ONE OF THE MOST UNUSUAL BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ...FASCINATING CHARACHTERS AND WILD PACING...AND THE FOOTNOTES ARE EVEN BETTER THAN THE STORY WHICH IS WACKY AND VERY ENTERTAINING. THE SECOND BOOK IN 2012 IS EQUALLY AS GOOD
"When Dr. Peter Brown is mugged and it's the mugger who needs medical treatment, it comes as no big surprise that Brown is a former mob hit man now in the witness protection program. Between flashbacks that explain just how he got into killing for the mob (and why he left) and fascinating facts about medicine, Brown must make rounds, save his patients, find one that's gone missing, survive a needle stick, take just enough pills to keep him awake and functioning, and avoid getting killed himself. If you like medical dramas or high action, drop whatever you're doing and pick up a copy of this violent, funny, and highly enjoyable book -- stat. You can follow up with Wild Thing, the 2nd in the series."

My first time reading Bazell, laugh out loud funny reminds me a little of richard kadrey (sandman slim) very very good.
It takes a lot for a book to make me squirm and this one did it. The blend of Medical Drama and witness protection Mafia hit man was thrilling and the wonderful, if somewhat blunt, narration by Pietro knocked my socks off.
This book is about revenge, being a doctor in the witness protection program and the mob. It is funny, fast paced and so good I read it in only a couple of days. I highly recommend this if you are looking for something light and entertaining.
I'm not sure how I stumbled across this title, or even why I read it. Mob hijinks and wiseguys are a far cry from my usual preferred subjects. And yet...I can't wait to read the next in the series! Pietro is charming, intelligent, and quite possibly the most brutally practical narrator I've ever encountered (witness the freezer scene toward the end of the story). Yeesh.
This tongue in cheek mobster page turner kept me chuckling all the way through.
Heir apparent to Chuck Palahniuk. Entertaining and original.
Jack Reacher meets (Dr.) House.
Loved the footnotes and the medical info. (The author is a doctor.)
