When the weekly list of unclaimed estates is published, probate researchers, brother and sister team Dan and Rachel, search backwards through the family line to find the true heir and get a slice of the fortune. Their quest leads them to uncover a broken family with a terrible secret.

Henry Gaunt has died leaving a sizeable estate but no Will. His step-sister can't inherit and there are no known kin. The step-sister doesn't know much about Henry's father: she thinks he died in the Second World War when Henry was a small child. Dan and Rachel's investigation leads to a surprising discovery.
