In a brave new world, you'll never have to die . . . as long as you keep up with the payments.

Thanks to the technological miracle of artiforgs, now you can live virtually forever. Nearly indestructible artificial organs, these wonders of metal and plastic are far more reliable and efficient than the cancer-prone lungs and fallible kidneys you were born with—and the Credit Union will be delighted to work out an equitable payment plan. But, of course, if you fall delinquent, one of their dedicated professionals will be dispatched to track you down and take their product back.

This is the story of the making—and unmaking—of one of the best Repo Men in the extraction business, who finds his soul when he loses his heart . . . and then he has to run.

This would be a lot better if it wasn't copying REPO! The Genetic Opera. Almost everything is the same between the two, but REPO! The Genetic Opera came first by a longshot. Needs to be about, 20% more original.

Brilliant book amid mainstream writers who are about as original and engaging as paris hilton. natural born writer, original - without the tag of "tryhard". Alot of writers tip the balance of a books harmony by overindulgence eg crime writers trying to outdo each other with the goriest crime scene, serial killer, huge twist at the end etc, but eric garcia has a zen to getting it just right. Seriously only 1 in a 1000 writers has that talent, and with him it is blatantly obvious.
