My Tease:
"So I'm on my way to work and I stop to watch a pigeon fight a rat in the snow, and some f++khead tries to mug meNaturally there's a gun."
~ pg 1 Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell

I won this book from LargeheartedBoy and it came with a tshirt depicting that very first line - crazy huh? Here is the cover blurb for a little more background:

Dr. Peter Brown is an intern at Manhattan's worst hospital. He has a talent for medicine, a shift from hell, and a past he'd prefer to keep hidden.

Pietro Brnwa is a hit man for the mob, with a genius for violence, a well-earned fear of sharks, and an overly close relationship with the Federal Witness Protection Program.

Nicolas LoBrutto is Dr. Brown's new patient, with three months to live and a very strange idea: that Peter Brown and Pietro Brnwa might - just might - be the same person...

As goons, G-men, and death itself descends on the hospital, Dr. Brown must do whatever it takes to save his patients, himself, and his last shot at redemption. He just has to get through the next eight hours - and somehow beat the Reaper.
