Summary

A large inheritance greatly transforms the lives of three people: a good man, who would have inherited at least a part of the fortune if his uncle hadn't passed away before he could alter the will, his cousin, who inherits all but is prevented from enjoying it, and a gambler, who is in desperate need of such a sum of money. The connection of the three ends fatal for at least one of them.

Reviews

RtR

- Good but somewhat depressing

I listened to this and its sequel and found it to be very sad. Well written and well translated, but with a pall of unhappiness that (perhaps for personal reasons) left me with a heavy heart.
