From the Publisher
This New York Times and USA Today bestseller, now
in paperback, is a collaboration between twenty bestselling mystery
novelists who have joined forces to create a spellbinding story of
love, betrayal, and intrigue. "Readers can't go wrong with this
juicy thriller" raves Library Journal.
Pericles "Perry" Christo is a PI with a past-a former cop who lost
his badge and his family when a corruption scandal left him broke
and disgraced. So when wealthy Upper East Side matron Julia
Drusilla summons him one cold February night, he grabs what seems
to be a straightforward (and lucrative) case.
The socialite is looking for her beautiful, aimless daughter,
Angelina, who is about to become a very wealthy young woman. But as
Christo digs deeper, he discovers there's much more to the lovely
"Angel" than meets the eye. This classic noir tale twists and turns
down New York's mean streets and along Hamptons'' beaches and back
roads during a bitterly cold and gray winter where nothing is as it
seems and everyone has something to hide.
In this inventive "serial novel" storytelling approach, each of the
twenty bestselling writers brings his or her distinctive voice to a
chapter of Inherit the Dead, building the tension to a
shocking, explosive finale. The editor, Jonathan Santlofer, has
arranged to donate any royalties in excess of editor and
contributor compensation to Safe Horizon, the leading victim
assistance agency in the country.
