Code Blue! Win Beat the Reaper!

Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell is coming out in paperback! And it is going to be available in 3 covers! (Red, Yellow and of course - Blue!) Here is your chance to win one of 5 copies that I have to give away courtesy of Hachette Books.

Dr. Peter Brown is an intern at Manhattan's worst hospital, with a talent for medicine, a shift from hell, and a past he'd prefer to keep hidden. Whether it's a blocked circumflex artery or a plan to land a massive malpractice suit, he knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men.

Pietro "Bearclaw" Brnwna is a hitman for the mob, with a genius for violence, a well-earned fear of sharks, and an overly close relationship with the Federal Witness Relocation Program. More likely to leave a trail of dead gangsters than a molecule of evidence, he's the last person you want to see in your hospital room.

Nicholas LoBrutto, aka Eddy Squillante, is Dr. Brown's new patient, with three months to live and a very strange idea: that Peter Brown and Pietro Brnwa might-just might-be the same person ...

Now, with the mob, the government, and death itself descending on the hospital, Peter has to buy time and do whatever it takes to keep his patients, himself, and his last shot at redemption alive. To get through the next eight hours-and somehow beat the reaper.

Spattered in adrenaline-fueled action and bone-saw-sharp dialogue, BEAT THE REAPER is a debut thriller so utterly original you won't be able to guess what happens next, and so shockingly entertaining you won't be able to put it down.

I loved this trailer - you gotta watch it!

This book would be a great fall read for your book club - and you can get the reading group guide for Beat the Reaper here.

But don't stop there - you can do all sorts of stuff at the Beat the Reaper website! I played the game - it is entertaining.

So - how do you win it? Here are the rules:

  1. Five copies to giveaway.
  2. Open only to U.S. and Canada.
  3. No PO Boxes
  4. All entries can be in one comment.

  6. +2 if you are a new or old follower - but please let me know. How ever you follow - each will count for 2 entries apiece (Twitter, Facebook, Google, Feed Reader, Email, etc, etc, etc)
  7. +3 if you post this on any social network or blog LEAVE A LINK TO GET BACK TO THIS POST OR IT WILL NOT COUNT - If you post on Twitter - please use @kherbrand and link to this post. Go Crazy! No Limits on Entries!
  8. +3 for referrals of NEW followers - New followers - tell me who referred you and you will get those +3 also!
  9. Giveaway ends on Oct 11.
