Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In a plush Virginia office, a rich, angry old man is furiously rewriting his will. With his death just hours away, Troy Phelan wants to send a message to his children, his ex-wives, and his minions—a message that will touch off a vicious legal battle and transform dozens of lives.

Because Troy Phelan’s new will names a sole surprise heir to his eleven-billion-dollar fortune: a mysterious woman named Rachel Lane, a missionary living deep in the jungles of Brazil.

Enter the lawyers. Nate O’Riley is fresh out of rehab, a disgraced corporate attorney handpicked for his last job: to find Rachel Lane at any cost. As Phelan’s family circles like vultures in D.C., Nate goes crashing through the Brazilian jungle, entering a world where money means nothing, where death is just one misstep away, and where a woman—pursued by enemies and friends alike—holds a stunning surprise of her own.

Inspiring

Read this book in Italy twelve years ago and led me to be a better person, trying to avoid all those mistakes Nate made. I was 34, lived in Italy working as a busy lawyer.
Now I'm 46, live in Chicago, divorced, went twice to rehab and read again this book. I made half of Nate's mistakes, fortunately no kids.
Hope to meet my Rachel sometime and to read this book more often
