Wild Thing by Josh Bazell
(Little, Brown and Co., 2012, 388 pages)
After obtaining his medical education from a foreign country, Peter Brown decides to practice medicine aboard cruise ships and other places that will not necessarily call on true medical expertise. He responds to a job advertisement from a reclusive billionaire and accepts a mysterious assignment to accompany a sexy but self-destructive paleontologist to locate the sea monster who is accused of killing several people on a hidden lake. This tale is a bit bizarre, but if you are into murder, monsters, and drug dealers it will be up your alley.
