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.

If you are a mindless liberal you might like the story. If you have any intelligence and you are a conservative, don't waste your time on Bazell.

Summary or Wild Thing with the "surprise" ending, it is all the republicans fault and some idiot put a shark in the water.

What an odd follow-up to Bazell's sensational 2009 debut novel, Beat the Reaper.

Much of the edgy dialogue and action I expect from Bazell still delivers, and you gotta love the footnotes, but the tonal direction seems off. Our tough-guy protagonist, Pietro Brwna (now with the alias Lionel Azimuth), travels to northern Minnesota to investigate a series of bizarre deaths caused by what is thought to be a Loch Ness-type monster living in a remote lake. I'll admit when I first read this plot synopsis I thought it was a joke. It's like Pietro's story took a timeout from evading the mob in order to solve an X-Files mystery.

Fortunately, the book holds together and by the end we're left with the promise that our hero's woes are far from over.
