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.
BEAT THE REAPER is not just the only novel that will be compared to Quentin Tarantino's films, Grey's Anatomy, and Chuck Palahniuk-it's also the most original and entertaining debut thriller you'll read this year.

Josh Bazell has a BA in writing from Brown University and a MD from Columbia University. He is currently a medical resident at the University of California, San Francisco, and is working on his second novel.From AudioFile:
Author Josh Bazell and narrator Robert Petkoff prove to be an effective pair with this work, which will entertain listeners from beginning to end. Bazell's attention to character detail and plot twists creates an impressive work, all the more promising as this is his debut novel. Petkoff becomes central character Peter Brown, a onetime Mob hitman who is trying to rearrange his existence into something resembling a normal life. Brown is wry and intense, and Petkoff never fails to capitalize on the weighty prose that seems to come so easily to Bazell. The narrative performance benefits from the polished aesthetics of the production. L.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
