Item description for Stainless Steal Hearts by Harry Lee Kraus...
Overview In this medical thriller, Harry Kraus weaves the possible reality that faces a pro-choice society. Matt Stone, a promising surgical resident, uncovers a horrible secret: chief surgeon Dr. Simons and a local abortionist are running experiments on aborted fetuses and giving their hearts to infants with congenital heart problems. The pro-choice candidate for governor, Layton Redman, knows nothing of the research, but he has his own secrets to hide: an unwed staff volunteer is pregnant with his child. Redman arranges an abortion for the mother, but Stone rescues the woman from a car accident and saves the life of Redman's unborn child. As a result, Stone finds himself fighting against Simons, who has the power to end Stone's career. Can Stone and his friends gather enough evidence of the undercover experiments before he gets suspended?
Surgical resident Matt Stone has uncovered a heinous secret, and the truth must come out-even if it costs him his medical career.
Real-life surgeon Harry Kraus skillfully weaves together politics, bioethics, and hidden agendas in this compelling medical thriller. Matt Stone, a promising young surgical resident, discovers that chief surgeon Dr. Michael Simons and local abortionist Dr. Adam Richards are secretly running experiments on live aborted fetuses, "stealing" their hearts to give to infants with congenital heart problems. Both doctors' reputations depend on the secrecy of their research, which is a serious violation of hospital policy.
Meanwhile, Layton Redman, pro-choice candidate for governor, has a secret of his own-a staff volunteer is pregnant with his child. Redman arranges an abortion for the mother, but a serious car accident brings her to the emergency room, where Stone saves the life of her unborn child. This pits him against Simons, who was counting on the aborted fetus for his repulsive research project. Now Stone must gather enough evidence of the undercover experiments and expose Simons-before the vengeful chief surgeon ends his career.

A look at the future? Jul 27, 2006
"Stainless Steal Hearts" gives the reader a very disturbing look at what could happen in our future; babies being aborted alive so doctors could transplant their organs into other babies.
The main characters in the book are brought together from different aspects of what is happening in a back room of an abortion clinic. As they put the pieces together, they must decide what they will do about the information they have discovered. The twists and turns in the book are fascinating and make it difficult to put down!
The characters are believable and realistic, as is the way they work together. I am a nurse and enjoy any type of medical mystery, and an added bonus in "Stainless Steal Hearts" is that it's written from a Christian perspective.
You will think about this book long after you have finished reading it.
