The Legacy Synopsis

What has happened to Ingrid? Beautiful Ingrid inherits a fortune. She leaves Australia and her friends Julia, and Ralph, who loves her, to marry the cold and intellectual Gil Grey and set up home with him and his daughter amid the New York art world. At 9 a.m. on September 11, 2001, Ingrid has an appointment with her financial advisor downtown. And is never seen again. A year later Ralph, heartbroken and sick, sends Julia to New York to try and piece together Ingrid's life away from them. Nothing could prepare Julia for what she discovers. A suspenseful mystery without a wasted word, The Legacy announces the arrival of a major new talent.
