Jake Trapper isn’t your average organ acquisition specialist. He’s the best in LA. But Jake has a soft spot for underdogs, and his current case is Angel, a young girl from a broken home. She needs a kidney. So Jake makes a deal with a broker and gets seduced into the kidney business.
When a potential organ donor is killed, Jake meets LAPD Homicide Detective Megan Densmore, who enlists Jake to help with the investigation. Enter Special Agent Fuller, a Fed looking into the black market angle. He’s an oddball with an architecture fetish and an endless supply of strange tales to tell.
As more bodies surface, Special Agent Fuller turns a suspicious eye toward Jake and the noose tightens, threatening to reveal Jake’s dirty little secret.
Human Resources is a darkly comic thriller with heart, and lungs, and kidneys…and a botched monkey kidnapping.
