Inhaltsangabe zu „Beat the Reaper“ von Josh Bazell

Dr. Peter Brown is an intern at Manhattan's worst hospital, with a talent for medicine, a shift from hell, and a past he'd prefer to keep hidden. Whether it's a blocked circumflex artery or a plan to land a massive malpractice suit, he knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men.§Pietro "Bearclaw" Brnwna is a hitman for the mob, with a genius for violence, a well-earned fear of sharks, and an overly close relationship with the Federal Witness Relocation Program. More likely to leave a trail of dead gangsters than a molecule of evidence, he's the last person you want to see in your hospital room.§Nicholas LoBrutto, aka Eddy Squillante, is Dr. Brown's new patient, with three months to live and a very strange idea: that Peter Brown and Pietro Brnwa might-just might-be the same person ...§Now, with the mob, the government, and death itself descending on the hospital, Peter has to buy time and do whatever it takes to keep his patients, himself, and his last shot at redemption alive. To get through the next eight hours-and somehow beat the reaper. §Spattered in adrenaline-fueled action and bone-saw-sharp dialogue, BEAT THE REAPER is a debut thriller so utterly original you won't be able to guess what happens next, and so shockingly entertaining you won't be able to put it down.

Stöbern in Krimi & Thriller

Du sollst nicht leben

interessant zu lesen, aber so richtig gepackt hat mich dieser Thriller nicht.



Spannender Krimi


Kalte Seele, dunkles Herz

Interessanter Einblick in eine psychisch gestörte Familie, aber mit Thriller hat das nicht viel zu tun!


Ich soll nicht lügen

Sarah J. Naughton ist ein wirklich tolles Buch gelungen, das grausam, krank, spannend und bei all dem wirklich gut lesbar ist.


Die Party

Ein sehr lesenswertes Buch, fesselnd, ehrlich und auch sehr berührend



Wer Gänsehaut mit „echtem“ Monster möchte, für den ist „Seelenkinder“ genau richtig.

    Beat the Reaper

    I´m not quite sure whether this is a good book or whether I really liked it or not. It´s definately interesting and different from most other books. The author has a deep knowledge of all kind of medical things (probably due to his MD) and seems to have the same amount of knowledge about mob business (hopefully due to his rich fantasy). The book is a combination of both, sometimes incredibly funny, sometimes disturbing, but never boring. So, no recommendation as such, apart from: Read the book and judge by yourself. "But rituals turn us all into fucking idiots. Like those birds that sleep with their heads facing backwards because their ancestors slept with their heads under their wings. Plutarch says carrying new wives across thresholds is stupid because we don´t remember that it refers to the rape of the Sabine women - and that´s fucking PLUTARCH, two thousand years ago. We still draw the Reaper with a scythe. We should draw him driving a John Deere for Archer Daniels Midland."
