Book Summary

7 stolen organs. 1 vengeful victim. A gruesome sci-fi thriller.

Organ scrubbing was a bloody job, but somebody had to do it. Daniel, an orphan from the Gutter, was put to work scrubbing kidneys at aged twelve. The job had its perks: a warm bed, Law and Order reruns, and an all-you-can-eat Mopane worm buffet … Until the Orphanage stole Daniel’s parts, and sold them on the organ market.

Now Daniel has grown up, and yearns to become whole again. The cybernetic organ replacements just aren’t the same – he needs his parts back. But the new owners of his organs won’t give them up. Not without a fight.

Just how far will Daniel go to regain his missing pieces? And how much more of himself will he lose along the way?

Defragmenting Daniel is a cyberpunk crime thriller that will unnerve you. Every part of you.

Here's what readers are saying about this sci-fi thriller:

"Set in a chilling, futuristic world, this psychological thriller is a stark and moving experience. Defragmenting Daniel is a classy cyberpunk tale, not for the fainthearted. Suffocating and enticing, Jason Werbeloff's characters are compelling and his plot gripping. Powerful sci-fi that will keep readers rapt, this is a work of great imagination." -

"Hop on this cybernetic rocket ride and enjoy the spectacle. Werbeloff's characters are complex, and quickly imprint themselves on the reader's mind. The resultant feel is similar to the excitement of reading early 2,000 AD comics or Stephen King's Long Walk or Running Man." - Writing in Starlight, author of 'The Psychonaut'

"Not a story for the squeamish or the faint of heart, Werbeloff doesn't hold anything back. I read this book in one sitting. I couldn't sleep without knowing what happened on Daniel's quest." - Books and Quilts

"The story has a purpose - it's not just gore, masked by an adorable face. There's something that spoke to me, even in the violence." - Books! Books! Books!

"The whole thing is sick and ingenious and I love it." - White Sky Project

"A sharp, punchy dark action story that weaves through a rich and vivid dystopian city." - Abi Godsell, Author of 'Idea War'

"It challenged me and expanded my consciousness. Imperfect people wanting to be perfect, androids wanting to be human, old people wanting to be young forever. And someone has to suffer for it." - N Tredoux, Amazon Reviewer

"I was hooked from the beginning and read it in one sitting. This is Werbeloff at his very best." - Taf Kadd, Amazon Reviewer

"Gory, violent, and deliciously weird. Just how I like my sci-fi. Wildly imaginative with great pacing, it's a wonderfully dark ride." - aeonuna, Amazon Reviewer

"An edge-of-your-seat thriller." - Ed Thompson, Amazon Reviewer

"A breath of fresh Sci-Fi air!" - Wesley Henry, Amazon Reviewer

"Obscene, uncomfortable, gruesome, and completely compelling!" - David A. Vance, Amazon Reviewer

"A fast-paced and heart pounding visceral experience." - DAVID N FILKINS, Amazon Reviewer

"Werbeloff never ceases to gently shock and amaze with his fantastically warped depictions." - Amazon Customer

"Werbeloff has found a way to mystify and gross you out at the same time!" - Alyssa, Amazon Reviewer

"Be ready for some blood, a little killing and more than one surprise." - Michael Reiter, Amazon Reviewer

"Defragmenting Daniel is a thrilling read, violent at times, but it all serves the narrative and never feels like gratuitous violence. You quickly come to care for Daniel, and hope he succeeds in his bloody quest to defragment himself. I enjoyed every minute of the book, and am looking forward to the sequels." - KS, Amazon Reviewer
