I really enjoyed this thriller. The opening chapter is written by the offender and it chills you. Then we next are reunited, if you read the first book, with our Department of Insurance Special Agents, Julia Jackson and Mark Vincent as they go after a possible 'death benefits scam.'
The location is in Georgia and it shows us the hunting and blue-collar worker mentalities. Not to put them in a group but to show us a different perspective towards working and daily life.
Julia, coming off sick leave, must also deal with her personal demons that are linked to her Sister's rape and family dysfunction. Mark opens up his life a bit for our understanding also.
This book had twists and turns and had me exclaiming out loud several times. I was invested in the story line and read this book quickly.
I look forward to the next volume in this credible series.
Otherwise the plot stands alone and was a good pace, and I am really enjoying how the author brings in the “bad guys” view. You don’t know WHO he is in identification but you are still getting to know what is driving him.
I thought the plot was well developed; it certainly held my interest throughout the book and better yet, the "voice" of the killer kept me guessing.
While there is murder and there is death, even a little gore, this is not a heavy, dark book that will haunt your dreams. It is fast paced with well drawn, well developed characters who leave you wanting to know a little more about them. I am eagerly anticipating the next book and only wish the author could write as fast I can read.
This book stands on its own, but I would suggest new readers start with Absolute Liability in order to fully enjoy Death Benefits.
I'd been looking forward to the second book of her Southern Fraud series since the reading of the first one. It does not disappoint, although it does not exceed my expectations. We have the same characters we met in the first and learn a bit more about each but not much more than a bit. I assume that's because this is only the second in what I believe will be a 7-book series and the personal issues will be advanced little by little. Each book does have its mystery to solve and, in this case, it's suspected insurance fraud and murder. There's an unhinged person who has an unhealthy obsession with dead bodies whose inner thoughts we are privy to throughout the book without his/her identity being revealed until the final third of the book. You will probably guess who but there's enough excitement and danger to our heroine to make the story interesting.
The personal issues of the protagonist, Julia Jackson, an ex-police detective who now works as a fraud investigator for the Department of Insurance in Georgia, remain the same. Worry about her alcoholic sister who was raped 17 years earlier has Julia obsessed with finding the rapist, thinking that some kind of closure may help her sister's mental and emotional state. Her friend and ex-lover Tripp Carver, a Mercer policeman, is still around to give emotional and professional support. Fellow investigator Mark Vincent, whom she met and worked with in the previous mystery, has transferred to Mercer and is now working as her partner. (Mark, BTW, is a possible love interest but things are going very slowly in that sense. We have understated, latent sexual attraction that is developing realistically and in such a way as to keep me reading all the books to see how the romance will grow.)
Becton has me hooked on the series. Book 3 is scheduled to be out this year and I hope it will be fairly soon.
I understand there are 6 books in this series- I'm ready to read #3.
