A hot-bodied female and her sociopath lover steal millions from an insurance company by targeting policy limits claimants in a murder-for-profit scheme.

Insurance can be a real killer. Luther Sitasy, one-time Vietnam vet, wealthy eccentric, now manager of the policy limits section of Trans Patriot insurance, trips into a savage plot. Someone is calculating the cold blooded murder of certain high reserve plaintiffs, using the millions of freed-up reserves for their own high stakes gain.

Luther’s investigation forces him back to a time of guns, honor, and another, darker sense of morality as he hurtles towards a sociopathic killer and his sensual and sexy partner, while the body count steadily rises.

ASSUMPTION OF RISK is available from Amazon.
