THE CALL OF THE WYLDES is a murder mystery which explores how far people might stray to protect what they have, recover what they've lost or obtain what they want. It is like "Succession" but with the murder of a key family member. The Wyldes are a New York family of wealth and distinction, with a father rumored to be the next Secretary of the Treasury, a beautiful, socially prominent mother and three adult children. But secrets and turmoil roil beneath the surface, and after she hires a personal assistant and their relationship deepens, a series of events are triggered which ultimately lead to the wife's murder. Everyone in her immediate sphere has a motive of one kind or another (greed, need, envy, revenge, love or hatred, to name a few) and the unfolding story will keep you guessing about the killer's identity until the end....
