A Fatal Inheritance

by Rachel Rhys

A Fatal Inheritance Synopsis

'A Fatal Inheritance is GLORIOUS! Hugely enjoyable escapism, featuring The South of France, film stars, gorgeous villas, lavender-scented air, ex-Nazis, family secrets and more besides! I enjoyed it ENORMOUSLY.' MARIAN KEYES London 1948: Eve Forrester is trapped in a loveless marriage, in a gloomy house, in a grey suburb. Out of the blue, she receives a solicitor's letter. A wealthy stranger has left her a mystery inheritance but in order to find out more, she must travel to the glittering French Riviera. Eve discovers her legacy is an enchanting villa overlooking the Mediterranean sea and suddenly, life could not be more glamorous. Alone in paradise, Eve must unlock the story behind her surprise bequest - before events turn deadly... Reminiscent of a Golden Age mystery, A Fatal Inheritance is an intoxicating story of dysfunctional families and long-hidden secrets, set against the razzle-dazzle and decadence of the French Riviera. 'With a dash of Agatha Christie and a nod to Zelda Fitzgerald, Rachel Rhys' historical mystery is simply gorgeous. . .will have you yearning to sip a gin fizz while watching the sun sink into the Mediterranean' KATE RIORDAN 'A transporting golden-age infused mystery caper' Sunday Times 'An exquisite and shimmering read. I completely lost myself in Rhys's lovingly evoked 1940s French Riviera and was gripped by the slow-burn mystery. An essential summer read!' LISA JEWELL 'Mixes glamour with tantalising intrigue - and a dark hint of dread' Daily Mail

About Rachel Rhys

Rachel Rhys is the pseudonym of psychological thriller writer Tammy Cohen. Her debut, Dangerous Crossing, was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick and was followed by Fatal Inheritance and Island of Secrets. Rachel's historical fiction focuses on exotic locations and dark mysteries but her protagonists travel emotionally as well as geographically, pushing to expand the limited horizons available to women of their era and, in the process, discovering who they really are. She lives in North London, with her three (allegedly) grown up children and her neurotic rescue dog. Visit www.tammycohen.co.uk to find out more, or ...
