A forty year old mystery all mixed up with family feuds, fraud and corruption this is the first of a trilogy. There is plenty to keep your interest hooked and the two main characters are original and engaging.

It is just a shame that the author died shortly after turning in the three manuscripts for this trilogy and we will not have any more from this interesting author.
