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.
