"Accidental Felon" is a good read that also instructs. Author Gloria Wolk's fictional account of Carly Daniels, an innocent clerical worker who is targeted alongside the principals at her insurance company in a Department of Justice investigation, is a sympathetic and realistic character.

I became internationally known when I began to expose fraud in the viatical and life settlements industry, before any government agency was aware of these new types of fraud.

The interest in this industry stems from volunteering at an AIDS community organization, where clients asked about selling their life insurance. After I thoroughly researched the new industry that purchased policies from termi
