T.F. Jacobs



When David’s wife dies at the hands of a corrupt medical system, David is out for justice. With his skills as a lawyer and his position inside the biggest health insurance company in America—American True Care—he plans to bring down the system, from the inside.


David begins to work his way up the company while recruiting a clandestine team to build a covert case against American True Care. But this is a dangerous game and the players have ties to the highest levels of government. Propped up by lobbyists, senators, congressmen, and even the White House, American True Care will do whatever it takes to keep hold of its power.


As the web of deception and danger tightens around David and his team, they begin to realize that to win they have to risk it all—even their lives.

This novel really was one in a million for me. THIS is what a thriller is all about...Through strong characterization, and the first person present tense style, it felt more like I was getting a glimpse into the lives of real people that had been translated to the page...As an artist as well as an author, I am so pleased to be able to tell you that Jacobs had a movie running in my head the entire time....Fantastic work, truly fantastic.

Q and A on Untangling the Black Web


Q: Which actor would you like to see playing the lead character in this book?

A: This role was made for Jake Gyllenhaal. I mean I won’t stop Ryan Gosling from auditioning, but I feel this one is better suited for Jake. Jake, if you’re reading this, let’s make it happen.


 Q: Which writers inspire you?

 A: I like writers who know how to keep you turning the pages. Joseph Finder is a true master of suspense, and Blake Crouch has the art of writing thrillers down to a tee. Another personal inspiration is the late Stieg Larsson of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series.


Q: What is the inspiration for this story?

A: Whether it be loopholes in contracts or coverage, unregulated costs, or just rising costs of premiums, people are upset and don’t trust the American healthcare industry. Being such a hot-button issue, this was a story I really wanted to read. The problem was that no one had written it yet.
