  Rex, age forty-four, brother of T.J., was under criminal investigation. A bank had failed and the FBI was making fierce inquiries. He owed more than seven million dollars. NowTroywas dead, Rex could stop worrying. He could pay his debts and play with his money.

  He spent the day with Hark Gettys, his lawyer. He wanted the money quickly, desperately, and he pressured Gettys to call Josh Stafford.

  "We have to see that will!" he shouted at Hark throughout the day. Hark calmed him with a long lunch and good wine. Amber, Rex's wife, dropped by and found them both drunk. She wasn't angry. She loved Rex more than ever now.

  Hark Gettys was excited. The old man was dead, and his crazy family was a lawyer's dream. This was his chance to start his own company and to make a lot of money. He wanted a long fight over the will, a fight that would make him famous and rich.

雷克斯,四十四岁,T.J的弟弟,正在接受刑事调查,一家银行破产了,FBI穷追不舍,他欠了七百多万美元。现在托伊死了,雷克斯可以不用再担心了。他可以还清债务并且去尽情享乐了。

他和他的律师哈克·盖提待在一起一整天。他不顾一切的想尽快拿到钱,催盖提给祝什打电话。“我们得看看那份遗嘱!”他对纠结了一天的哈克大吼大叫。哈克用了一顿超长的午餐和上等葡萄酒才使他平静下来。雷克斯的妻子艾玻顺路前来拜访,发现他们都喝醉了,但是她并没有生气。她从来没像现在这样爱过雷克斯。

哈克·盖提很激动。那个老人死了,他那些疯狂的家属们简直成就了律师的梦想。这是他成立自己的事务所并大把赚钱的好机会。他希望这遗嘱能引发一场漫长的争斗,那么这场官司就可以让他名利双收。
