Superb! Buying Time is definitely a fast pace read and it's a page turner. I was fully absorbed in the story even though at first I thought lots of it kind of cliff hanging and left you wondering but turn out it makes sense in the end. It has two sides of stories which I keep asking myself; what's the link? One is planning on murder while another is guilty but both of them are quite victims of themselves by being framed. The characters are quite unexceptionable and disagreeable from the start. However, that conflict between characters towards the end or half through of it starts to link and it related to each other. I also realize that each main characters have personal issues and quite disturbing; drug dealers, a mental federal judge, materialistic wife, pressured husband, pushy in-laws, a pervert US Attorney General candidate, desperate dying people and the list could go on. But this really works in this novel. It is exciting, thrill and realistic. The best thing that I can find in the author is that, there's no hero. Each character has their sides of very interesting story of their own and for me, it's something cool when the story is not only or just about a person. It's about every person in the book.

All in all, the book is excellently well-written, strong plot line and have solid characters. Other than that, it is well-researched, and a lot of information on viatical policy and prior reading the book, I think this viatical has a lot of ethical issues. While I'm not familiar with the viatical policies, reading this book really broaden my mind on new perspective and learn something new. I really recommend this book to your TBR list or read it very soon if you have the same interest as mine. No regret assured.
