Beat the Reaper: A Novel (Dr. Pietro Brnwa Novels)

Beat the Reaper - Josh Bazell After reading this one I cringed at the idea of ever being admitted to a hospital! This well-written thriller made me sympathize with a former mafia hitman turned doctor and was just right for passing a 3-hour flight. It's chock full of four letter words, and it gets a bit graphic with the medical/homicide details but doesn't overdo the jargon. Maybe a good one for fans of Chuck Palahniuk?
