"'Girl in Coma Inherits Fortune'-that is how the headlines read when terminally ill tycoon Ellis Esterland was beaten to death at a stop on the Florida Turnpike two years ago-murdered as his daughter lay unconscious, never to recover from a road accident. When she died a few weeks later, the bulk of his estate went to his estranged wife, Josie-and to the benefit of Josie's weird friend Kesner, a film maker. Esterland's son Ron got nothing-and now he promises McGee half the inheritance he lost if McGee can discover the truth about the unsolved murder."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
