’s kidney transplant. Then a much-despised hospital colleague turns up dead of an opiate overdose—despite the fact that she’d never used drugs—and Sarah smells foul play. Her curiosity and tenacity pull Jackie, once again, into a life-and-death adventure that neither woman could have expected. Armed with smarts, tenacity, big hearts, and their raucous senses of humor, the pair gets the help of a few colorful friends to pursue the killer and take on the mission in the only style they both know how: straight on and arm-in-arm as the friends they’ve always been.

Description : Maggie and Martin LaTour have been married just two years when she suddenly disappears during a camping trip to Mexico. When her disfigured body is discovered just a few miles from their campsite, the course of Martin’s life is changed forever. After returning to the States, Martin takes a leave of absence from his job and, while teetering precariously between mental disintegration and the need for revenge, begins to focus on a new life mission—to stop illegal aliens at all cost. Martin’s sudden mega lottery win helps him finance a bizarre assassination plan that eventually rocks the tranquility of two governments. An unprecedented but predictable public outcry of human rights violations changes Martin’s tactics from committing brutal murders to coordinating organ transplant harvesting using illegal aliens as donors. After the NSA and Interpol plot to assassinate Martin with the help of his lover and a vial of deadly Polonium, a senator’s young daughter is diagnosed with a rare disease and an organ transplant is her only hope for survival. Through murder, second chances, love, justice, and betrayal, Martin battles an extraordinary turn of events and must decide if all he has sacrificed is worth it in the end.

Description : The late 19th century was the golden age of scientific quackery, and the American West was its motherlode. Daniel Spurlock, a mentally troubled Texas orphan, turns to phrenology for clues to his brain's mysteries. His phrenological skill leads to a lucrative practice, and his discovery of the "murder organ" - the part of the human brain that instills both a predilection and a talent for homicide - brings him to the forefront of the emerging field of forensic science. But an ill-considered marriage proposal to his invaluable assistant, a disastrous pilgrimage to the Italian castle of a reckless brain surgeon, and phrenology's waning popularity shatter his carefully nurtured equilibrium and reduce him to private detective work. Called to Chicago to assist in a sensational murder trial, Spurlock comes face to face with the limits of science and reason, and the hard truths of fickle love and frontier justice.

Description : A subversive, macabre novel of a young Indian man’s misadventures in Victorian London as the city is racked by a series of murders In a small Bihari village, Captain William T. Meadows finds just the man to further his phrenological research back home: Amir Ali, confessed member of the infamous Thugee cult. With tales of a murderous youth redeemed, Ali gains passage to England, his villainously shaped skull there to be studied. Only Ali knows just how embroidered his story is, so when a killer begins depriving London’s underclass of their heads, suspicion naturally falls on the “thug.” With help from fellow immigrants led by a shrewd Punjabi woman, Ali journeys deep into a hostile city in an attempt to save himself and end the gruesome murders. Ranging from skull-lined mansions to underground tunnels a ghostly people call home, The Thing about Thugs is a feat of imagination to rival Wilkie Collins or Michael Chabon. Short-listed for the 2010 Man Asian Literary Prize, this sly Victorian role reversal marks the arrival of a compelling new Indian novelist to North America.
