Well, Barbara has once again picked a winner in Beat the Reaper: a debut by Josh Bazell

Not only is this First Mystery Club Pick getting rave reviews:
"I didn't want to like it. I mean, a doctor writing a novel is kind of obnoxious. What, you don't have enough to do already? But maybe that's me. Anyway, I didn't 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. It's 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 I've 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, author of CHASING DARKNESS )

"BEAT THE REAPER is a blast. Josh Bazell blew me away with this story that is as relentless as a bullet." (Michael Connelly, author of THE BRASS VERDICT )

"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, auhtor of HOLD TIGHT )

"BEAT THE REAPER is way cool and ice-cold. A ferocious read." (Don Winslow, author of THE DAWN PATROL )

It is about to be a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio! (Read story) The protagonist in the novel penned by Josh Bazell is a Manhattan emergency room doctor, whose life becomes complicated when a mobster recognizes the doc from his former life as a hitman who went into the witness protection program.
