The Wafer

The cover of the murder thriller: Hermes' Viper

Untold numbers of doomed patients await the donation of a beating heart. When black-market organs enter the equation, things can turn ugly. In ancient cultures, priests presented the still-living heart at a ceremony to appease the Gods.

In modern society, the church symbolically presents the wafer and wine. In "The Wafer," surgeons, the priests of medicine, acquire donor organs to extend another life, but playing God can have its penalties.
