Troy Phelan is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die. His potential heirs, to no one's surprise - especially Troy's - are circling like vultures. But Troy shocks them all when he leaves his fortune to an estranged, illegitimate daughter.

I have read or listened to every Grisham novel and I think this is one of his best.
The way it opened did not give a hint of where it was going. I loved it.

Having read almost all of Martha Grimes Richard Jury stories, it is a real pleasure listening to them again and reminiscing about the plots. The old gang from Long Pid does not disapoint.
