When a self-made Texas tycoon is murdered, the obvious suspects are any of his three daughters and their husbands; kids who are suing their own father for access to their "rightful inheritance"—the division of a billion dollars.

Gil Yates (aka Malvin Stark), the dual-personality PI who secretly specializes in the mega-rich, is hired by the stunning widow to find the killer.

The billionaire’s will stipulates in the event of foul play the estate is not to be divided until the crime is solved. The widow thinks the murderer is one of the kids. The kids think it is their widowed stepmother, their father’s third wife.

Spoiled rich kids greedy enough to kill? A pampered young wife trying to get even? Switches and surprises abound in this, the exciting sixth installment of the Gil Yates series.

About the Author:

Alistair Boyle is the author of the critically acclaimed Gil Yates Private Investigator Novels, Ship Shapely (1999), Bluebeard’s Last Stand (1998), The Unlucky Seven (1997) The Con (1996), and The Missing Link (1995). He currently lives in suburban Los Angeles.

From Booklist:

Gil Yates (the alias of the nerdy, unsuccessful real estate agent Malvin Stark) has another mystery to solve, this time at the behest of Pamela, Orville Sampson's lovely widow and stepmother to Orville's three grown daughters. Pamela has made a career out of marrying well, but she insists that she loved her husband and blames her daughters' greedy husbands for her beloved's death. But death does not cause any wealth to pass to Orville's heirs, for he added a provision that should he be murdered, the case must be solved before the estate is divided. Boyle's clever storytelling and deft writing are a treat once again in this sixth installment of the Yates series. When you're not trying to solve the mystery, you're laughing out loud at the foibles of a man who calls his wife Tyranny Rex ("or Tyranny Wrecks, if you aren't too careful about spelling") and his father-in-law-cum-boss Daddypimple or Daddydandruff. For lighthearted, witty whodunits, it doesn't get much better than this. Mary Frances Wilkens
