Beat the Reaper left critics applauding, readers gasping, and Dr. Pietro Brnwa on the run from the mob. WILD THING finds him adrift: at sea, literally, as a cruise ship doctor under an assumed name. So when a reclusive billionaire offers him a job accompanying a sexy but self-destructive paleontologist on the world’s worst field assignment, Pietro reluctantly agrees. And that means 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, Pietro proves he’s one of the crime genre’s most exciting new heroes, in this darkly funny and lightning-paced sequel to Josh Bazell’s bestselling debut.
