Amy Peele was born and raised in the Chicago area, where she graduated from South Chicago School of Nursing. She discovered her passion for organ donation and transplantation when she started as a transplant coordinator at University of Chicago, and has since enjoyed a thirty-five-year career in transplantation in both Illinois and California. Peele has lived and worked in the San Francisco area since 1985 and has been writing creatively for over fifteen years. In addition to killing people in her murder mysteries, she enjoys meditating, yoga, swimming, and pursuing her spirituality by studying the teachings of Deepak Chopra.
While the federal government is launching a national investigation on the “equity” of organ distribution a female tech CEO flies across country to get a liver transplant. Soon, well-respected transplant nurse Sarah Golden and her best friend, Jackie, 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 waiting list? Their pursuit of justice brings them to Miami, San Francisco, and Chicago—a sometimes fun, sometimes dangerous roller coaster ride from which they barely escape with their lives.
