Stealing Huckleberry is a hilarious glimpse into a night of the life of Sarah Jones, insurance investigator for Red Rock Insurance company. Her most recent assignment is to recover a stolen, signed first edition copy of “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” Her methods are extreme, brash and sometimes hilarious but effective.
Having spent several years currently in an insurance career and working at times with our Special Investigations group, I must say this is some extreme investigating. Sarah’s methods are sometimes illegal but ingenious. I am aware that there are insurance investigators out there to investigate things such as disability claims, but this short little gem gets me wondering just how many other claims are actively pursued and vetted. If you have about 30 minutes to spare, Stealing Huckleberry is a quick entertaining read that will have you laughing out loud. While this is a bit of a departure from Lucian’s previous novels, it is still well worth the read. I would have loved this to have been a bit longer, maybe there will be a full-length novel in the future? I can only imagine the mayhem that would ensue with a bigger case.
