When a Palm Beach widow dies, the dispute over her will turns deadly in this &“breathlessly paced legal thriller&” from a New York Times–bestselling author (Publishers Weekly). When wealthy Palm Beach dowager Althea Tillett dies under suspicious circumstances, it sparks… a battle between those in line for an inheritance—including Gail Connor&’s old law school classmate and former lover Patrick Norris. He thinks someone has tampered with his aunt&’s will—preventing him from receiving millions he hoped to use for an urban renewal project. Although discouraged from getting involved by her own law firm and her lover, Cuban-American attorney Anthony Quintana, Gail agrees to look into Althea&’s rapacious relatives. But she soon finds herself in the middle of a family feud that&’s about much more than money. It&’s about secrets, lies, forgery . . . and murder. Written by a former prosecutor, this &“provocative, breathless&” national bestseller &“will surprise you&” (The Plain Dealer).
