Speaking of covers, it totally got me to read this one

Beat the Reaper
by Josh Bazell

Bazell is a Englis major who went to med school, this is his first book. It was interesting enough and a very quick read (one day), but it was definitely a first book.

Pietro is a former mafia hitman who went to med school while in witness protection. While interning at the worst hospital in America a former associate comes in with cancer. Much fun follows, plus we get to learn why Pietro became the man he is.

The book is violent and quite profane, but I will be reading his sophomore effort when he writes it. Love the cover; without it I would have never picked it up.
