A Rich Man’s Relatives (Volumes 1-3) by Robert Cleland

A Rich Man’s Relatives by Robert Cleland, author of “Inchbracken.”

In Three Volumes; Volumes 1, 2 and 3

Copyright 1885.

What can I say, after reading this book the only thing that comes to mind is the saying "what a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive." This story, written in three volumes (this e-book contains all three volumes) covers part of the adult life a Ralph Herkimer and his family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances. It includes murder, kidnapping, business fraud and a whole lot more--a good read as you try and figure out where the story is going and how it is all going to tie together.
