Sir Jack Fitzrowan, fourteenth baronet and electronics millionaire, died sailing off the Nantucket Sound. With his will comes a shocking legacy which leaves the bulk of his fortune, $300,000,000, to someone his family never knew existed - a secret love child, illegally sold at birth by a corrupt Donegal priest. Is the boy still alive? Is the maverick millionaire's true legacy one of heartbreak and revenge? Was his death really an accident? Detective Lieutenant Tom Hanrahan of the Boston Police Department begins to doubt it. Murray Smith's compelling writing, described as 'Terrific in a word' by the New York Times, has the answers.
'A gripping page-turner, full of surprises, which unfolds with Smith's usual, cracking pace. Brilliant.'
