His uncle’s machinations finally exposed, Herman Bellows set out to disrupt them.
For years he was the doting nephew, thankful for the warmth and width of his father’s brother’s home. The steady meals, the library – shelves upon bowed shelves tightly filled with leather-bound volumes of greater men’s experiences, and the weekly stipend that kept him free of the daily chore of work.
However, since discovering the motive behind the apparent kindness bestowed, Bellows set his own plan to discredit and defame the figure of his considerate uncle.
A fortune, years forgotten, was his to have, if he found it first.
