The Inheritors

The Inheritors (EPUB ebook)

By Cayre, Hannelore

She had been dead now for four days and I had become rich. Unimaginably rich. Blanche de Rigny has always considered herself the black sheep of the family. And a black sheep on crutches at that. But it turns out her family tree has branches she didn't even know existed. And m...any of them are rotten to the core. As Blanche learns more about the legacy left by her wealthy Parisian ancestors, she decides a little family tree pruning might be in order. But great wealth also brings great responsibility - a form of richesse oblige, perhaps - and Blanche has a plan to use her inheritance to cure the world of its ills. Spanning two centuries, from Paris on the eve of the Franco-Prussian War to the modern day, this unforgettable family saga lays bare the persistent and poisonous injustice of inequality. In her trademark razor-sharp style, Hannelore Cayre again delivers the sardonic humour and devilish creativity that made The Godmother an international bestseller. 'Hannelore Cayre's new novel is sharp, subversive and irreverent with truly memorable characters, a political undertone and the kind of dark humour only a French crime writer of the highest calibre can do so well.' -Kate McIntosh, Readings 'A tightly plotted and darkly funny tale of trade in human bodies and souls.' -Kerryn Goldsworthy, The Age 'As corrosive as ever, the author of The Godmother unleashes her caustic eloquence in an hilariously black tale that mocks the self-perpetuation of the elite.' -Paris Match
