The Testament


Troy Phelen is one of the richest men in the United States, and he's looking for a way to die.

He might just have found it.

Nate O'Riley is a high-powered Washington litigator who's lived hard and fast for too long. Emerging from his fourth stay in rehab, he knows returning to the real world is going to be murder.

Meanwhile Troy's estranged daughter walked away from the modern world and devoted her life to God, moving to the isolated deep jungles of Brazil.

When Troy dies and leaves a shocking will behind him, three lives collide with vast repercussions.

And no one will ever be the same after the startling secrets of The Testament . . .
