This one has been sitting on my Kindle for a while now, as have the others in the series, having picked it up believing the combination of family history and crime could make for a novel take on the genre, which it certainly did. he basic premise is that Jefferson Tayte, a professional genealogist, is sent from the States to the UK to investigate his client’s past. Whilst here, that past comes to meet him as it quickly becomes clear that someone doesn’t want it unearthed and is prepared to use any means to ensure this. It’s a quick, pacey read. One tip I gleaned elsewhere was to keep a pen and paper handy to write the family tree on as it emerged – I wish I had done that. Would have made it easier to follow and rewarding as clues emerged. The style of writing does perhaps betray occasionally that this is a first novel, but the plot and content means this isn’t a deal breaker at all. I look forward to seeing how the character and books develop over the rest in the line.
