The God Organ by Anthony J Melchiorri

Immortality is within reach. 
In 2063, a biotechnological revolution sweeps the nation. Behind this movement is Chicago-based medical giant LyfeGen. The company leads the biotech industry with their Sustain, an implantable artificial organ designed to grant its recipients near-immortality. But many of those recipients are suddenly dying. 
Biomedical scientist Preston Carter developed the Sustain to improve and save lives. Yet there are others that would see him fail. Extreme religious groups, radical movements, and competing corporations would prefer to see LyfeGen collapse rather than allow “the god organ” to fundamentally alter medicine and the human body. In a race against time, Carter must learn to trust resourceful journalist Audrey Cook. She may hold the key to discovering who is sabotaging the Sustain. And with the organ already implanted in his own body, Carter must uncover the truth before he’s killed by his invention. 
THE GOD ORGAN is a near-future medical thriller that takes the reader on a suspenseful ride filled with sinister conspiracies, intriguing biomedical science, and rampant corruption that will leave readers wondering just how dangerous becoming a god may really be. 

Anthony J Melchiorri is a writer and biomedical engineer living in Maryland. He spends most of his time developing cardiovascular devices for tissue engineering to treat children with congenital heart defects when he isn't writing or reading.

In the year 2036 an implant called Sustain is supposed to prevent terminal and genetic illnesses to those who can afford it, and only the very wealthy can afford it. The problem is instead of prolonging life, implant patients are dying.

First off, sci-fi is not a genre I tend to read much of, it takes a killer storyline to get me in. The God Organ did just that, it intrigued me and I had to read it.
This one took me a few days to read, usually I'm about a book a day reader but this one required me to pay close attention so I didn't miss a single thing.
The story is told from multiple POV which in most stories would be confusing or annoying throwing off the stories pace but Melchiorri makes it work, it added to the story rather than losing the reader.
The book is well written and draws the reader in at the very beginning kept me turning the pages waiting for more.
I look forward to reading more from the author in the future.
