The book was a well written first book, smooth reading.
What if your boss secretly took out insurance on your life—then tried to kill you?
A fiery crash consumes three cars and the lives of those inside. The police blame reckless driving, but investigator Alex Fogarty suspects a celebrated CEO staged the accident and murdered his own employees for insurance money.
As the body count starts rising, and with help from the CEO’s jilted wife, Alex pursues the case from L.A.’s seamy underside to the mansions of Bel Air. If he can keep ahead of the CEO’s chilling enforcer, Alex may just discover the dark truth.

David did not finish this book.
He said it did not keep his interest that it was boring.
Mosby Tomlinson was paranoid long before he even set foot on the Chimera. His dishonesty earned him a spot as the Brig Overseer aboard a starship he never should have been on in the first place, due to his criminal past. He soon finds that trouble follows him around as the crew devolves into madness following an accident that caused two-thirds of the crew-mates to be awoken from suspended animation. They have seven years remaining before they reach Earth… How long can he last before chaos reigns supreme and the crew discovers that he is not at all who he seems to be? He has an ally in the extremely intelligent figure of Eva K. Arvid, but can she overcome her own demons to engineer a survival for herself and Mosby?
A snake slithers its way out of Mosby’s troubled nightmares and into his waking thoughts and visions. A murderous captain, one of three, is hell-bent on justice and entertainment in a bizarre melding of the two. A wannabe detective will not stop snooping until he sees those that he dislikes dragged before the makeshift court and severely punished, no matter how illogical his hatred seems to be. A doctor turns crew members into addicts and lovesick fiends willing to trade their liberties and possessions for a moment of her time. The most withdrawn captain of all is up to something sinister far away from the rest of the crew, but it could be the answer to all of their problems… A masked vigilante that some believe to be a ghost, or otherwise supernatural being, doles real justice throughout the ship, instilling hope in some and fear in others. The final captain fights against her own mind as the hopeful remnants of the crew believe that she could be their only hope for survival and sanity. All of this and much more can be found aboard the Chimera in the wake of Starship Delirium.
