|Plot Summary of The Road to Inheritance|
Will is to be bequeathed the proceeds from a valuable necklace that his uncle comes across (being some kind of long lost family relic). However, it is soon stolen, and with no clue as to the thieves, we assume that his sudden luck has expired all too soon. Randomly, though he bumps into one of the alleged thieves in Birmingham, and persuades his friend to follow him in pursuit. What follows is a harrowing, yet gripping roller coaster as they play cat and mouse with their captors up in a deserted region of Scotland, still clinging onto the hope of actually recovering Will's precious jewel. The tension in the penultimate chapter as Will gives his enemy chase across a dark field is amongst the most intense I've ever read!
