Then, quite suddenly, Miles remembers that he donated sperm to a sperm bank maybe 20 years prior. Those children are grown now and they’re his children. His next project is to find them so he can let them know about the Huntington’s and to probably disperse his wealth. But someone is getting to the kids first – they’re dying before Miles can get to them.
The chapters alternate between various characters including Miles, his brother and sister-in-law, several of Miles’ kids and a few bad guys.
It’s a pretty good novel, complex and twisty but light almost to the point of humorous. The narrator, George Newburn, does a very good job. I think I’m going to have to read more of Barclay’s crime novels.
