Synopsis:

In The Trust, private investigator Liam Taggart returns to his childhood home in Ireland for his uncle’s funeral. He quickly learns that not only was his uncle shot to death, but that he’d anticipated his own murder. In an astonishing last will and testament, his uncle has left his entire estate to a secret trust, directing that no distributions be made to any person until thekiller is found. As Liam’s investigation draws him farther into the past, he realizes must consider disparate sources and motives as he comes to realize danger only increases with each passing day. The killer has served notice that he is not finished, and one-by-one, members of the Taggart family – including Liam’s wife and child – realize that they too are at risk.


Review:

If you don't know much about 'the Troubles', in Ireland, this book will help you learn a LOT about the time period, even if it is a work of fiction. Every family has its secrets, facts and truths that get hidden behind mistruths and falsehoods. In this story, all those come out, thanks to a mysterious letter, and the death of his uncle. Liam returns from Chicago to Ireland to try to solve his uncle's death, and along the way he uncovers truths and lies, and has to discover which is which. When the bodies start piling up, Liam realizes the murderer may not be who he thinks it is, and the story really picks up the pace, leading to a page turner of a read that you just can't put down, until you discover who the real murderer is!
