On his first big case as a newly-minted private investigator, Carlos “Chuck” McCrary must untangle a web of fraud, arson, adultery and murder before he becomes its next victim.
Ike Simonetti and his model-slim wife, Lorraine, tell Chuck Ike’s stepmother is trying to steal $400 million from Ike’s father’s estate. But is Ike Simonetti the only surviving heir of oilman Sam Simonetti? Or is there another contender for the fortune—a baby girl born to the dead billionaire’s hot young trophy wife six months after Sam’s death? The investigation takes Chuck from the sun-splashed beaches of South Florida to the burned-out Cleveland home of two dead daughters.
When mob hitmen ambush Chuck, the case becomes a matter of life and death. To save his own life and that of the supposed infant heiress, Chuck must discover if one of the billionaire’s surviving family members is the real puppet master behind the murders.
