Eve discovers her legacy is an enchanting villa overlooking the Mediterranean sea and suddenly, life could not be more glamorous.
Alone in paradise, Eve must unlock the story behind her surprise bequest - before events turn deadly.
Reminiscent of a Golden Age mystery, A Fatal Inheritance is an intoxicating story of dysfunctional families and long-hidden secrets, set against the razzle-dazzle and decadence of the French Riviera.
