Beat the Reaper: A Novel

Beat the Reaper (Peter Brown #1) - Josh Bazell, Robert Petkoff I finished listening to Josh Bazell's debut mystery Beat the Reaper. Bazell wrote this medical thriller while he was doing his medical residency at UCSF. If Bazell's description of what happens behind the scenes in a hospital is true, then we all better start taking our vitamins, because you do not want to be admitted to a hospital. Beat the Reaper is a story about Peter Brown, a doctor at a decrepit Manhattan hospital. Only before he was Peter Brown, he was Pietro Brwna, a Mafia hitman. This fast-paced thriller is edgy, suspenseful and comic in some places. I can see why this book has jumped to the bestseller list in just a few months. Can't wait to hear a sequel!
