About the Author

Kirsten Tranter is the daughter of poet John and literary agent Lyn Tranter. On the strength of The Legacy, her debut novel, she secured a six-figure, two-book deal with HarperCollins Australia.


[star]Tranter's debut, well received in her native Australia, is an intriguing blend of mystery, romance about unrequited love, bildungsroman, and homage to Henry James's Portrait of a Lady. The novel begins one year after 9/11 and Ingrid's death in the World Trade Center. Unable to travel because of a congenital heart condition, Ingrid's grieving cousin Ralph asks Julia Alpers to investigate Ingrid's New York life. Years earlier at university in Sydney, Julia had formed a close friendship with Ralph and the beautiful, brilliant, and wealthy Ingrid, a true golden girl.ÅTraveling to Manhattan, Julia contacts Ingrid's friends and family and gradually uncovers the details of Ingrid's abusive marriage to older, sophisticated Gil Grey. In examining Ingrid's life, Julia remembers her own complicated college relationships and realizes that the past has overshadowed her present-and future-life. Verdict Fans of literary mysteries will enjoy this intricate, fascinating, and original novel. Highly recommended.-Cheryl L. Conway, Univ. of Arkansas Libs., Fayetteville (c) Copyright 2010.
