The writing is smart, fast and super-charged with raw emotion! And that even feels like I'm understating. I listened to this book on audio CD and was hooked from the first paragraph - just hearing the story delivered by reader Robert Petkoff was an experience in itself. Protagonist Dr. Peter Brown is a supremely confident ex-mobster whose smooth handling of tense situations is a trait we all wish we had, but he's got a past that comes with a price. It's non-stop from the get-go as he labors to keep his patients and himself alive, AKA beat the reaper.

There's a movie version with Leonardo DiCaprio attached to it slated for a 2012 release. I'm very much looking forward to that as well as reading Josh Bazell's next work.
