Waverly Sloan is a down-on-his-luck lawyer. But just when he's about to hit rock bottom, he stumbles upon a business with the potential to solve all of his problems.

In Waverly's new line of work, he comes to the aid of people in desperate need of cash. But there's a catch. His clients must be terminally ill and willing to sign over rights to their life insurance policies before they can collect a dime. Waverly then finds investors eager to advance them thousands of dollars - including a hefty broker's fee for himself - in exchange for a significant return on their investment once the clients take their last breath.

The stakes get higher when Waverly brokers the policy of the cancer-stricken wife of Lawrence Erickson, a high-powered lawyer who's bucking to become the next U.S. Attorney General. When Waverly's clients start dying sooner than they should, both Waverly and Erickson - who has some skeletons of his own to hide - are unwittingly drawn into a perilous web of greed, blackmail, and murder.

    " Excellent read!!! My heart was pounding and I couldn't seem to put it down. I never thought of myself as a murder mystery thriller reader, but I'm looking forward to reading Young's other books!!! Although some of the language was distrubing, its diction made the plot real--simply captivating. "

    " I just finished this book tonight, and my thoughts are was that it was a good read. But, I still think that Murder on the Down Low was a better book in my opinion. With Buying Time, the whole Viatical Insurance business went over my head somewhat, I tried my hardest to understand it. The mystery building within the story was interesting, it was amazing to read about the things people would do to inquire more money even if that meant murdering people. But I really enjoyed the characters of Angela and Dre, if the author were to make a sequel I would hope that she would pair these two together again. Dre was a flawed character throughout the book, Angela was an achiever, career-oriented person who's future was already set. However upon meeting and dating Dre, I liked how her elevated status was brought down because she got caught up. I liked reading about how her flaws were being fleshed out. Which is a weird description and nothing I like seeing in the real world, but since its literature its okay. And as far as Dre is concerned, oh yes, I need a Dre in my life sans his checkered past, but I liked Dre because he was street-smart despite his bad choices, he knew what he was doing was wrong, but for him it was never meant to be permanent. He did it with the goal of stopping after he reached enough for him to live off of. I appreciated as a woman how protective he was of Angela even if he wasn't upfront about his past with her in the beginning, she had some skeletons in her past, and alot of things that kept her hindered including a maniacal fiance'. But Dre was that stand up kind of guy, and not to mention that his analytical skills were off the hook, I loved how he could break things down to its simplest forms. I would love for the author to utilize Dre's street smarts into a detective career if she makes a sequel. Speaking of the author I got to meet Pamela Samuels Young last month on a book retreat in Savannah, GA and she auto-graphed my book. She's a nice person. "

    " This is a quick moving, easy read. Contains a truly unique premise for a plot I haven't read before, but otherwise, the plot development is fairly predictable. Themes include domestic violence, insurance fraud, and lawyers. No overt sex, but some domestic brutality. "

    " Now I already told you to read Murder On The Down Low. Do I have to remind you that this Sistah can really write? Well, what are you waiting for? I read this one in 48 hours. A legal thriller that will grab you and keep you from page one all the way to the bitter end. "

    " Buying Time is a thriller with wonderfully human characters, tight editing, and a thrilling plot that makes it impossible to put down. For anyone sick of subpar thrillers with wooden characters, Buying Time will remind you why you like the genre. "
