Book by Robertson, Paul J.
  • Kalrajas
When his father suddenly dies in an accident that could have been murder, suicide or just an accident, Jason Boyer reluctantly inherits a vast fortune and the power that comes with it. First he tries to turn it all down, but then he goes for the wealth and the power, only to discover how rotten and corrupt it all is. People are getting killed, and Jason is having second thoughts about the whole thing, but his wife is thoroughly enjoying herself with all the new money.
This plot is a bit Grishamish and is the strength of this story, whereas the charachter development is the weak part. The main character is well developed and interesting enough, but some of the others, like the wife and the brother, are rather undeveloped.
The writing is OK, with a touch of irony and humour. I would recommend this book because of the plot and the main character whom I find rather interesting when he struggles with his conscience, but it was rather annoying that the characters closest to him were so one dimensional.
Therefore, with this plot and the ending - which came as a surprise to me - I think this story would be a better movie than it is a book.

Its a good start but gets very slow after that. The main character Jason is whining and flip flops a lot, quite annoying in fact as is his family but then the story starts to develop. The hunt for the killer gets more interesting and the whole novel explodes towards the end. The end is very good and you can only imagine what a terrible situation he was in, which gets gradually worse until he becomes desperate. Well worth a read but you have to persist at first.

After reading so many 1-star reviews of this book, I almost decided not to read The Heir. Then I remembered the old saying "you can please some of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time". I also have very eclectic tastes, so, I gave it a try. I'm so glad I did.

It was a very refreshing change from my normal reads. Jason's witty, dry humor made me smile a lot. The author was able to get the thoughts and feelings of the characters across without being vulgar or crude which is commendable.

The challenges that Jason faced and the intimidating, ruthless individuals that he had to deal with made Jason's character even more likeable because he found the strength and courage to try to do the right thing under almost impossible odds. And for someone who, supposedly, never worked a day in his life (other than college) proved to have exceptional work ethics showing him to be an honorable man.

The story line didn't linger on one thought for too long. It kept moving forward at a good pace.

As for him always asking the question "Why am I here?" showed that Jason felt that there had to be more to life than just existing and being content with doing nothing. Doing what's right isn't always easy and it came with a lot of consequences and hardship for him.

I believe this book really gets you thinking about what is really happening in our world. How easily corruptible business, politics and people can become when the focus is all about the money and the power it creates. It can turn your world upside down very easily.

I gave the author 5-stars because I don't believe this was an easy book to write and yet the characters were portrayed very well and the message was clear and to the point.

I must admit that I had high hopes when I started reading this novel. There's nothing like a good mystery, a whodunit full of intrigue and suspicious characters. Jason Boyer is a likeable protagonist, although somewhat flawed and much too clueless for a hero. Jason spends an inordinate amount of time on questions such as "Why am I here?" "Why am I rich and not poor?" "Did my father love me--or only his riches and power?" The repetition of these questions becomes tiresome after awhile and I found the denouement unsatisfying.

The questions that make this potentially a mystery are,
"Was the rich father murdered?"
"The rich man's widow subsequently dies--is it murder or suicide?"

The police detective, part of a corrupt political system, is too awed by the rich and powerful to do his job. He asks point-blank,"Mr. Boyer, don't you want us to find your father's murderer?"

Jason retorts, "He's dead, and the rest doesn't matter."

Here's where it falls apart--no one in the story cares about the answers to the questions about the murders. Why then should the reader? When the murders multiply, finally the solution to the puzzle falls into Jason's lap--much like his unwanted riches--without much effort or desire on his part.

What were the redeeming parts for me? (I finished the story to the end, after all). I liked Jason's wife, Katie; his late father's secretary, Pamela; and his brother, Eric. If one of these likable characters had also committed to some detective work, and taken that task out of Jason's incapable hands, then the story would have been thoroughly enjoyable in my view.

The first part of the book was pretty good, and the author did well in an area that few writers do in free books: the main character's dialogue was really funny, but not in a 'trying too hard' way. Don't want to give away spoilers, but with the humorous dialogue, I was picturing a light hearted, movie-of-the-week finish. Did not expect the book to turn so dark near the end. The bad guy was pretty predictable but that's true of most suspense books.

In any case, with the beginning humor, it would have been nice to see the main character plot his way out of the dilemma by doing something creative (a la the Oceans 11 movies or the TV show "Leverage".)

Another reviewer talked about the main character changing his mind so much, but I thought the auhor did a pretty good job showing how someone might really react to a huge windfall. Noble principles ok, but that much money would make anyone giddy.

Agree w/other comments that the supporting characters were one dimensional - couldn't figure out if I liked the wife or not.

Not bad for a free book - better editing would help.
