From Publishers Weekly

British author Sampson (Daughters of Tintagel) introduces Suzie Loosemore Fewings, a keen family genealogist, in the engaging first in a new series. Suzie, a married mother of two, visits local parishes and libraries to discover her ancestors. When she uncovers a link with a 17th-century Southcombe churchwarden, Thomas Loosemore, which also happens to be the name of her 17-year-old son, Suzie is ecstatic. Her happiness is tempered, however, by learning Thomas Loosemore was involved in a clergyman's death just as her own son, Tom, is questioned by the police about a missing 16-year-old girl, Julie Samuel, whom Tom had briefly gone out with. Suzie soon becomes immersed in murder mysteries past and present with devastating consequences for her family. Sampson deftly weaves historic and modern-day crimes in a cerebral yet exciting tale of guilt, innocence and circumstance. (Sept.)

Suzy Fewings is an avid genealogical researcher, and she is thrilled when she discovers that one of her ancestors, one Thomas Loosemore, a church warden in the sixteenth century, had the same name as her son, Tom. But the discovery loses its fascination when further research reveals that Loosemore was most likely a murderer. Her research into the past takes a backseat, however, when a modern-day murder takes place. A 16-year-old local girl, Julie Samuel, is found brutally slain, her body left in a drainage ditch. Even more horrifying is the fact that Tom, who dated Julie in the weeks before her murder, suddenly becomes a suspect in the investigation. Shocked, Suzy begins to wonder if the sixteenth-century Thomas Loosemore could have passed down a curse to her own Tom. As the investigation progresses, Suzy's happy family begins to unravel, as Suzy and her husband think the unthinkable--that Tom is Julie's killer. The conclusion is as surprising as it is tragic. A gripping story and a believable depiction of how a family can be destroyed by guilt and doubt make this a fine read for crime fans. --Booklist, 1st August 2009 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
