Description

Wealth. Fame.
Power. Murder.

Jason Boyer Just Got an Inheritance to Die For

The fortune wasn't supposed to befall him.

Jason Boyer had known all along his father's business empire would pass to different hands. Which suited him just fine. The money was crooked and the power corrupt. But when an accident claims the old man's life, everyone is stunned by the unveiling of the will.

With the passing of the Boyer crown, power-hungry politicians and shady business partners all try to force Boyer's hand. Fighting the temptation of influence and riches, he simply wants to be a better man than his father--but attempting to stand for what's right soon brings murderous consequences.

As those closest to him are endangered--and news emerges that his father's accident may be something more sinister--Boyer finds himself fighting for his soul...and his life!

Is There Any Escape for
The Heir?

All the money he could ever crave.
In the splintering crash of a car plunging through a railing, Jason Boyer's life is changed.

All the fame he could ever desire.
But the last thing he wanted was the throne of his father's corrupt business empire.

All the power he could ever wield.
The estate should have gone elsewhere, but the will was changed.
And now everything is Jason's.
But gaining the whole world just might cost him his life.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 26, 2007 – It's a familiar plot: the death of a filthy rich relative-who of course altered his will just hours before his sudden demise-results in instant wealth for an heir no one expected. In this debut novel from Robertson, a computer programming consultant, young mogul Jason Boyer discovers that his newly minted fortune is tainted by his deceased robber-baron father's legacy of corruption, scandal and power brokering in New England. Will Jason find the moral courage to clean his corporate house and do something meaningful with his millions? And was his father's fatal car crash really an accident? Pacing is a problem throughout much of this story, which doesn't hit its stride and become a bona fide suspense novel until the final 50 pages. Most of the characters are routine stock figures-the upwardly mobile wife; the corpulent and scheming attorney-with only Jason's innocent younger brother Eric breaking the mold. Robertson offers some strong observations on greed and human nature, and adopts a refreshingly soft approach to religious faith. The humor, which could work well in another context, feels adolescent in such a dark tale. Despite promising themes and a decent plot, this God-and-mammon novel would benefit from stringent editing and stronger supporting characters.

Customer Reviews

Overall good book

Fast-paced energetic action. A good read although the end felt a little forced.
