***Though the author provides the free book, I offer the opinion.***
Mary Louise Stuart tried to understand what the attorney told her, but it’s a blow to find out the grandparents thought dead had been very much alive, for most of your life, but are now dead—for real.
Why did she have to find out from a lawyer, when her father and mother were still very much alive? Why did her father lie? Did her mother know the truth?
Her fiancée, Bill, didn’t seem worried over much more than what her grandparents left her, until he saw it, while Mary wanted to know more about those she never knew about. The ransacked house greeted her questions with more questions.
Who would kill her grandparents and why?
A small address book, photos, and gold coins ignite a passion and sets Mary on a quest for the truth.
Since her father wouldn’t speak about it and her mother knew that her grandparents were alive but claims not much else, Mary is going to find out about them through those who did know them.
One by one, Mary Stuart finds a ragtag bunch of elders—some syndicate guys and one sweet lady—all who knew her grandparents. Maybe they will help Mary solve the mystery surrounding why they died.
But is Mary ready to know all about her grandparents or why their story ends in murder?
