So I'm on my way to work and I stop to watch a pigeon fight a rat in the snow, and some fuckhead tries to mug me!
This was a strange book and nearly a month later and I'm still at war with myself as to whether or not I truly liked it.
Peter Brown, aka Pietro Brwna, used to be a hitman for the mob. Killing people - bad people, lots of people. Then one day he went into the WITSEC program and emerged as Peter Brown, doctor. When a patient at the hospital recognizes him for who he once was, the race is on...to stay alive.
Like I said, it was strange. I liked it, I didn't love it, I made it through it, but I'm not sure I'd put it on my top 10 or even top 25 list for the year.
Maybe I'll like the movie better.
