Title: A Testament to Murder
Author: Vivian Conroy
Release Date: February 18, 2019
A dying billionaire. Nine would-be heirs. But only one will take the prize…
At the lush Villa Calypso on the French Riviera, a dying billionaire launches a devious plan: at midnight each day he appoints a new heir to his vast fortune. If he dies within 24 hours, that person takes it all. If not, their chance is gone forever.
Yet these are no ordinary beneficiaries, these men who crossed him, women who deceived him, and distant relations intent on reclaiming the family fortune. All are determined to lend death a hand and outwit their rivals in pursuit of the prize.
As tensions mount with every passing second, retired Scotland Yard investigator Jasper must stay two steps ahead of every player if he hopes to prevent the billionaire’s devious game from becoming a testament to murder…
WHY I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT
I haven’t read anything by Vivian Conroy before, but the premise of this one is interesting. I love a locked room (or isolated island) mystery, so this one sounds right up my alley.
