The Doctor will see you now....

Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan ER Doctor who has a past he'd prefer to stay hidden. When a figure from the old days emerges it looks increasingly unlikely that his secret will stay intact.
Nicholas LoBrutto, aka Eddy Squillante, is given three months to live, and it's clear to Peter that the clock is ticking for both of them. He must do whatever it takes to keep him - and his patient - alive.

It's time to beat the reaper....

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hold on to your hats. Josh Bazell's first novel is a roller-coaster ride from the very first page, fast, furious, and - believe it or not - funny...A cross between ER and the Sopranos, this is House on speed, with a little Dexter thrown in and wisecracking dialogue to boot. It's breathtakingly accomplished for a debut. Bazell is a name to watch * Daily Mail *
Funny and outrageous, with a great central character and the energy and frenetic pace sustained throughout...Determinedly cynical about the US medical system and with informative footnotes * Guardian *
The novel speeds you like an emergency-room patient on a gurney through 300 pages of adrenalin-fuelled action, medical drama, mob dealings and stomach-turning violence * Scotland on Sunday *
Beat the Reaper is way cool and ice cold. A ferocious read -- Don Winslow
Beat the Reaper is a blast. Josh Bazell blew me away with this story that is as relentless as a bullet -- Michael Connelly

“Exciting and surprising”

This is a book that starts as it means to go on. It starts with a fight between a rat and pigeon (we are not told who won) and the action does not let up.
This is not crime fiction as we know it - yes, there is the... More
