In the Blood (A Genealogical Crime Mystery #1)

In the Blood (A Genealogical Crime Mystery #1)In the Blood by Steve Robinson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book immensely. It was an interesting historical puzzle which seemed to have a bit of James Bond in the genealogy parts. Genealogist usually deal with people who are dead, but not at finding them at their feet! The assignment seems simple enough. A client would like to give a present to his wife and he hired Jefferson Tayte to find the English ancestors of his wife's family. Unfortunately, someone desperately wants to hide that information and is willing to kill to protect it. From the time Tayte sets foot on English soil, someone is following in his footsteps determined that he will not succeed.

I also love genealogy and I've picked up a few hints from JT as I have followed his research. Some aids are my old friends, but a few are new to me. At times I wish I had the money to hire JT myself! This book is a treat and I know I'll be reading the rest of Steve Robinson's books.
