Jill Handabout this book: There's trouble at White Oaks, the sprawling Southern mansion that's home to the Trapnell family. Billionaire patriarch Blanton Trapnell is about to turn ninety and he has an unusual birthday request, one which his children - spoiled Aimee, dim-witted Trainor and Marsh, an arms dealer with a social conscience - are hesitant to comply with. What was to have been a victimless crime turns sour and now there's a body to dispose of in a swamp filled with hungry alligators. The Trapnells' problems intensify with a race to recover an ancient artifact that takes the quarreling siblings careening from South Georgia to Italy's glittering Amalfi coast to Yellowstone National Park on the trail of a villain who plans to destroy the world. The pace is lightning fast and the laughs are abundant in what reviewers called a gripping roller-coaster of a novel. With a family like the Trapnells anything can happen. The twists and turns keep on coming to the final page.
