Miami criminal attorney Jack Swyteck doesnt want Tatum Knight as a client. But the allegedly reformed contract killer is the brother of Jacks best friend, and the assassin swears he had nothing to do with the shooting death of Sally Fenning, though he claims the beautiful, depressed multi-millionairess wanted him to do the deed. Even so, Knight has been named in Fennings will, along with five others, all vying for a fortune. The catch is that only the last living would-be beneficiary will inherit the $46 million. So begins a twisted game of survival of the greediest and deadliest as, one-by-one, the heirs start to fall. And suddenly Jacks caught up in a chilling race to ensure that the next to die is not Jack Swyteck.
