Buying Time by Pamela Samuels Young

Goldman House Publishing
Available 11/01/09

Waverly Sloan is a down-on-his-luck lawyer. But just when he’s about to hit rock bottom, he stumbles upon a business with the potential to solve all of his problems. In Waverly’s new line of work, he comes to the aid of people in desperate need of cash. But there’s a catch. His clients must be terminally ill and willing to sign over rights to their life insurance policies before they can collect a dime. Waverly then finds investors eager to advance them thousands of dollars — including a hefty broker’s fee for himself — in exchange for a significant return on their investment once the clients take their last breath. The stakes get higher when Waverly brokers the policy of the cancer-stricken wife of Lawrence Erickson, a high-powered lawyer who’s bucking to become the next U.S. Attorney General. When Waverly’s clients start dying sooner than they should, both Waverly and Erickson — who has some skeletons of his own to hide — are unwittingly drawn into a perilous web of greed, blackmail and murder.

  1. Hi All,

    Please don’t miss The Mo’Nique Show on Monday, April 19th on BET. You’ll be able to catch Chili of TLC and the R&B group Mint Condition. You will also see me promoting my newest legal thriller, Buying Time. I had a ball at the taping in Atlanta. Had my own dressing room and got a chance to sign the celebrity wall. It was hard coming back to reality! This will be my first major national exposure as an author of legal thrillers.

    Don’t worry about missing it. I’ll remind you again right before it airs!
