Nick Merchant is an heir hunter--a little-known species of private investigator who searches for a dead person's next of kin when no will exists, and collects a percentage of the estate. Gerald Jacobs is a reclusive millionaire, found dead in a creaky old house in upstate New York. His net worth: twenty-two million dollars. Nick and his beautiful partner, Alex Moreno, think they're about to score the payday of a lifetime.

Unfortunately, they've got some pretty stiff competition. A rival firm is doing its best to beat them to the punch. And someone else--someone who knows every dark secret in Gerald Jacobs's grave--will stop at nothing to see that no one ever breaks this case. Nick and Alex work against the clock, narrowly eluding their rivals, dodging bullets, and unearthing a history a lot of people would rather keep buried. Moving from San Francisco to New York City, from Geneva to Washington, D.C.--and dozens of points in between--they struggle to uncover the guilty secret behind a dead man's fortune.

From the Back Cover:

"The Heir Hunter is original and cool. Larsgaard's debut is a masterly bit of suspense writing."
--The Denver Post

"The Heir Hunter is a labyrinth: one way in, a hundred unexpected twists, and only one way out. A very cool and fast-paced novel. If you like your fiction a thrill-a-page, hunt no further than Chris Larsgaard."
--David L. Robbins, author of War of the Rats

"Chris Larsgaard has combined a wonderfully original premise with his natural gift for characterization to create a truly memorable debut. I'm looking forward to his next one."
--Kyle Mills, author of Rising Phoenix and Free Fall

"In The Heir Hunter, Chris Larsgaard has created that most unusual thing--a truly original, utterly compelling thriller. Once you've plunged into the murky and mysterious world of Nick Merchant, first-class heir hunter, you won't come up for air until you've reached the final pulse-pounding page. This is a book you do not want to miss."
--William Bernhardt, author of Silent Justice
