Untangling the Black Web by T.F. Jacobs tells the story of David Higgins who sets out on a mission to bring down the corrupt insurance health care system. After the death of his wife, Lexi, through cancer, David is presented with a bill for tens of thousands of dollars after discovering that the majority of her treatment was not covered by insurance. The irony is that he works for the insurance company, American True Care, and was responsible for putting many of the exclusions into the policies taken out by the majority of American citizens. He vows to expose the corruption, but finds himself embroiled in a system governed by power and money. He decides to go undercover, but begins to wonder who the real bad guys are and whether he is inadvertently fighting for the wrong side.

T.F. Jacobs has woven an intricate and thrilling story that keeps the reader turning pages frantically until the end is reached. The characters are believable and have the reader brimming with hatred and disgust and questioning the whole system of healthcare, insurance, and even government itself. An amazing pace to the writing makes this an exciting and compelling read with an immensely satisfying ending. The book itself is perfectly edited with a clear story arc that doesn’t confuse. A truly riveting piece of work - this author is definitely one to watch and is to be applauded on an excellent book. Highly recommended. Well done to a star author in the making.
