If your end table is looking a bit flat and empty without a new book to read, and you are in the mood for a gritty, hard-boiled novel that just so happens to be insurance-related, consider Double Indemnity (1935), by James M. Cain. As Amazon. com explains:
"When smalltime insurance salesman Walter Huff meets seductive Phyllis Nirdlinger, the wife of one of his wealthy clients, it takes him only minutes to determine that she wants to get rid of her husband--and not much longer to decide to help her do it. Walter knows that accident insurance pays double indemnity on railroad mishaps, so he and Phyllis plot frantically to get Nirdlinger on--and off--a train without arousing the suspicions of the police, the insurance company, Nirdlinger's dishy daughter, her mysterious boyfriend, or Nirdlinger himself. This brief but complex novel is a perfect example of the ordinary-guy-gone-disastrously-wrong story that Cain always pulls off brilliantly. "
Later adapted into a film by the same name in 1944, it was engraved into the American film noir canon, and remains to this day an excellent example of war-time cinematic plot development and vigilant insurance agent work.
