I miss J. Kaye

O the blog is still there but my lady friend is not and I am so late on this one! 
From J. Kaye's Book Blog, I won an audio copy of Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell. 
Beat the Reaper
Hachette has this as a description:
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.
Now, if that doesn't suck you in, I don't know what else I can say except, I really liked it! It's offbeat, different, and a good listen!  
Check the book or cd and J. Kaye's Book Blog for good stuff!

That is the reason why a lot of people do not know about
it. When one mentions about a phone, he or she may be talking about either the telephone or the mobile version or the cellular phones.
” These once-common American phrases are apparently
headed for the dust heap of history, along with “That and
a dime will get you a cup of coffee.
