** spoiler alert ** NOTE; This is the 1st book I read on my new KINDLE! I love it. Read the 1st page: You'll be hooked like I was. Pietro lost the grandparents who raised him in a tragic murder committed by mob hit men. He ends up in medical school & becomes a doctor who keeps running into his former mob associates: Only 7 chapters read & I'm entranced, some language, but it fits the tenor of the story Weds: finished it last night: awesome book, awesome writer. The medical information is terrifying to somebody who will be having surgery in 6 days!!! Bazell is an MD (Columbia) so he probably knows what he's talking about: even scarier. This man has a great future in crime fiction. If you like Dennis Lehane or James Lee Burks you will LOVE this book.
