I am up to my eyeballs in moving boxes! That is a good thing as it took the movers a scary long time to get around to actually moving our stuff but it’s here and I am very happy about that. I am also happy to share with you the book from author Dennis Roth, The Bastard’s Inheritance. Read on to learn all about it.
About The Bastard’s Inheritance:
In the 1970s, in western Pennsylvania, a multi-millionaire’s singularly selfish decision destines his two sons, half-brothers, to wage war in a winner-take-all battle for the family legacy.
The father, wealthy Henry Molnar, shares a secret with his lawyer and best friend, Murray Applebaum; a secret so damaging and powerful that neither has ever dared to reveal its truth. But the final whispered directives of Molnar set in motion a series of events with far-reaching consequences for his family.
With his last breath, Molnar instructs Applebaum to disclose the existence of his illegitimate son, Phillipe-André Desforges. The surprise revelation at Molnar’s funeral thrusts the family members onto paths of deception, corruption and blackmail. Revenge infused hatred and contempt for his father and his empire permeate Phillipe-André’s daily thoughts. It compels him to employ an arsenal of devious strategies to wrest control of Molnar Enterprises from his benevolent brother, Jason Molnar.
With such high stakes, Jason as the bequeathed chairman of the board must garner the psychological strength to withstand his half-brother’s siege. The consequences of failure will deliver to Phillipe-André what he has long believed to be rightfully his.
About the Author:
An outstanding book requires a remarkable author writing interesting characters.
Dennis Roth is always stretching his boundaries and does the same for his readers and fictional
characters. This has led to a remarkable life. When he has become an expert in a field, he moves
directly off to another. After earning an engineering degree from MIT, he founded what has become
one of the largest structural engineering firms on the east coast of the US.
He retired young and lived with his wife on-board their 35-foot sailboat, Second Wind, in the Caribbean. After enjoying a thousand magnificent sunsets and then burying the anchor, he moved to watercolor painting. His innate skills blossomed into beautiful, nationally shown and awarded landscapes and seascapes that he exhibited and sold in his art gallery, Studio Phase 3. Since 2012 he has dedicated his creative energies to writing poems and stories which in addition to being published in journals and
magazines, have been collected in his two chapbooks, “Reflections & Other Musings” and “Harry &
Other Stories.” And now he has created “The Bastard’s Trilogy” anchored by the new novel “The
Dennis Roth is a teacher at heart. Since high school, he has shared his knowledge, serving as a
tutor of students in math and science, as an instructor and lecturer to architectural and engineering
students at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, and as a teacher of his
unique watercolor techniques to budding watercolorists.
On the side, Dennis Roth has learned Spanish and Italian to help him understand more fully the
cultures of Mexico and Italy during his months-long visits to those countries.
These broad and extensive experiences provide Dennis Roth the material to weave his imaginative
and thought-provoking writing, writing that is about life and living, its joys and sorrows, its thrills and
disappointments. Whether in his poems inspired by his struggle with depression or in his stories of
love and loss, we find he writes about reality with depth and conviction that can only be achieved by
someone of his vast experience. He inspires us as he has his hundreds of students to use our minds
to improve our souls.
