'Do you remember Stieg Larsson’s first book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? Yep it was that good and if you liked the Millennium series then you’ll like this series too…In the Blood also reminded me of a Sherlock Homes adventure.’ —LifeInMichigan.com
‘I couldn’t put this book down, and I read it in a couple of days.’ —GenealogyUK.com
Steve Robinson drew upon his own family history for inspiration when he imagined the life and quest of his genealogist-hero, Jefferson Tayte. The talented London-based crime writer, who was first published at age 16, always wondered about his own maternal grandfather – ‘He was an American GI billeted in England during the Second World War,’ Robinson says. ‘A few years after the war ended he went back to America, leaving a young family behind and, to my knowledge, no further contact was made. I traced him to Los Angeles through his 1943 enlistment record and discovered that he was born in Arkansas…’
Robinson cites crime writing and genealogy as ardent hobbies – a passion that is readily apparent in his work.
