Summary

Even the dead like to keep their secrets....

When William Gove, a dying millionaire and patriarch of a vast estate in Essex, asks Daniel Connell to execute his will, Daniel has no idea what he's getting himself into. Rather than leave his fortune to his three children, Gove has chosen 10 names at random from the phone book.

When he dies, Daniel sets out to track down the recipients. But a chance remark by one of them - that perhaps this is God's way of compensating her for the disappearance of her daughter - gives him pause.

When another recipient also mentions a missing person, Daniel begins to suspect that there may be something darker at work. What he discovers is both shocking and dangerous - it sets him on a lethal trajectory with a powerful family who believe themselves to be above the law, no matter how dark and twisted their secrets may be....

Very enjoyable...

I didn’t think I’d had any time off when I was studying but I appear to have missed many lectures Daniel seems to have attended! Very distinct grey area between his black and white! But...still love Daniel, still love Gabe, still love Rupert Degas!
