Summary

After his divorce, Hunt Jackson decides to start over in Tucson, where an old buddy fixes him up with his wife's friend, Beth. The attraction is immediate, and they're married a few months later. But Hunt's happiness is marred by his bizarre encounter with an insurance agent whose insistence that Hunt increase his coverage sounds, incredibly, like a threat. The agent - tall, gaunt, oddly dressed in an old-fashioned suit and fedora - is himself a menacing figure. And it soon becomes clear that whoever turns down his "offer" suffers catastrophic consequences: property destruction, fire, tornadoes - in tornado-free Arizona! What is going on? Hunt and Beth are determined to find out - never suspecting that the company's policy for life insurance will turn out to be more terrifying than death....

standard Bentley little fare, unsatisfying ending,

ending revealed very little information, characters seemed to just get random information from nowhere to move the plot along. still has the Bentley little charm of bizarre and horrifying consequences for seemingly mundane actions.

Struggled to finish

The Policy was too much like The Academy. It became boring after awhile but I had to listen until the end. There were a few moments of "OMG" but for the most part the book moved along like molasses.

Should be Categorized as a Comedy

I struggled to finish. I don't know how this is listed in the horror genre. NOTHING scarey. Plot was ridiculous. Save your credit!!

Not my fave

It’s was ok.
Felt clunky. I live some of the others and I think I have most at this point…
Didn’t hate - but definitely not in love.
