Jacob Warner, a successful claims lawyer, was burnt out. Not that he'd noticed. He'd not noticed, either, how distant he'd grown from his wife. And by the time she was killed in a tragic auto accident he was not noticing anything. That was ten years ago. In the decade since, Jake has been buried in a body shop, where he has tried to salve his psychic wounds by sanding, spraying, painting, buffing, waxing, restoring the smooth enamel surfaces to twisted metal. Still, the world baffles him, his soul aches, his life's a wreck. Then a surrealistic encounter with a dying sheriff not only engages him in a battle of wits against a ruthless insurance executive but also drags him back into the world of liabilities, coverage, claims, and legal loopholes. Snapped out of his torpor by rage, Jake seeks, with the aid of his remarkable friend Luella, to vanquish the executive who represents everything that he himself once was and never wanted to be.
