The Trust by Sean Keefer

The Trust

To attorney Noah Parks, the probate of a will should be a simple task. But the Last Will and Testament of Leonardo Xavier Cross is anything but simple. Though Parks has never heard of Cross, he learns that the Will directs that he provide the legal representation for the estate and as part of his fee he receive the contents of a safety deposit box – a safety deposit box no one knew existed. Intrigued, Parks undertakes the task but after the body count begins to rise the otherwise basic task of probating the will becomes more complicated as each day passes. Despite all of Parks’ skills, the answers he seeks remain elusive and force him to delve deeper into the shocking and deceptive Cross’ family history which sets the stage for an explosive finale that Parks can only hope to survive. Set in Charleston, South Carolina, The Trust is the debut novel from Sean Keefer. Blending elements of traditional southern literary fiction, suspense and mystery; you won’t be satisfied until the final page is turned.


The Trust, set in Charleston, South Carolina, is the debut novel from Sean Keefer.

Born in North Carolina where, he has been told, he lived for the first year of his life. He was raised near the coast of South Carolina. After graduating from a small high school in the north east corner of the South Carolina and, following college at The University of South Carolina, he knew he had to get away from South Carolina. After two years of traveling the US and Canada in the employ of Phi Delta Theta, he knew he had to get back to the South Carolina coast.

Growing up in South Carolina, his life was molded around the styles, mannerisms, idiosyncrasies, dialects and culture of the Palmetto State he called his home. The time Sean spent traveling the Carolinas and the rest of the country, together with his South Carolina roots, give him a vast array of experiences and observations which he draws upon and blends together in his writing.

After studying law in North Carolina, Sean settled in Charleston, South Carolina and instantly became enamored with the people as well as the city he chose to call his home. Of course this is no surprise, Charleston makes it easy for this to happen.

Inspired by a life long love of the written word, without planning, one day Sean began writing. A page became a chapter which ultimately became a book known as The Trust. Hopefully if you are reading this bio you either have, or soon will have, your own copy of his debut novel.

The experience of taking a novel from conceptualization to print has been one of frustration, reward, learning and old fashion hard work. It was an accomplishment just to have finished the novel. Each step from the first words hitting the page to the eve of the publication of The Trust has been a personal reward for Sean and, as this first novel comes to publication, at least one more is in the works.

When Sean is not writing he practices Family Law and works as a Domestic Mediator. Sean can frequently be found wandering the Lowcountry of South Carolina with his camera, playing guitar in assorted venues around Charleston or exploring the underwater world of the southeastern US.

Sean lives with his wife and two Australian Shepherds in Charleston, South Carolina.

Sean Keefer (sean_keefer) | 1 comments I only just saw this comment and wanted to respond. I am an attorney and it was easy for me to write about that which I was familiar - so I ended up with a legal thriller.
