Thriller mystery story about a guy who tracks down heirs of the recently deceased for a living -- and a share of the profits. This tale involves a very rich man who dies with no obvious inheritors. Heir hunter Nick Merchant commits some small-time bribery to get access to the guy’s files and learns that the case may be much more complicated than it seems. There is a shadowy government involvement and the high money competition of more established heir hunting firms. The bulk of this novel is not about merchat finding the heirs, but trying to figure out who is hunting him. Fun, read it at the beach or over some other lazy afternoon. The author is apprently an actual heir hunter and I’d love to hear more non-fiction accounts of that profession someother time.
