This book slowly draws you in as you follow the two storylines; Tristan who is trying to find evidence that will allow him to inherit a large fortune, and Ashley who devised the will. As Ashley’s story is revealed Tristan begins his search. I had to keep reading to find out the ending of this richly detailed story that includes World War I and mountaineering expeditions to Everest. But then the ending!, it stops without revealing the full story! It was frustrating and stopped this from being a fantastic read.
