Get Busy Dying (Roy Ballard Mysteries Book 2)

Ben Rehder

4.7 (154 reviews)
Everyone thinks Boz Gentry died in a fiery traffic accident, but Roy Ballard and Mia Madison aren t convinced. As legal videographers, it s their job to provide evidence of insurance fraud and the more they dig into the Gentry case, the more they realize this might be the most elaborate scheme they ve ever encountered. Of course, when millions of dollars are at stake, con men will take drastic steps to protect their scam including arson, assault, or even murder. Can Roy and Mia unravel the conspiracy before the criminals get desperate enough to kill?

Murderously funny.
Chicago Tribune

Another of Rehder s relentlessly twisted tales. Outrageous fun.
Kirkus Reviews

Wickedly funny.
Dallas Morning News

The odd cast of characters and bizarre plots and subplots make for a rollicking good read.
Houston Chronicle

Rehder has made the leap from writing skillful comic pleasantries to pulverizing satire.
Austin American-Statesman

Rehder writes with an assured hand and a knowing tip of the wide-brimmed cowboy hat to the ways and wiles of the characters that people his distinctly Texan landscape.
San Antonio Express-News

[An] increasingly popular (and increasingly enjoyable) series. With this novel, the Marlin series has completed the transition from light mystery to no-holds-barred madcap comedy crime fiction ( la Westlake or Hiaasen). Booklist

Rehder continues to improve with each book. [His] series will appeal to fans of Southwestern mysteries laced with a bit of humor.
Library Journal

This series about Blanco County, Texas, game warden John Marlin keeps getting odder and funnier But one thing s for sure: Rehder has jumped to a new level...just might grab a chunk of the outsize Hiaasen crowd.

Down-home humor that is both intriguing and entertaining.
Dallas Morning News

Rollicking good fun.
San Antonio Express-News

Rehder s clever storytelling skills, his expert comic timing and flair for characters have made this series shine. Rehder doesn t just write niche mysteries, he s proving to be one of the genre s rising talents with his twisted tales.
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The writing here is confident and vigorous; the tone is quintessentially Texan and relentlessly wry. There s sure to be a long career for this happy, wacky series.
Publishers Weekly

Ben Rehder writes about the Texas Hill Country with such insightful appreciation that he s come to own the territory, much the same way Carl Hiaasen owns South Florida.
