Publisher's Summary

It is Christmastime in New York and insurance investigator Dora Conti is sent from Connecticut to investigate the mugging and death of retired jeweler Lewis Starret. He was insured for three million dollars but the muggers didn't take his wallet. Very quickly, each family member becomes a suspect and Dora begins to feel the pull of the Starrets' world of greed and temptation.

Daytime soap opera - I really couldn't finish...

I usually love any book from Lawrence Sanders, but this one had a boring plot, a bit too obvious and the narration was slow and it felt like it was dragging. I am afraid I can't recommend this book.
