"A manor house mystery"--Jacket.
Everyone wants a piece of millionaire Bennett Marshfield, owner of Marshfield Manor, and letters are coming in daily from those claiming to be poor relations. The elderly reclusive heir to the manor trusts no one but his aged curator, Abe. But when Abe is killed in a case of mistaken identity, things change dramatically. Shaken by murder, Grace Wheaton, lover of history and mystery, steps up to the challenge of assuming Abe's responsibilities. But now some of the letters arriving for Bennett have taken a nasty turn, demanding millions, or else. When an uninvited stalker shows up at the manor and then at Grace's home, she tries to get to the bottom of the strange events in order to protect Bennett and Marshfield Manor. She must unravel a botched Ponzi scheme, some torrid Wheaton family secrets, and sour grapes out for revenge.--From book jacket.
