Adam Blaine is called home to Martha’s Vineyard when his father, famous author Benjamin Blaine, has died. Benjamin tumbled off a cliff, but no one believes he would have killed himself. When Adam arrives home after being away for a decade, he discovers that his father has written a new will: one that cuts out Adam’s mother and brother. Adam is the executor of the will, which means he must carry out his father’s last wishes, even though it’s the last thing he wants to do. Adam spends the next two weeks trying to figure out if his father was murdered, who did it, and how he can pull off not following through on his father’s will.
