A careful, methodical young data analyst for a California insurance company, John Walker knows when people will marry, at what age they will most likely have children, and when they will die. All signs point to a long successful career-until Max Stillman, a gruff security consultant, appears without warning at the office. It seems a colleague with whom Walker once had an affair has disappeared after paying a very large death benefit to an impostor. Stillman wants to find and convict her; Walker is convinced the woman is innocent. Now Walker teams up with Stillman on an urgent north-by-northeast race-relentlessly leading to a pay-off that just might shock the life out of him.

"The clever title and ironic tone of the narrative belie the seriously intriguing plot of this suspense story, which involves life insurance fraud. In a voice heavy with life experience, Michael Kramer embodies the character of special security consultant Max Stillman, who is hired by McClaren Life and Casualty to solve a problem in their Pasadena office. Kramer finds an earnest, reliable-sounding voice for John Walker, the data analyst Max commandeers to help him search for an employee who signed off on a $12-million death claim she knew was fraudulent. For reasons of his own, Walker dusn't believe she did it. Kramer delivers the dramatic denouement at a pace that matches the breathless events taking place in a small New Hampshire town. A surprising plot and luminous narration make a perfect combination. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
