Set near Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota just after the New Year, "e;In the Company of Wolves"e; is a Thriller by James Michael Larranaga that intermingles the scent of deception and deceit, and the redolence of victory as right triumphs over wrong and the wolves are kept at bay. Quin Lighthorn is a bounty hunter who gets a job as an Intern at Safe Haven LLC after their current intern disappears with her boyfriend. At Safe Haven they don't sell life insurance policies, they buy them. Offering policy holders with terminal illnesses a large portion of the payout on their death benefits to use as they see fit before they die, then splitting the remaining money with anonymous investors is big business to the death brokers. The problem is--too many clients are dying ahead of the projections and someone has noticed. When Quin meets Rebecca Baron, an artist with an inoperable brain tumor and a $10 million life insurance policy, he is determined to protect her from the wolves, as he has dubbed the sales force at Safe Haven LLC and their alpha, Big Ben Moretti. Rebecca is intrigued with Quin and his Native American heritage, but can she trust him when she learns Quin is manic-depressive and prone to fits of violent behavior and hallucinations?
