Read this tale of death and wealth from New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille as a crime writer on the brink makes a drastic decision, pitting him against his agent and the law as he finds out that writing crime is easier than committing it.

A digital short story from New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille that also includes a preview from his upcoming novel, The Panther

Bestselling author Jack Henry is suddenly on the brink of bankruptcy. With bills mounting and the IRS calling, he realizes that he has a major problem on his hands. But who is to blame for his declining fortunes? Certainly not Jack himself. The fault, he determines, lies with his agent, Stan Wycoff – who takes 15% of everything Jack makes for doing absolutely nothing.

Jack needs a way out of his dire financial predicament – and fast. And then he remembers that both he and his agent have substantial life insurance policies on one another. If Stan were to die unexpectedly, Jack would cash in…

But can a famous crime writer commit the perfect crime?

"DeMille (The Lion) has written the ideal appetizer before the main course of The Panther arrives in October. Elements from the John Corey series come into play, and the story itself is short but tight. Just when the story seems too predictable, DeMille throws in another twist. Highly recommended for ereaders everywhere."—Library Journal
