This story is less than a "who done it" and more of "why did he do it" and "where did he get it." Why would an 83-year-old Catholic bookkeeper leave a fortune to a Jewish Synagogue? Where did he get the millions he left? Where is his family? This book shows that the drama of a civil lawsuit is every bit as dramatic as any criminal trial, and that people will fight for money every bit as hard as they will fight for freedom or for their lives.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat. Very good. Kept me turning the pages. Very happy with the ending.

Another all-time favorite. Too bad he hasn't written more than two books.

A good first novel by a corporate executive and lawyer. The plot turns on the probate of the will of an 83-year-old, modest-living, Catholic (this is a relevant fact in the story) bookkeeper who wills a substantial fortune to a Synagogue. The usual characters come out of the woodwork to claim the estate, including his employer, where theft is suspected. The lawyer who wrote the will finds himself in the midst of a struggle to defend the will and to determine the origin of the money. A few good plot twists keep things interesting. Characters are well-developed and the flow is good. An excellent read!

This is an excellent book-engrossing without being Gross. No horrific murder just a good mystery. Well written-no doldrums that you have to get throught to get to the good stuff. I hope this author writes more.
