Description on Book
Fraudulent car accidents is a multi-million dollar racket, involving unscrupulous medical providers, personal injury attorneys, and the cooperating passengers involved in the accidents—and who also receive a portion of the illegal proceeds. Such is the fate of newly engaged, Nathan and Shari, whose joy is tempered by the dark cloud of mounting debt.
A chance encounter with a stranger in whom Shari confides her troubles proves fortuitous: he tells her of a get-rich-quick scheme that will put her and her fiancé on easy street. Seduced by the chance to move from hard times to good times in no time, Sheri takes the carrot offered her, and finds herself acting as a “stuffed passenger”—the “victim” in a staged auto accident. The act goes according to plan and Shari gets her payday, but getting out and breaking free of the insurance fraud underworld will take nothing short of a miracle.
I am not a big fiction reader so the book is going to have to grab me from the beginning in order for me to stay engaged. I enjoyed this book. It was very action driven. I felt like the book was constantly moving. It was on a subject that really could effect anyone in real life, insurance fraud so I felt like I could somewhat relate also.
The characters had a ways to draw you in and I would start cheer for them or wanting them to do something different or with the main Character, I would try to justify why the “bad guy” made the choices they made. It was very well written to engage the reader.
It has made me think a lot about how the insurance industry works as well as the ways people get taken advantage of. For it to be a fiction book, it brings reality into the world of getting caught up in a book. I loved how it brought a problem to life that is happening but we learned about it through a story line.
The book was well written and packed full of action the only thing that I really didn’t enjoy was the strong language but it didn’t hinder the story line for me.
