Thanks, Karin. I've always liked Perry, too, and, having worked for an insurance company for 13 years, I love nitpicking through insurance-related books (CA Fire & Life, excellent depiction; Paretsky direly needs a fact checker).
    I have this book and will move it from a random place in the TBR stacks to the top of the heap.

Death Benefits (2001). It's kind of an update on The Wreckers, with a hint of Harvest Home. The "detectives" are a consultant hired by an insurance company to find the agent suspected of being behind a major fraud, her sort-of ex-boyfriend (an accountant) conscripted to help, and an expert in illegal computer searches. I don't believe they are series characters, but I can see the potential.
