Grave Designs (Paperback)
With an ear for intelligent, breezy dialogue and clever plotting, Kahn spins an engrossing yarn. --Publishers Weekly
When Graham Anderson Marshall III of the prestigious corporate law firm Abbott & Windsor dies, even stranger than his bizarre death is the codicil to his will, which provides a large trust fund for the maintenance of a grave at a pet cemetery. The issue? No one in his family has ever owned a pet--much less one named Canaan. And since Abbott & Windsor is named as the sole beneficiary if the trust is deemed invalid, there is a conflict of interest.
They turn to Rachel Gold, the savvy young attorney who left the firm to open her own law office. But before she has a chance to find out what is inside Canaan's coffin at Wagging Tail Estates, the grave is robbed. Teaming up with her best buddy, the brilliant Benny Goldberg, Rachel sets out in search of the stolen contents, following an ominous trail of clues which leads into the heart of a secret legacy of three centuries of blackmail, sexual depravity, and murder. While tracking whatever had been in Canaan's grave, it's soon apparent to Rachel that someone has plans for hers...
