The Bequest

The Bequest - Mike Farris

I was pleasantly surprised by this book, well I think that is putting it a little lightly, I was stunned by this book. This is the first book by Mike Farris that I have read and it definitely won't be the last. This book follows Terri Squire as she is struggling to turn her acting career around. She is bequeathed a screenplay from a screenwriter who committed suicide. Terri ends up making the movie but finds herself the prime suspect when suspicions arise concerning the screenwriter's death.


At the beginning of the book I didn't really like Terri. I didn't feel much sympathy for her over her career trouble and I couldn't believe that she would let her agents come crawling back when the mysterious script showed up. As I read more of the book and Terri's past was revealed a bit more I started to like her and really feel bad for her.


There was so much that happened in this book, so much action. Just when I thought something else couldn't possibly happen to top the last mysterious death/shooting/chase scene something else would happen leaving me hanging on the edge of my seat. Everything kept building up towards an explosion at the end and let me tell you I was definitely not disappointed with the ending. I would highly recommend this book if you are looking for a lot of action and a lot of mystery.


Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the chance to read this.
