The Chartreuse Suitcase
My client’s inheritance was stolen from him when he was only 14 years old by his brother after their parents were killed in a car accident. His foster mother, then his legal guardian, conceived the theft and seduced the older brother to join in the plot as her accomplice.
More lethal schemes followed as the fortune grew over the years. As this woman he called his mother aged, her beauty faded but not her seductive prowess. Her fortune became the seduction-until her lawyer attempts to acquire it when she dies.
Now 93 and herself a homicide victim, her past is relived and revealed as we attempt to reclaim my client’s lost inheritance-now worth over $20 million. This fortune could be forfeited to the State if a criminal case intervenes.
In an effort to find justice for his client, his lawyer must walk a legal tightrope through probate law, complications, legal ethics, criminal law and the flawed character of all parties involved, including his client. “Justice” comes in many different forms and places, and in its own time.

As a lawyer, the author has been writing for 60 years, but mostly for clients. His recent book, “A Widower’s Journey In Faith Love and Good Humor” was a loving memoir about his deceased wife and his new wife who rescued him from that grief. This new book, “The Chartreuse Suitcase” is a mystery novel pieced together from law cases for its characters and plot. Other mysteries will follow, all in the Probate Court venue which has been a mainstay of his practice. In his search for Justice, he allows you the reader to become judge and jury.
