Beverly Hills resident and world-renowned antiques dealer Morris Maximilian DeLane III is still haunted by his dying mother’s last words: I should have killed your father when I had the chance. Now days later, his mother is gone, and he is the sole inheritor of her estate, La Rose Blanche. Even though he is wealthy in his own right, a vast fortune awaits him—or so he thinks. As Morris arrives at La Rose Blanche, he has no idea that James Hunt, the administrator of his mother’s affairs, has disappeared, leaving Morris with unimaginable debt. As Morris sets out to track down Hunt without the help of the authorities, suspicion grows around the circumstances surrounding his mother’s death. Morris delves into her past and unwittingly uncovers a secret from her childhood that changes the fate of everyone involved. In this spine-tingling tale, an antiques dealer caught up in the mysterious manner of his mother’s death and the dangerous hunt for her missing fortune is about to discover that things are rarely as simple as they seem. “Rollicking, entertaining and fun …. An edgy (and, yes, sometimes even bizarre) novel that leaves the reader musing on any number of issues: family, sexuality, friends and the aftermath of lies.” —Michael Vincent, social worker

Excerpt from In War Times at La Rose Blanche It was a soft warm afternoon in March. The orange-trees were in bloom, and so were the roses and the honeysuckles and the violets, and a little breeze that came up from the river brought in all their blended sweets. The birds were singing in the magnolia-trees that shaded the broad avenue leading down to the front gate; and yellow and gold-dusted butterflies were zigzagging about the flower-dotted lawn. Overhead the sky was blue oh! So blue, and away over by the sugar-house, where we could see the snow-white tents of the camp, with the flag fluttering from the tall flag-staff.
