Expertly told, without a false note.
When Larissa’s father dies, Eric, the family’s lawyer and her mother’s and father’s closest friend, naturally handles his will.
The two families are inextricably entwined. Eric and his wife have been part of their family for as long as Larissa can remember, often taking joint summer holidays in a timber cottage by the sea.
After Larissa’s brother, George, raises questions about the will, about the sums of money left, certain discrepancies, the ties which had bound them all begin to fray. Reluctant to even think of challenging Eric, Larissa nonetheless comes to see that George has a point. There was less money than there should have been. Where has it gone?
