An inheritance worth millions. A killer with a list…and Smiley's on it.
A phone call from out of the blue leads blind PI Steve Smiley to become executor of a large Texas estate—one which includes the last undeveloped lakefront property in the state. While the sheriff is hunting for the rancher's killer, a second death occurs. The ranch foreman is found murdered.
Someone is intent on getting their hands on that property. Any of the four siblings could be guilty of one, or both, of the murders. There's no love lost in the dysfunctional family. But which one wanted the land bad enough to kill for it? Or was it a conspiracy?
Steve and his partner Heather are hired to find out who killed the ranch foreman. They unearth a long-buried family secret that could solve the mystery, but will it also lead to more killing? A person desperate not to be discovered attacks Heather. Steve needs to stop the killer or the next funeral could be his.
