A thriller sparked by a will delving back into unspeakable crimes in the not so distant past...a first novel by an actual heir hunter...a guy who tries to track down possible heirs of disputed or not wills....this novel raises some interesting questions about the process and some neat philosophical queries about the notion of wealth and dispensation.
I read this in a action and lots of fresh ideas in a book over ten years old. This genre needs some new topics, but this book dealt with an issue that is in the news right now. I am looking for other books by this author.

Una agencia de detectives privados se dedica a localizar herederos perdidos para patrimonios no sujetos a testamento. Para conseguir las mejores herencias no dudarán en traspasar la línea de lo legal y lo ilegal.
Interesting line of work: finding heirs who are unaware of potential inheritances; and taking a cut for yourself.

A little wishy-washy in places; not too bad of a read.

took way too long to read because of the holidays. but it was good, reminded me of a Grisham novel, lots of action, happy ending.
Interesting concept. This was something I never read about before
