According to The Daily Beast, author Patricia Cornwell is suing her accountants and business advisers — Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP — claiming they mishandled their accounts and caused her to lose $40 million. Cornwell’s attorney told the Beast, “Patricia has found this process to be very distracting and upsetting, but I think she has some level of comfort knowing that the lawsuit has been filed and is now in the hands of the court.” Cornwell filed the complaint in Boston federal court.
