Nine people have gathered for the reading of Aurore Gerritsen’s will. Some are family, others are strangers. But all are about to have their futures changed, forever…
Aurore left clear instructions: her will is to be read over a four-day period at her summer cottage on a small island. Those who don’t stay will forfeit their inheritance. With a vast fortune at stake, no one will take that risk.

But with a savage hurricane approaching outside, tensions inside reach a dangerous climax. Can Aurore’s heirs survive the storm?
