This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Human greed keeps Nathan Parker employed investigating fraud. And greed has drawn him back to his native Ohio to settle a seemingly simple life insurance claim involving the death of a billionaire in the prosperous town of Woodview. But he soon learns there is nothing simple about this case.
Saddled with an incompetent partner and a boss who wants to be rid of him, he wades through a maze of uncooperative and shadowy witnesses. Chasing down leads that extend from the lowest rank of society to the highest echelon, Nathan finds that his investigation simply reveals more levels of complicity.
The number of people he can trust steadily declines. Further confounding the situation, an anonymous tipster haunts him with a clue that doesn’t seem to help in the least. Keeping Nathan firmly grounded is a budding relationship with a blond-haired woman. Yet even she has troubles of her own, dragging him into confrontation with a man who has a history of violence.
His investigation reveals a complex conspiracy that goes much deeper than insurance fraud. After peeling back its last layer, Nathan is sickened by the foul rot underlying the quaint community. Revealing his findings leads to a chaotic climax that provides plot twists to the very last chapter.
