Publisher's Summary

Morton Farrier, the esteemed English forensic genealogist, had cleared a space in his busy schedule to track down his own elusive father finally. But he is then presented with a case that challenges his research skills in his quest to find the killer of a woman murdered more than 180 years ago. 

Thoughts of his own family history are quickly and violently pushed to one side as Morton rushes to complete his investigation before other sinister elements succeed in derailing the case. 

This is the third book in the Morton Farrier genealogical crime mystery series, although it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.

Good plot, annoying protagonist

I liked the story here, and the narrator did a fine job, but oh, was it difficult to see protagonist Morton misbehave so badly at every turn! Protagonists don't have to be sympathetic, of course, but when he takes an unfounded dislike to the idea of his adoptive father's remarriage, opts not to tell his fiancee (a very capable police officer) when he falls foul of obviously-deadly thugs, and tops it all by going into reading rooms in archives and libraries WITHOUT MUTING HIS PHONE (clearly the worst crime of all for an academic {wry grin}), I had to wonder just who to root for! But I did appreciate the historical background and the nicely-tangled genealogical plot.

Fascinating story

I started out not liking this because there's a new narrator and I had gotten used to the voice from the previous books in the series. I eventually got over that, though, in part because the plot was so engaging. As I am sure is typical of other Americans, I had never heard of the America Ground in England. That made for a very interesting location on which to focus for this mystery. I was also very glad that this book moved Morton's personal story along as well. Content-wise, this is my favorite Morton Farrier book so far!

An excellent book, now onto the next in the series

I enjoyed this from start to finish. It gives enough clues to work parts out but still has surprises but you do not feel cheated by something totally outside the story being brought in at the end. The thread about Morton's own genealogy is also very good.
