We’re going to give away five (5) trade paperback copies of Beat the Reaper, a fun debut novel from author and M.D. Josh Bazell. This is a debut thriller “so utterly original you won’t be able to guess what happens next.” (Google Books) Beat the Reaper is about Pietro Brnwa, a contract killer for the Mafia, who winds up entering the federal Witness Protection Program. In order to keep him safe, the feds turn Pietro into Dr. Peter Brown, a reknowned surgeon. Well, it turns out that mobster Eddy Squillante, who knows Pietro, is scheduled to have surgery for stomach cancer. When “Dr. Peter Brown” comes to consult with Squillante prior to surgery, the jig may be up. Or is it?
It seems that Squillante may be willing to bargain with “Dr. Brown,” and keep his identity safe if Pietro/Peter can keep Squillante on planet Earth. This sounds like a real fun ride… As per the New York Times, it’s a tale of a person who now “heals people instead of murdering them”!
Thanks to Valerie at Hachette Book Group for providing the giveaway copies.
