Many women come out of the woodwork to claim this fortune. One of them, with the most plausible story, becomes the murder victim. Who on earth could have killed her, and why? And what role, if any, was played by Aunt Clara's sensational diary, which seemed to describe yet another murder? Almost in spite of himself, Frank seeks to find the solution to this tangled affair.
Part of the series The Frank May Chronicles, by Stanford law professor Lawrence M. Friedman and published by Quid Pro Books.
Frank avoids murder cases like most people avoid the dentist. That's not so easy to do when a dead body shows up during his routine appointment for a teeth cleaning, and he is thrust into an investigation that bridges his law practice. He needs to get to the root of this death. That will take more than scraping the surface of a dental practice with deep secrets and suspicious characters — or the nearby, bizarre Xyloquex Corporation.
If Frank May is up to the task, he seems to be the last one to know it.
A new QP Mystery, in the series The Frank May Chronicles. Other novels in the series include The Book Club Murder, Death of a Wannabe, Death of a One-Sided Man, and An Unnatural Death.
