Publisher's Summary

Waverly Sloan is a down-on-his-luck lawyer. But just when he's about to hit rock bottom, he stumbles upon a business with the potential to solve all of his problems.
In Waverly's new line of work, he comes to the aid of people in desperate need of cash. But there's a catch. His clients must be terminally ill and willing to sign over rights to their life insurance policies before they can collect a dime. Waverly then finds investors eager to advance them thousands of dollars - including a hefty broker's fee for himself - in exchange for a significant return on their investment once the clients take their last breath.
The stakes get higher when Waverly brokers the policy of the cancer-stricken wife of Lawrence Erickson, a high-powered lawyer who's bucking to become the next U.S. Attorney General. When Waverly's clients start dying sooner than they should, both Waverly and Erickson - who has some skeletons of his own to hide - are unwittingly drawn into a perilous web of greed, blackmail, and murder.

Good Legal Thriller

Just came across this book because it sounded interesting. I needed to break out of a rut of reading the same dozen authors.

The characters seemed like real people I could identify with and since it was based in Los Angeles I knew so many of the references of places.

I learned a lot about buying insurance policies from dying patients which gave it an overall introspective to something I didn't even know existed. There are twists and turns and like some other review wrote a wonderful cross of Lisa Scottoline and Robert Crais.both of whose books and style I enjoy.

Easy to follow the characters which is a pet peeve of mine. If there are too many characters and you are not reading it all of the time you lose each back story. I was there with Angela and Dre the whole way. Not sure if they will make it however.

She has another book in the series coming which is next on my list.

R. C. Bray was outstanding with the delivery of the story

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Great legal thriller!

Viatical settlements: arrangements whereby persons with a terminal illness sell their life insurance policies to third parties for less than their mature value in order to benefit from the proceeds while alive.

This novel is about abuse of viatical settlements. Pamela Samuels Young has written an outstanding legal, suspense, and action thriller. This is Book 1 in her Angela Evans series. I reviewed Book 2 earlier. This is the third Pamela Samuels Young legal thriller I have listened to and all have been great! I'll definitely listen to the rest of her books.

I tend to think of RC Bray as a science fiction novel narrator, but he also narrates thrillers. I've listened to many of the books he has narrated and his performances are ALWAYS 5 star.

Highly recommended!
