This is a great story about health policies and an insurance adjuster who investigates the people who submit claims. The story is not new, but the twists shown by Gail take a refreshing point of view. The tale is well presented and the writing is easy to follow. I would have to say it is pleasantly done, clean, and intriguing.

This book relates the story of Pepper Bibeau, a war veteran become insurance adjuster. She has seen first hand what war can do to young men’s lives and has dealt with her own war scars.

Dangerous Game by Keith Morris

We find in Dangerous Game a thrilling book about terrorists and the Olympic games that come to Utah for the second time. This story is well done, clean and has characters who are Mormons. I recommended it to all who enjoy thrillers, detectives and don’t mind a sprinkle of Mormonism here and there. It isn’t preachy at all, nor is it a conversion tool. What it is, though, is a great reading for all readers from pre-teens to adults.

It all starts when Peter is asked by the FBI to investigate a murder in rural Utah. This results in contingency with his job as a security officer for the LDS church. He not only meets the deceased man, but also the police woman who will become his partner in this bizarre case.

Why would anyone kill a God-fearing man and call the police to tell them where his body is? Just a few days later, Peter and his partner find that that there have been other cases like this one. All the bodies had been bitten before they were killed. Are they dealing with a serial killer, or some other type of villain who doesn’t care for human life?
