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.

It hard to tell it was so short.
The plot was the best.
Very well read
I can't recall
I love mysteries, action, thrillers, supernatural.... in general I just LOVE a great story!!
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...
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.
I have never listened to R.C. Bray before, but I would definitely listen to him again!
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 would recommend this audiobook to a friend and I have already.
It makes you imagine; 'what if this really happens."
This is one of the very few books I stayed up all night to listen to.
The plot was realistic, not far fetched and the stories of the different families or people involved were cleaverly developed. You just want to keep on listening to find out how it will all end. The narrator did a great job!
My favorite was the lawyer who changed jobs, I could not imagine how a transition like that could happen and how things would end for and his family.
There was no part that was not moving to me but the most moving part was when the pieces if the story was being put together.
This is a must read or should I say a must listen.
