Beating the Reaper is a book that attempts to educate the average citizen how to address basic trauma problems associated with a violent encounter. The idea isn’t to turn you into a field surgeon. Rather, the concept is to give you the basic knowledge on how to keep someone alive until fire rescue/EMS can evacuate you to an emergency room. What’s This Medicine Stuff All About? Beating the Reaper: Trauma Medicine for the CCW Operator is a book title that immediately caught my attention.

This was an extremely well written novel with an ingenious character. A former mob hit-man who turned on his cohorts and went into witness protection where he studied to become a doctor. When he is recognized by an old associate his past life comes crashing in to destroy the new one...but the doctor has not forgotten his old skills. There are a couple of moments that are a bit over the top, stretching plausibility almost to the breaking point, but the author carries it off well enough that it doesn't detract from the overall feel of a noir novel update. I highly recommend this one.
Whenever I discover a new style of writing I'm generally very polar. I either love it or hate it, and discover that within a few pages. I love this author's unique style but suspect it will be this divisive with everyone. It's brash, harsh, vulgar and sarcastic. As dark of humor as you could imagine, with an insight into a very conflicted personality. Bazell delivers it perfectly and by the end you feel you know this tortured character very well.

It has the anti-hero theme so common these days and you'll have a tough time deciding whether to love or hate this character, but either way you'll be interested in him. It has some unrealistic scenes for sure but it doesn't distract from the overall story much. You'll learn a few things here and there as well, delivered in a very unique fashion.

Overall I have a hard time finding an author to compare this work to, which I suppose is a compliment in itself. If you like dark gritty humor and have a strong stomach give it a shot.
This is a novel that is easy to read on a plane or in other distracting environments because it is so well plotted and paced. It also helps that it is very humorous. And viola, you have the necessary trinity for reading material when there are many other things to make you stray from the page.
"Beat the Reaper" is a fast-paced, decently written, character driven, darkly humorous thriller. The worst thing I can say about it is that it will undoubtedly be made into a very average film, and that will be a disservice. However, in spite of the cinematic elements of the text, this novel does not read like a script treatment, but is rather a full fledged story, with a very interesting and nicely developed main character. The major strength of this text in fact is the first person voice of the book's protagonist, Dr. Peter Brown. The whole novel is told from his first person point of view and goes from the present to the past with ease, and Josh Bazell does a nice job of creating gaps for the reader that pique their interest and then slowly are filled in as more of Dr. Brown's story is revealed.
As the main character is a doctor, and a former hit man, he has extensive arcane knowledge; which is shared with the reader via footnotes that appear throughout the text. I liked this stylistic device, as it works for the protagonists' medical profession, and because often times the footnotes were clever and interesting. Other readers have complained that there are many unrealistic elements to the story, and there indeed are. But the strength of Bazell's writing is that these ridiculous elements seem to work in the world he has created for "Beat the Reaper".
This novel is the first in a planned trilogy, and I intend to continue the journey.
Approach "Beat the Reaper" for what it is, and you will have a good time.
OK, Josh Bazell. I'm impressed. Blown away, actually. It's not often that I come across one of those rare novels that hooks me in the first few pages and then just won't let go, binding me to the pages and turning all plans for the day into minor obstacles getting in between me and finishing your damn book. So thanks, Josh, for trashing my day - but in such an entertaining fashion.

Dr. Peter Brown is a young intern in one of Manhattan's seedier neighborhood hospitals. But he is also Pietro "Bearclaw" Brnwa, a self-described "Easter Island sculpture of a longshoreman," a former hit man for the mob currently in the Federal Witness Protection Program. When Nicholas LoBrutto, aka Eddie Squillante, shows up in Peter's ward dying of stomach cancer, Brown knows he's been outed and that his days of playing Young Dr. Killdare are terminally numbered. So what could have been a predictable and oft-told tale of out running the mob becomes, in credit to Bazell's brilliance, a riveting romp of nearly nonstop violence and corrosive humor spanning a couple of decades and as many continents, a yarn that on the surface may feel like just another entry in the crowded shelves of pulp fiction - until the reader defibrillated into an unexpected depths of passion, insight, and scapel-edged, uninhibited cynicism that leaves no cows sacred and few conventional wisdoms unchallenged.

Josh Bazell is Charlie Huston with quotation marks. Duane Swierczynski with footnotes. Lee Child with soul. A writer with attitude and irreverence and "puddles of blood and teeth" who takes an outrageous and seemingly absurd assortment topics that run the gamut from anatomy to shark attacks to Auschwitz - and makes it all work. Bazell carves deftly between Pietro Brnwa the mobster to Peter Brown the doctor, each plot line separated by time and competing with the other in pulse, adrenaline and, surprisingly, intellect, while rushing to the most disgustingly bizarre - but satisfying - climax I can remember. That rare novel in which the ending actually does credit to, and exceeds the expectations of, the pages that lead to it.

So thanks a lot, Josh, but hey - I'll look forward to wasting another day with your next stroke of genius.
My favorite book now. Got it because of the upcoming movie (okay, because of Sebastian Stan) and LOVED it. It was fast-paced and detailed. I loved the mafia aspect and the incredible medical details. It was all portrayed so well. I went from “haven’t read a book in a year” to ripping through this in a week.
