Wild Thing: A Novel No es tan bueno como Beat the Ripper pero entretiene y a ratos es muy bueno. Sería mejor con nuevos personajes.
Wild Thing by Josh Bazell. Sequel to Beat the Reaper. Signing event March 5th 2012 at The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale Arizona. $26.00. SFE in my future!
Beat the Reaper left critics applauding, readers gasping, and Dr. Pietro Brnwa on the run from the mob. WILD THING finds him adrift: at sea, literally, as a cruise ship doctor under an assumed… read more at Kobo.
Wild Thing (Peter Brown #2). July 2012. I liked first in series - Beat the Reaper - and enjoyed this as well.
Wild thing : a novel / Josh Bazell / "When a reclusive billionaire offers Dr. Peter Brown, a.k.a. Pietro Brnwa, a job accompanying a sexy but self-destructive paleontologist on the world's worst field assignment, Brown has no real choice but to say yes. Even if it means that an army of murderers, mobsters, and international drug dealers--not to mention a lake monster--are about to have a serious Pietro Brnwa problem."

His first book, Beat the Ripper, was a thrill ride! I have been waiting over a year for this

Books, the Universe and Everything || So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson #bookreview
Today via social media, not only is it possible for an individual to make waves in the public image of a small business or large corporation, but an average person can — with one bad decision or incidence of less-than-stellar behavior — negatively impact their life and reputation for the long term. The book cover pictured above is So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson. Inspired by the author's 2012 online identity theft, after which he confronted the ...
For the past three years, Jon Ronson has travelled the world meeting recipients of high-profile public shamings. The shamed are people like us - people who, say, made a joke on social media that came out badly, or made a mistake at work. Once their transgression is revealed, collective outrage circles with the force of a hurricane and the next thing they know they're being torn apart by an angry mob, jeered at, demonized, sometimes even fired from their job.A great renaissance of public sham

Extremely entertaining yet gross and violent series. Whiskey Sour (Jack Daniels Mystery, #1)
Whiskey Sour by J.A. Konrath is a crime thriller and available on kindle's lending library at the time of this review. Though some of the themes and descriptions are grisly and dark this is a light read with some nice characterization and suspense. The dialogue is snappy but trying too hard at times, eliciting more eye rolls than chuckles. Overall it's not bad for something I could just rent and I would definitely visit with Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels again.

Medical and Legal Thrillers booklist- Thrillers and mysteries that feature characters of the legal and medical profession solving life and death puzzles.
Josh Bazell has a rapier wit and a story telling ability that is unmatched. Great medical background with lots of action and humor mixed throughout. Probably my favorite book of all time.
My other favorite book this year (in addition to Ready Player One.) Fantastic writing, kinetic plot, darkly funny dialogue, twists and turns like crazy. Bazell does an asounding job for his first novel, and Robert Petkoff's reading makes the audiobook version the one to beat. He just manages to embody this character, which is not an easy character to perform.
Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell. Seriously, A MUST READ. My favorite book.
it's like the greatest action movie of your LIFE in a book. brilliant!

Fantasric book..read years ago at 18..lol..pretty wild for then..still a great book..same life in modern times..sins never change...worth the read.
Valley of the Dolls- Jacqueline Susann, I don't care how trashy it is, I LOVE IT! #guiltypleasure
VALLEY OF THE DOLLS - Jacqueline Susann #1 bestseller of the year - Valley of the Dolls was an instant success when it was first published. Since then it has sold more than 30 million copies. As the first roman à clef by a female author to achieve this level of sales in America, it led the way for other authors such as Jackie Collins to depict the private lives of the real-life rich and famous under a veneer of fiction.

“I didn't go to bookshops to buy. That's a little bourgeois. I went because they were civilized places. It made me happy there were people who sat down and wrote and wrote and wrote and there were other people who devoted their lives to making those words into books. It was lovely. Like standing in the middle of civilization.” ― Jerry Pinto, Em and The Big Hoom (Bookstore in Madrid, re-pinned by www.jane-davis.co.uk)

I have Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks here on my To Read shelf, and I've seen the movies of Life of Pi and Lovely Bones but haven't read them yet. I think this is a pretty good reading list, although it ought to include Joyce Carol Oates!
