Inherit the Dead is a serial novel with twenty  best-selling crime authors contributing a chapter.  Different writing styles and voices tell the story of one murder.

Plot from publisher's website and Goodread:  Pericles "Perry" Christo is a PI with a past; a former cop, who lost his badge and his family when a corruption scandal left him broke and disgraced. When wealthy Upper East Side matron Julia Drusilla summons him one cold February night, he grabs what seems to be a straightforward (and lucrative) case.   The socialite is looking for her beautiful, aimless daughter, Angelina, who is about to become a very wealthy young woman.   

I had a difficult time reading this book because of the varied voices.  I really wanted to like this book, however the plot and characters  were not interesting to me.  YMMV - your mileage may vary.
