Murry Phaniff is a 46-year-old insurance adjuster living in the small town of Ipswich just north of Boston. After a happy marriage of ten years, Murry’s wife Eleanor succumbed to a brain tumor. That was eight years ago and ever since Murry has engaged in the practice of not only adjusting people’s insurance needs, but also their lives when necessary.

For example, when an elderly couple required his services after a tree fell on their garage, he discovered that they were being systematically targeted by a scam artist who preyed on the elderly to make bogus investments in gold futures. Murry made arrangements to entrap the confidence man with the help of the local Sheriff and through their combined efforts, the heartless criminal landed in prison where he was murdered by his fellow inmates who frown on the practice of taking advantage of the elderly.

On a trip to Las Vegas to attend a biannual National Association of Independent Insurance Adjusters Conference at the Flamingo Casino, Murry’s extracurricular adjusting gets him involved with a beautiful woman and a double homicide for which he is the prime suspect.
Murry must flee from the police and with the help of his brilliant young assistant they must find the killer before becoming the next victims. The hunt takes them to the San Francisco Bay area where a mysterious stranger intervenes to save their lives.

The Adjuster  
Sydney Covington is an anthropology student who finds herself running for her life when she innocently brings an ancient human bone fragment with her to grad school in New Mexico. She and her photographer boyfriend Emmet Williams' best hope for surviving a triangle of death and destruction is a semi-inept FBI agent. Bone of Contention is a mystery that unfolds in 66,000-words.

The relic, an eight inch humerus jaggedly broken at the elbow, had been given to Sydney's father by Professor Johnson, an archeologist friend who directed an ill fated dig in Canyon de Chelly in 1966 where the bone was unearthed. The trouble begins when the beautiful Italian banker Alba Frisetti’s operative and part-time antique dealer, Jesús Morales, discovers that the jeweler a few doors down from his Santa Fe shop engraved some almost imperceptible numbers on a bone fragment thirty years earlier. Although the story touches on the legitimacy of contemporary Native American's claim to be the original Americans, the core of the tale revolves around black-market trafficking of ancient human skeletons.
FBI Special Agent Charles Wilson does his best to keep up with what's going on and at the same time shield Sydney and Emmet from those who would stop at nothing to get their hands on the bone fragment. Greed, pride, fear, and the desire for justice propel Bone of Contention toward its gory conclusion.
