When self-made millionaire and widower Leon Farrell dies, he leaves behind a legacy of family dysfunction - and a missing will. The possible loss of a fortune only increases the existing tension between his three grown children. While handsome slacker Edgar kicks back in anticipation of his windfall, middle child Gunther struggles to save his software business and fiercely independent Shirley unsuccessfully tries to stay out of the fray. But things soon take an explosive turn and the siblings find themselves battling each other to protect their own interests.

display_description "When the sun goes down on my life, you'll all come apart like ripped balloons."
When stingy self-made millionaire and widower Leon Farrell dies, he leaves behind a legacy of family dysfunction—and a missing will. It's soon clear that his three grown children, Edgar, Gunther, and Shirley, don't handle loss well—the possible loss of a fortune, that is. And when Edgar hires a private investigator to track down the will, it's just the beginning of a search that will lead the siblings to re-visit their childhoods, uncover buried secrets, and ultimately learn for themselves what it means to be a family...
Praise for the Novels of Gwynne Forster
