An allegedly "reformed" contract killer is the last client Miami criminal attorney Jack Swyteck wants. But Tatum Knight is the older brother of Jack's best friend--and the ruthless assassin swears he had nothing to do with shooting death of Sally Fenning, though he claims the beautiful, depressed multi-millionairess tried to hire him to do the deed. The biggest surprise, however, comes when Knight is named in Fenning's will, along with five others, all vying for a fortune.
But there's a catch: only the last living would-be beneficiary will inherit the $46 million, a sum well worth killing for. A twisted game of survival of the greediest--and deadliest--has been set into motion as, one-by-one, the heirs start to fall. And suddenly Jack's caught up in a chilling race to prove his client's innocence or guilt ... and to ensure that the last to die is not Jack Swyteck.
