What started out to be a simple trust disbursement for attorney, Ian Wells, turns out to be anything but simple. In fact it is proving to be deadly. He knew something was off when he was offered a fee of two hundred thousand dollars for a week’s work, but with his mother’s medical bills mounting from Alzheimers and struggling to take his law practice in a different direction, he reluctantly took the job only to be dragged into a crime from the prohibition era that was never solved, along with family secrets that turned his world upside down.
Hang on to your seat! This mystery has so many twists and turns it will certainly keep you sitting on the edge. Ian asked his friend, Brook at the US Attorney’s Office for help on a background investigation of his clients. When his law firm, Wells and Hoy came up in the background check, Ian’s childhood dreams came more often. He didn’t understand them, but knew somehow his family was deeply connected to that long-ago unsolved crime.
This book is not only filled with mystery and intrigue, but also with Ian’s journey of struggling with right and wrong and finally settling on righting a wrong.
Mr. Johnson has woven a fantastic mystery without explicit language. In my opinion it is an exceptionally well-written book that I would highly recommend. I am looking forward to reading more of Mr. Johnson’s work.
