Debut novelist Paul Robertson delivers a critically acclaimed page turner that thrusts an idealistic young man into the swirling vortex of a corrupt empire.

When New England’s premier powerbroker dies, his 28-year-old son Jason is surprised to find he is the sole heir. At first, Jason angrily rejects this billion-dollar bequest, but he’s gradually seduced by the very power and prestige he despises. When he finally starts to right past wrongs, however, a series of murders sends him fleeing for his life.

    " I have to admit, I got more and more annoyed with the priorities of the main character before the novel completed. It seemed like he wanted to give up his money as a cop out for responsibility. It was kind of like having a child hero. "

    " I didn't expect to like this book but I actually did - the suspense was great, writing was fast-paced and kept me engaged. The only thing I really didn't like was the ending, felt it was a bit abrupt and sorta flung God in at the last minute for some reason. "
