5.0 out of 5 stars
"FOUND" - New Favorite Suspense Author, July 20 2004
This is my first book from James Grippando but certainly won't be the last. The book starts with a bang and it builds momentum.
When Ryan's father died, he left him 2 million dollars in the attic. It is up to Ryan to figure out where and how his father got his hand on so much cash.
At the time that Ryan is learning about this unexpected inheritance, Amy Parkens whose mother died of a suicide 20 years ago receives two hundred thousand from Ryan's father.
Ryan and Amy are drawn together in order to solve the mystery of who was Frank Duffy.
Without giving the plot, I have to say that this was one of the quickest books I have ever read because I gobbled up 450 pages in less than 3 days (a record for me). Once Ryan and Amy start searching for answers they stir the pot and pretty soon you have an ex-wife, slimy lawyer, malicious brother-in-law and a miserable sister, all dying to get their hands on the money.
Well you can guess how the book progresses, each time you think you have figured out who is guilty or who is not, Grippando surprises us with another twist.
This was truly a good book that left me wanting to read all his books.
