Lethal Trust : The patriarch and owner of a two-billion-dollar NFL franchise is dying.
Paul Childs, whether in wisdom or in wickedness, leaves behind an unusually cruel family trust. A trust that contains a Last Man Standing clause: only the single last survivor of his seven children will be heir to his fortune.
One heir-apparent sees that her siblings are being killed one by one, and fears she might be next. She knows she needs help, but she won’t get the kind of help she needs from the police.
The case has no legal legs, yet Tucson’s gutsy private investigator, Cassidy Clark, dives into it headfirst, intrigued by both her client’s pleas and the well-known family name. There’s nothing like a depraved display of sibling rivalry over one of the greatest motives. Money.
“The rumors spread like the invasive buffelgrass that plagued the desert with a threat of raging brush fires.
Claudia Childs, Paul’s wife, shielded herself and as best she could, her husband, from the press and roving cameras. Two children stood up to field the questions and try to quench the gossip.
Banded together, Nick Childs and Manny Childs presented a solid fortress like the mammoth upright gates to Jurassic Park in an attempt to embrace the media while protecting the reputation of both their father and the team. They had the program down pat. They’d smile and embrace whomever gathered with a quick acknowledgments of thanks for their caring about Paul Childs’ welfare. They’d deliver a brief report that their father had been enduring a lot of stress on and off the field but he had been receiving proper care as he prepared himself for the next big game. Conspicuous in its absence were any details. Nick and Manny would josh around with the vultures, as they deemed the press to be. They flirted with the pretty girls and wrapped up before any questions were presented, with both of them and arms above their heads, yelling in unison, “This is the year we go all the way. Go, Scorpions!”
On this day, both Nick and Manny received simultaneous texts.”
