Uncommon Grounds coffee shop owner Maggy Thorsen thought that she was being responsible by reporting to the authorities the nearly fifty-thousand dollars in cash hidden in a trunk left for her by her late brother.

If Dickens Hart intended to get himself murdered, he couldn’t have planned better than to invite his possible progeny, and their mothers, to spend Thanksgiving weekend with him. Notorious for being an unapologetic, and exceedingly wealthy, Lothario, who often dallied amidst the “fawns” of his Playboy-like gentleman’s club, Dickens has an extensive Black Book list recording his affairs. This wouldn’t be a problem for former Wisconsin reporter AnnaLise Griggs, if she hadn’t just taken the distasteful but very well-paying job of writing Dickens’ memoir. Well, that and also recently discovering that she herself is the first, so far, declared illegitimate daughter and legitimate heir of Dickens Hart.
