The authentic book on Hughes 29 Dec. 2001
By "lesleyanna" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a jewel for Hughes aficionados. The author, Suzanne Finstad, is a lawyer who was the lead investigator appointed by the probate court to locate the heirs to Howard Hughes' millions.
Finstad spent five years on the probate case and had access to all of Hughes's private documents, from childhood letters to secret tape-recordings to his autopsy report, in addition to deposition testimony from his wives, girlfriends, business associates, etc. This book came out in 1984, 16 years before the ... book on Hughes, which purports to be the first Hughes biography to utilize his probate records.
HEIR NOT APPARENT is an insider's account of Hughes's life, as well as a spellbinding detective story, a byzantine tale of greed, genealogy, Hollywood, and lost dreams.

Wrong people got the money! 8 April 2002
By Melaina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Great mystery! This book, by Suzanne Finstad, has it all - a thorough biography of legendary recluse Howard Hughes and a Rubik's Cube of plot twists and turns in a fascinating quest to unravel who will win the race to claim the billionaire's fortune. If this were a movie, and it should be, it would be a combination of "Citizen Kane" and "Chinatown!"

Best Genealogy mystery! 5 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book within a year of it's publication. For any genealogy enthusiast, this is the best non-fiction you can get. It has it all - lost wills, secret marriages, mystery children, stolen fortunes. Truth is always stranger than fiction! A great read, and my favorite non-fiction book. And very well written.
