    Expert Review :

    An in-depth report that takes readers on a shocking tour through a macabre global underworld where organs, bones and live people are bought and sold on the red market. Investigative journalist Scott Carney has spent five years on the ground tracing the lucrative and deeply secretive trade in human bodies and body parts – a vast hidden economy known as the ‘red market’. From the horrifying to the ridiculous, he discovers its varied forms: an Indian village nicknamed ‘Kidneyvakkam’ because most of its residents have sold their kidneys for cash; unscrupulous grave robbers who steal human bones from cemeteries, morgues and funeral pyres for anatomical skeletons used in Western medical schools and labs; an ancient temple that makes money selling the hair of its devotees to wig makers in America – to the tune of $6 million annually. The Red Market reveals the rise, fall and resurgence of this multibillion-dollar underground trade and explores how advances in science have increased the demand for human tissue – ligaments, kidneys, even rented space in women’s wombs – leaving little room to consider the ethical dilemmas inherent in the flesh-and-blood trade. Tragic, voyeuristic and thought-provoking, The Red Market is an eye-opening look at a little-known global industry and its implications for all our lives.
