Frank May is back and more hesitant than ever to get involved. But a mystery finds him anyway, too bizarre for him to ignore. Many people believe in life after death, but how many believe in murder after death? Or at least the revelation of a murder from a dead mother?
Frank’s rich client Morris Gross firmly believes he had an out-of-body experience and went to heaven, where he met his dead mother. She makes the startling statement that somebody killed her—that she didn’t die a natural death like everyone thought.
Morris freely shares his story with a polite but skeptical Frank May. If that isn’t strange enough, Morris soon joins his mother—thanks to the bullet from a murderer's pistol. Now Frank has to deal with the estate of a murder victim, who may have been killed by someone who also dispatched his late mother. He also has to deal with the sometimes greedy, and always eccentric, heirs to Morris's fortune. Led by the free-living nephew Sebastian, the family confounds Frank and tests his patience, all while he strives to uncover the truth about the mother's death . . . so he can solve the mystery of her son’s murder. It may be just one loose thread too many for the lawyer-turned-reluctant-detective to spin together into a fabric that makes sense.
A new novel in the series The Frank May Chronicles, this book joins many other books and ebooks by Stanford law professor Lawrence M. Friedman which follow the adventures of middle-aged lawyer Frank May.
Frank May is a lawyer in San Mateo, California. He is no criminal defense lawyer, and he shirks from murder cases. But they find him anyway, and somehow he gets involved despite his better judgment. From Stanford law professor Lawrence Friedman.
