Former law school dean, Glen Weissenberger, nationally renowned expert in the plot twists of legal courtroom evidence, brings a “too real to be true” romantic, heart-pounding mystery to life in his cleverly penned, critically acclaimed first novel, in this 2nd, enlarged edition!
Garth Matthews, dean of Chicago’s newest law school, doesn’t see it coming.
And if brilliant Matthews can’t see it coming, nobody can.
So it’s not looking good.
Naturally, Matthews is thrilled to receive a multimillion-dollar award for his educational leadership. But before he knows it, he becomes entangled with the shrewd, gin-guzzling, hysterically funny matriarch of the bestowing European charity—and the intrigue doesn’t end there. Clues are mounting that the foundation is really a cover for international art theft, and that Matthews is being set up as its prime suspect.
Then—as if this weren’t complicated enough–Matthews finds himself utterly captivated by Julia, the matriarch's beautiful, enigmatic granddaughter.
Together, Matthews and Julia share quiet, tucked-away restaurants in New York City, fine wines, and warm, wide-ranging intellectual conversation. For the first time since his wife’s death, Matthews feels solace and a growing, tender love in his relationship with Julia.
That is, when he isn’t trying to unravel the plot spinning around the foundation, with his own neck on the line.
And where does Julia fit in? Could she be his true love–indeed, his soul mate? Or is she part of the web luring him in with her wiles–possibly even the family’s mastermind?
Race through Matthews' ten life-changing days that swirl with false identities, threats of criminal embezzlement, and a building–possibly dangerous–passion, days that will change his life forever!
