“Waddell's second outstanding thriller (after The Blood Detective) mixes the genealogy of a family who can't escape their ancestors' deeds in Utah with today's Morman fundamentalist splinter groups. Featuring brilliant detection by the police, the crime scene investigators, and the genealogist... this is a breathless roller-coaster ride.” ―Library Journal (starred review)
“...solidly plotted...boasts a protagonist whose unusual profession gives the story an added element of intrigue: using genealogy to unlock the victim's past and explain a contemporary crime. A definite winner, and further proof that Nigel Barnes is going to be a strong series lead.” ―Booklist
