Adam Blaine is called home to Martha’s Vineyard when his father, famous author Benjamin Blaine, has died. Benjamin tumbled off a cliff, but no one believes he would have killed himself. When Adam arrives home after being away for a decade, he discovers that his father has written a new will: one that cuts out Adam’s mother and brother. Adam is the executor of the will, which means he must carry out his father’s last wishes, even though it’s the last thing he wants to do. Adam spends the next two weeks trying to figure out if his father was murdered, who did it, and how he can pull off not following through on his father’s will.
I enjoyed this book. It was full of twists and turns., and it keeps you guessing until the very end. Adam Blaine is a very complex character, and his reasons for leaving the Vineyard aren’t apparent until the very end of the book. He isn’t the only complex character in the book. Each and every character has their secrets, which adds to the mystery and intrigue. I’ve been reading Richard North Patterson’s books for a long time, and he doesn’t disappoint with Fall from Grace. After I finished the book, I wanted to start reading it again.
