One of Kang's top nine medical thrillers, as shared at CrimeReads:
Coma, by Robin Cook

This was my first introduction to Robin Cook. I was a kid in the 1970s when the movie version came out and I had nightmares over the movie posters that showed bodies suspended by filament. The concept—harvesting bodes for organs—is not new, but some of the imagery in the book was creepily new and unforgettable. A classic medical thriller.
