Deborah Kuhn was passed from cousin to cousin until she went to work with the New York Public Library. A traffic accident sends her to the hospital where the doctors find she has a rare brain tumor. The tumor is hereditary, passed from mother to daughter, to granddaughter.
Sherman Allen and Deborah’s search for the roots of her identity reveal a dark story of murder, greed and avarice stretching across two generations. They survive a kidnapping, a shooting and a determined effort to prevent them from learning of her heritage and keep her from asserting ownership to a vast pre-World War II fortune.
The only clue they have is a Medical Paper written by a two doctors on the brain tumor.
