The Heirs is comparable to Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney's The Nest. In the time of loss following the Falkes' Father's death, Susan Rieger explores the past and present lives of the Falkes family. Less about money, as the family already possesses wealth, and more about exploiting double lives and intricate family ties, The Heirs is a hooking read that has you asking for more until the close, specifically, more about what truly happened in the past. Less about drama and family feuds, Rieger slowly reveals the secrets held by the Mother and Father figures so dear to the grown Falkes children.
