Suspenseful from the first page to the last, A Testament to Murder is perfect for fans of And Then There Were None, Murder on the Orient Express, and Crooked House
A dying billionaire. Nine would-be heirs. But only one will take the prize...
At the lush Villa Calypso on the French Riviera, a dying billionaire launches a devious plan: at midnight each day he appoints a new heir to his vast fortune. If he dies within 24 hours, that person takes it all. If not, their chance is gone forever.
Yet these are no ordinary beneficiaries, these men who crossed him, women who deceived him, and distant relations intent on reclaiming the family fortune. All are determined to lend death a hand and outwit their rivals in pursuit of the prize.
As tensions mount with every passing second, retired Scotland Yard investigator Jasper must stay two steps ahead of every player if he hopes to prevent the billionaire’s devious game from becoming a testament to murder…
Now including the first chapter from Honeymoon with Dead, the next book in the Murder Will Follow series.

This was a well-written story, with enough twists and turns to keep one guessing!
Honestly, It’s OK
Yeah, this definitely a book that was published, the words were written and the cover art painted. I wouldn’t say it’s anything ground breaking, almost all but 1 of the characters are unlike able. The whole plot twist in my opinion was terrible as there was no real way of having the reader figure out who was the murderer as the story progresses. The red herring was painfully obvious. The first act was terribly boring and kinda confusing as the perspective switches between characters multiple times in a single chapter. 2nd act was kinda good, a classic murder mystery, 3rd act was… in word, mid. 2.8/5, would I pay $4 for it? No, hopefully the sequels are better
A+ and pulls you in for more of the series
Riveting story, could not stop reading! Kept you guessing until the ultimate reveal. Fans of Agatha Christie-style murder mysteries will enjoy. Definitely makes me want to read the rest of this author’s works.
