Noah Parks is an obscure lawyer in Charleston, South Caroline. He is surprised to learn Leonardo Cross, a wealthy Charlestonian, has named him to probate his will since they have never met. In return for his services, Noah will receive the contents of a safety deposit box that no one knew existed. Things become even more complicated as people near the estate begin dying. Will Noah figure out what is going on and survive to learn what is in the safety deposit box?
Noah was a very humble, likely character. Unlike most people’s idea of a lawyer, he’s a nice guy who isn’t in it for the money. He happily has a small practice that is quite informal. He was easy to root for. His taste in women, not so much. I don’t really enjoy the middle-aged men lusting for young women scenario. Other than that, Noah was a great main character. Clever and full of common sense, his actions (away from women) were quite reasonable and believable.
I found the ending to be quite familiar. I’m not sure from where, but I felt like I’d read it before. It was still enjoyable, but I definitely had a deja vu feeling reading it.
Overall, this was an enjoyable legal thriller. There was much more investigative mystery-solving treasure-hunting than legal drama, but it was a book I’d recommend.
