Waiting on Wednesday: Wild Thing by Josh Bazell

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


It's hard to find work as a doctor when using your real name will get you killed. So hard that when a reclusive billionaire offers Dr. Peter Brown, aka Pietro Brnwa, a job accompanying a sexy but self-destructive paleontologist on the world's worst field assignment, Brown has no real choice but to say yes. Even if it means that an army of murderers, mobsters, and international drug dealers-not to mention the occasional lake monster-are about to have a serious Pietro Brnwa problem.

Facing new and old monsters alike, Dr. Brnwa's story continues in this darkly funny and lightning-paced follow up to Josh Bazell's bestselling debut.

I adored BEAT THE REAPER and now a new one from Josh Bazell looks like it is done and ready for release!


  1. Seeing this reminds me I need to read Beat the Reaper. I remember being so excited to get it because I heard so much about how great it was and now I haven't read it yet. With the next book coming out it's time to read it. So thank you for that reminder :)

    Here is my WoW.

  2. Great book pick! Thanks for sharing.

    ps. Your blog banner is awesome!

  3. Good choice, enjoy!

  4. Didn't realize there would be another tale! The cover sure compliments Beat the Reaper.

  5. I was going to listen to Beat the Reaper from the library and it was on wait list and I totally forgot to check back.
    Sounds like this one is a good one too!


Thanks for leaving a note! I try to reply to all conversations!
