BOOK REVIEW: BEAT THE REAPER
BY JOSH BAZELL

We hope you enjoy this book review by Nancy Eaton.



Whether it is a secret in your past or a skeleton in your closet, they usually come back to haunt you!

Peter was raised by his grandparents. One day he found them brutally murdered. He attended a school where he became friends with Adam Locano who was the son of a Mafia lawyer. They became more like Peter’s family and after a time, he became a member of the mob working as a hit man.

Peter Brown is now a doctor at a Manhattan Catholic Hospital. He is in the Federal Protection Witness Program. One morning on his way to work, he is mugged. He did manage to hold his own throughout this ordeal.

While making his rounds one day, Peter notices a familiar face. The patient is Nicholas LoBrutto, better known to Peter as Eddy Squillante. Nicholas does not have long to live and is threatening to blow Peter’s cover if he does not do something to save his life.

What does Peter have to do in order to keep everyone in the hospital safe? Is he able to “Beat the Reaper?”

Wow! What a debut novel for Josh Bazell. This is one of those books that will make you want to stay up late so you can finish it. There is some vulgar language and some gory details but it fits right in with the story. Josh Bazell is currently a resident at the University of California and you will find many interesting, medical footnotes throughout the book. There are several quirky characters in this book and the author does an excellent job of portraying them. You will find parts of Beat the Reaper funny and other sections of it almost the opposite. If you would like a fast, entertaining, and interesting read, be sure to add, Beat the Reaper to your list of books to read. I look forward to the next novel by Josh Bazell.
