Books on Monday: In the blood (a genealogical mystery)

Here is a book that I have just finished reading

In the Blood (Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mystery Book 1)

by Steve Robinson

Two hundred years ago a loyalist family fled to England to escape the American War of Independence and seemingly vanished into thin air. American genealogist Jefferson Tayte is hired to find out what happened, but it soon becomes apparent that a calculated killer is out to stop him.

In the Blood combines a centuries-old mystery with a present-day thriller that brings two people from opposite sides of the Atlantic together to uncover a series of carefully hidden crimes. Tayte’s research centres around the tragic life of a young Cornish girl, a writing box, and the discovery of a dark secret that he believes will lead him to the family he is looking for. Trouble is, someone else is looking for the same answers and will stop at nothing to find them.

In the Blood is the first book in the Jefferson Tayte mystery series.

Revised edition: Previously published as part of the Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mystery series, this edition of In the Blood includes editorial revisions.

“I could not put this one down until I finished, (at about 3:20 a.m. this morning). Tayte won my heart as a vulnerable protagonist who surprised himself with his determination and grit. The combination of genealogy research, heavenly setting, believable, witty dialogue and cliff-hanging action created one bang-up read. ” –Amazon reader review

I have over the years read many “genealogical mysteries” books. They have been of varied quality. I think In the blood is a good book as it in addition to the genealogy angel also adds the ingredients we expect from a thriller. I will definitely read more of Steve Robinson’s books.
