Jeff Davis is definitely not a candidate for Employee of the Month. He is an Insurance Adjuster with a bad
attitude. Bored with his job he routinely does the barest minimum to get by. He also lies through his teeth
with creative excuses to his wife, boss and clients. Still, he is positively brilliant when it comes to extraditing
 himself from sticky situations. He is also unusually witty and generally sarcastic.

Gaylon Crittes is the stepson of the influential right-wing conservative Arkansas State Senator, Thaddeus 
Pinkley. Gaylon needs Jeff to approve a rental because his Lincoln Town Car was badly bashed in a fatal 
accident the previous night. Gaylon is a weird duck and a control freak.

Gaylon quickly becomes unhappy with Jeff's lackadaisical attitude when Jeff refuses to authorize
payment on the rental until he has inspected the damage to the Lincoln. In the meantime, the accident 
scene becomes a crime scene as some surprising evidence is discovered that could be related to a serial 
kidnapping case. As Jeff plods through his insurance investigation pressure builds, loyalties are tested, 
and four innocent lives hang in the balance.

Rarely does a story come along that is so strangely compelling. I was hooked right from the start as Jeff 
procrastinated, lied, grumbled and complained to himself about practically everything. Yet, I laughed and 
rapidly flipped the pages almost as if I was right there with him willing him to triumph - an invisible presence 
captivated by his irreverent, sarcastic humor. Pick up and read this book. Rick Baber knows how to tell a 
story that is thrilling, funny and both politically and religiously controversial. This one is a winner; I am 
fervently praying for a sequel.
