Ben Callahan
Created by Michael Palmer

Disillusioned Chicago private eye Ben Callahan is hired to investigate the cause of death of a oddly mutilated corpse found on a Florida highway in Michael Palmer's The Fifth Vial, a 2007 medical thriller set amidst the murky world of illegal transplant organ trading. Along the way, Ben teams up with young, headstrong Harvard medical student whiz kid Natalie Reyes who's recently lost a lung following a botched kidnapping attempt, and the case leads them to the Whitestone Foundation, a respectable front for a not-so-respectable but very well-funded clandestine organization of medical specialists who have their own secret hospital tucked away in the Brazillian rain forest.
