Book Description


See all titles by Josh Bazell.

Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient--and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder. Because that patient knows Peter from his other life, when he had a different name and a very different job. The only reason he's a doctor now is thanks to the Witness Protection Program--and even they can't protect him from the long reach of the New Jersey mob. Now he's got to do whatever it takes to keep his patient alive so he can buy some time...and beat the reaper.

"Fast, fun, furious, fierce... or better yet, stop reading the accolades for Beat the Reaper, open up to page one, and start reading. See you at the cash register." --Harlan Coben

"Beat the Reaper is a blast. Josh Bazell blew me away with this story that is as relentless as a bullet." --Michael Connelly

"I didnít want to like it. I mean, a doctor writing a novel is kind of obnoxious. What, you donít have enough to do already? But maybe thatís me. Anyway, I didnít want to like Beat the Reaper, but I did; I loved it. It is completely original, an utter page-turner, bold, shocking, hilarious, complex and even educational. Itís that book you wish you had with you when you were trapped in an airport for a three-hour flight delay. My only complaint is that Iíve already read it." --Lisa Lutz, author of The Spellman Files

"Beat the Reaper is terrific -- fresh, original, funny, and a dynamite read. Dr. Peter Brown -- aka Pietro Brnwa, aka 'the Bearclaw' -- is my new favorite character." --Robert Crais

"Beat the Reaper is way cool and ice-cold. A ferocious read." --Don Winslow
