In the wake of a series of flops, two-time Oscar-winning actress Teri Squire's career is in a nosedive. She needs to find a great screenplay to fuel her comeback, but no working screenwriter wants to commit a masterpiece to someone who is box office poison. No one, that is, except a despondent and unproduced writer who bequeaths his last script to Teri in his will then plunges off a cliff along the Big Sur coastline of California. In desperation, Teri accepts the bequest-and discovers the script is brilliant. After turning it over to her production team, and with the hype surrounding the circumstances of the writer's death, the movie is on target for a blockbuster opening weekend that promises to resurrect Teri's career-until a mysterious stranger shows up at her doorstep and casts doubt on what really happened that night at Big Sur. As her comeback descends into chaos, Teri finds herself as the prime suspect in a bizarre murder.

A must read! Will not disappoint! From the first to the last page, the novel keeps you enthralled with suspense...the edge of your seat...adrenaline rush...knots in your stomach...cannot put the book down until the last page!!! A fast paced, mind-blowing story full of twists and turns...UNABLE to anticipate what will transpire...A phenomenal book!!! The movie industry MUST make this action packed book into a movie!!! I enjoyed "Manifest Intent" and "Rules of Privilege"; however, the author has surpassed those suspense thrillers with the recent book, "The Bequest"! I cannot wait for the next book! -Deb
