Book Giveaway: Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell


Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell looks way too HOT to pass up, and I'm giving away 3 copies thanks to Hachette Book Group!

Contest Runs through Friday, October 9, 2009.

About the Book:
Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell
Paperback: 336 pages
Publisher: Back Bay Books; Reprint edition (September 14, 2009)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0316032212
ISBN-13: 978-0316032216

Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder. Because that patient knows Peter from his other life, when he had a different name and a very different job. The only reason he's a doctor now is thanks to the Witness Protection Program-and even they can't protect him from the long reach of the New Jersey mob. Now he's got to do whatever it takes to keep his patient alive so he can buy some time...and beat the reaper.

BEAT THE REAPER is not just the only novel that will be compared to Quentin Tarantino's films, Grey's Anatomy, and Chuck Palahniuk-it's also the most original and entertaining debut thriller you'll read this year.

Check out this book trailer!

It should be no surprise that an adaptation of Beat the Reaper is already in development to hit the big screen with Leo DiCaprio in 2010. So, if you're a movie lover AND a book lover, this is one book you need to get your hands on. And you can!
