Dyson keeps it light and smart for much of the book, but has no problem turning tough when the game is almost done and blood is spilled.”
Publishers Weekly STARRED Review

A bankrupt lawyer and a greedy insurance adjuster concoct a simple personal injury scam that goes violently wrong. It’s a wild tale that’s equal parts Elmore Leonard, John Grisham and Carl Hiaasen at their very best.
