Then read this book and wait for the next two. Conduct in Question takes you into the world of estate planning, undue influence and financial exploitation. I have a professional interest in these subjects but I would have loved the book even if I did not. The characters are developed from the first page to the last. You have a lawyer with a heart, a serial killer and a very dysfunctional family. The characters moved in and out of the story and the themes were woven expertly. You can tell the author is no stranger to the subject matter. You will read this book in a few days and wonder when the next two are coming out!

CONDUCT IN QUESTION is an intricately woven web of greed, power and insanity. I was caught up from page one. Harry¿s character develops through the novel, and you can¿t help but cheer him on. The other characters are finely detailed, as is the plot. Harry¿s life has always been on the conservative side, he has a routine job in a small firm, and he wonders if things will ever change. Then his partner drops dead, his wife seems to be gone more and more, and the death of a long-time client leads to secrets that shatter Harry¿s once calm existence. Harry is caught up in corporate greed, money laundering, fraud, murder, and some newly awakened feelings of desire for the beautiful Natasha. Can he ever again find the calm existence that he once despised? This is the first in a trilogy by author Mary E Martin, and I can¿t wait for the second installment!
