Lineages and Lies starts with the murder of a doctor whom Nick had an appointment with the night the man was killed. From there, the amateur sleuth and professional genealogist is thrown into a series of murders, and Nick discovers that a ship's manifest may hold the key to solving them. With thorough research and quick wit, Nick and Hawty delve into the secrets of the past to solve a case in the present.
Like Jackpot Blood, the first Fox novel I read, Lineages and Lies is just as delightfully suspenseful, a fun read. It is rare to find a protagonist with a disabled assistant, and Hawty's character adds humor and emotion to the story. I look forward to reading more from Jimmy Fox, a master of genealogical mysteries. Way to go, Jimmy!

Jimmy Fox has created a character who is just like you and me. He has issues and he lives on. The genealogy aspect is handled very well and I found the whole premise to be believable and entertaining. A little bit of mystery, a little more mayhem, and people you really like and dislike.
The beginning of the book is a tough read, but after a chapter or two, Fox finds his stride and gives readers a book that is quite good. In fact, I ended up enjoying it so much I had to force myself not to dive right into the next book. I have already purchased it, but I try not to read two books by the same author right in a row, Funny how writers never write fast enough for readers.
Thank you Jimmy Fox for making me glad I invested the time. Well done.

I ENJOYED THE BOOK PRIMARILY BECAUSE IT WAS LOCATED IN MY HOME TOWN OF NEW ORLEANS. WITHOUT GIVING ANY THING AWAY I THOUGHT THAT THE MOTIVE FOR THE MURDERS WAS NOT VERY BELIEVABLE.Published 2 months ago by Ejs

Although other people might like this book, I didn't much care for it. I found it rather tedious in that I had a difficult time concentrating on it.Published 7 months ago by Kaye Jordan
