An engaging and highly entertaining novel about the ups and downs of a caper gone awry
When old Mr. Sobryne dies, he leaves a fortune to his three sons and his mistress. In a message from beyond the grave, he instructs them on its profitable disposal and foresees the attendant intrigues they will encounter. Little could he have known, though, how the beautiful Mathilde and the bumbling sons would lead a chase around the world and home again before they lose and regain and lose and regain the inheritance.
