Publisher's Summary

When New England's premier powerbroker dies, his 28-year-old son, Jason, is surprised to find he is the sole heir. At first, Jason angrily rejects this billion-dollar bequest. But he's gradually seduced by the very power and prestige he despises. When he finally starts to right past wrongs, however, a series of murders sends him fleeing for his life.

Debut author Paul Robertson delivers a critically acclaimed novel that thrusts an idealistic young man into the swirling vortex of a corrupt empire.

Critic Reviews

"A Gresham-like tale of intrigue and murder....[A] suspenseful first novel with a lot of humor and well-drawn minor characters." (Booklist)
