About the Book
Miranda Grimes is a wealthy heiress and the head of a powerful enterprise. Tired of shouldering the burden of her riches, which she blames for having irrevocably corrupted her two sons, Miranda decides to completely divest herself of the fortune that bears her name. After discovering her intention, her dissolute sons, along with the greedy family doctor, devise a plan to place Miranda in a sanatorium, thus getting her out of the way, while giving them complete access to the money she no longer wants them to have. Murder and mayhem ensue, drawing Miranda’s long-time friend and lawyer, and a meddling detective into the mix. Can they save her from her sons? Will she ever shed the heavy mantle of her vast fortune or feel loved by anyone ever again? After a worldwide quest for redemption, a sudden and dark twist of fate decides Miranda’s future…once and for all.
