The Testament




AN AMERICAN CLASSIC FROM THE NO.1 BESTSELLING MASTER THRILLER WRITER

_______________________________________
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-octane Washington litigator who's lived too hard, too fast, for too long. Emerging from his fourth stay in rehab, he knows returning to the real world is always difficult, but this time it's going to be murder.

Rachel Lane is a young woman who chose to give her life to God, who walked away from the modern world and went to live and work with an isolated indigenous tribe in the deepest jungles of Brazil. She is also Troy Phelen's estranged daughter.

When Phelen commits suicide and leaves a shocking will behind him, these three lives collide in a unique blend of legal suspense and adventure - and none of their lives will be the same after the revelation of the startling secrets of the Testament.
