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.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "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!

    "crazyness"

    There is a lot of craziness going on with this one, and I loved it. While walking the treadmill at the gym and listening to this book, I lost track of time. Some days I just sat in the car listening to this madness. I needed to know what would happen next. Needless to say I just bought three more from this author. The narrator hit it out the park, looking for more of his work to.

    "FANTASTIC"

    This story had me from the start. I love a good mystery and R.C. Bray is one of the best narrators I have listened to. I finished the book and went straight back and bought the next in the series

    "Pleasantly Suprised"
    Where does Buying Time rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I ran across this book by accident and I'm so glad I did. Great narration and great writing


    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think Bray does a good job of channeling each character.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is definitely worth the credit.

    Story
    "A REAL LIFE FICTION!!!"
    What did you love best about Buying Time?

    Where do I begin.....
    Firstly, the controversial topic of focus represents situations that many people are currently facing. The decision making of all of the characters are underscored by power, greed, money, and morals. It's not only about survival, but also about the ways by which people choose to survive, and what they think they need to survive. All of those thoughts are challenged in this book.

    Just when you think you know what's going on, the author drops another bone in the pot! The storyline is full circle and the ending is not rushed. The pace never slows.

    The author had done her researched and is well equip to illustrate the complexities through her words.

    I love the narrator's voice...

    I just loved this book...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Waverly Slone.... talk about the king of misfortunate events. He is challenged through out the book, he is not depicted like a superman. He experiences the ebbs and flows of life and learns his lesson in the end.


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to R.C. Bray before, but I would definitely listen to him again!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! Matter of fact, I usually work slowly through audio books, but not this one; I usually give myself a week or two, but this one I finished in three days.

    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!

    Story
    "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

    Would you consider the audio edition of Buying Time to be better than the print version?

    It hard to tell it was so short.

    The plot was the best.


    What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    Very well read


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I can't recall

    Story
    "Countdown to death."

    This was a very interesting story. It kept my attention from page one. And as the story progresses, the faster the story went with twists, subplots and changes.

    When the story really picked up speed, my only problem was telling the male characters apart. Although the narrator did a great job, there were no changes in pitch or traits to assist the reader keep track of the change. Since most of the dialog is between men, I caught myself having to go back a couple of minutes to figure out who was speaking when I got distracted.

    I throughly enjoyed the book and plan on checking out the authors other books.

    "Check the abridged"

    This was an interesting story, that at times had you fully engrossed in the mystery, however there were long sections, particularly those that focused on the relationship, that although important were longwinded and detracted from the important sections of the story.



    As the story progressed I found myself really connecting with the lead character, and found the story strong in terms of never seeing the outcome until the later stages of the book.



    I recommend the book, but would limit myself to the abridged version rather that the unabridged!
