A New Southern Gothic Novel by Jill Hand
from Black Rose Writing
Aimee Trapnell reluctantly leaves her apartment on Manhattan’s Central Park West to return to her childhood home in Georgia for her father’s ninetieth birthday. Also on hand are her two brothers, wily Marsh and ne’er do well Trainor. With a forty billion dollar inheritance at stake, they’re willing to do whatever it takes to make the old man happy.
To their shock they learn that what their father wants for this birthday is to kill someone. He doesn’t care who. He just wants to know what it’s like to commit murder.
Betrayal, double-dealing, and fast-paced action set the Trapnells on a collision course with an unexpected villain. Their journey takes them fro the swamps of Georgia, to Italy’s glittering Amalfi coast, to rugged Yellowston National Park. Aimee and her brothers have been pampered and indulged all their lives, now they must step up and become heroes, before it’s too late.
