The Bequest: A Nicole Graves Mystery (Nicole Graves Mysteries) (Paperback)
Out of Stock; Usually Arrives in 2-5 Days
Boyarsky's weightless complications expertly combine menace with bling, making the heroine's adventures both nightmarish and dreamy. –Kirkus Reviews
Nicole Graves, still reeling from her London kidnapping in The Swap, is struggling to balance work at L.A.’s most prestigious law firm and a long-distance romance with her English lover. Things go sideways when she tracks down a missing colleague. The murder of the firm’s in-house investigator, his mysterious wealth, and his inexplicable bequest make Nicole a target for the police, the paparazzi, and the killer. When Nicole’s life takes an unexpected turn, she uncovers evil and corruption among the city’s most powerful people. The fast-paced mystery unravels against the backdrop of L.A. with its peculiar mix of balmy weather, the celebrity-crazed media, and a corrupt power structure hidden by the veneer of glamour and wealth.
