KIRKUS REVIEW

A villa in Venice lends an overlay of elegant decadence to an old man's hoax, as a deathbed invitation to three friends offers the vista of vast wealth, but breeds scavenger suspicions which end in murder. Only a young man and a young girl escape the contamination of great expectations and the old man's vengeful whim... More than a little malice and menace keep this tense.
