Plot summary[edit]

Frances Schreuder, a mother who is very mean to her sons, especially when they don't measure up to her expectations, and very greedy, decides she wants her inheritance from her rich father, multimillionaire Franklin Bradshaw. Frances has done some evil things to get what she wants. For example, she has forged some of her father's checks to get things she wants and had her sons steal from him when they were visiting him in his Salt Lake City business from their New York City home the summer before his death. She decides she wants her money really soon and manipulates her son Marc into murdering her father.
