Beat the Reaper

Beat the Reaper: A Novel Beat the Reaper: A Novel by Josh Bazell
My review
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think the producers of the Saw movies could take some ideas from this book. Some of the stuff is seriously messed up. Of course, this book is so much better than Saw. At its core, it is very nearly a formulaic mafia novel. Bad guy starts new life in witness protection after the mafia screws him. Mafia catches up to him, chaos ensues. But Josh Bazell manages to pull the novel out of the formula with the awesome Peter Brown/Pietro Brnwa/Bearclaw character alone. He was too much fun, and I’d love to read another Bearclaw novel, no question about it.
Next up is The Strain by Guillermo del Toro (yes, that guy) and Chuck Hogan.
