Publisher's Summary

Everyone thinks Boz Gentry died in a fiery traffic accident, but Roy Ballard and Mia Madison aren't convinced. As legal videographers, it's their job to provide evidence of insurance fraud - and the more they dig into the Gentry case, the more they realize this might be the most elaborate scheme they've ever encountered. Of course, when millions of dollars are at stake, con men will take drastic steps to protect their scam - including arson, assault, or even murder. Can Roy and Mia unravel the conspiracy before the criminals get desperate enough to kill?

Light, witty, and fun suspense mystery!

Roy Ballard and Mia Madison are licensed insurance fraud photographers in Austin, Texas. This novel is rather unusual because they are neither police or private investigators. Most of their cases are suspected injury fraud cases. Yet, they always seem to run into other cases that are more complicated and dangerous. Get Busy Dying in book 2 in author Ben Rehder's four novel Roy Ballard series. I have already reviewed book 3 of the series and have just finished listening to book 1. Johnny Peppers' narration is excellent.

Meh. Not very funy and certainly not exciting.

This is the first book I've read by Ben Rehder, but I was impressed by the high ratings. I love humorous mysteries, but I didn't find this story particularly exciting or funny. The prose is sound and the dialog realistic but it was pretty clear from the outset where things were headed. For those who like mysteries with a touch of romance, the personal connection between Roy and Mia is minimal in this book but promises to blossom in future. The denouement was slapstick.

Johnny Peppers does a credible job of narration, with a kind of Texas drawl.

I don't know why this series is rated so highly; I won't be rushing out to read more.
