There are many fine mysteries that feature a religion as an integral part of the plot. Examples are Faye Kellerman's series featuring Judaism, Sister Carol Anne O"Marie's series featuring Sister Mary Helen, a Catholic nun, and Ralph McInery's Father Dowling mysteries that were made into a TV series. These series have disclosure of the religious component in their book descriptions so the reader can make an informed decision.

There was no warning that this is a Mormon or Latter Day Saints religious book. Many people are interested in family history without being Mormon. If you are interested in genealogy based mysteries without a religious component the Tori O'Shea series by Rett MacPherson is well written.

This book, Poisoned Pedigree, did not have a viable plot. A Celtic singer asks the two main characters to investigate her "bad blood." The author repeatedly states that there is no such thing as "bad blood" yet the two main characters depart for a rural town to investigate the singer's family history anyway. The two main characters do not obtain basic information to investigate the singer's family history from the singer but instead seem to focus on trying to show how the non-LDS people in the town are bad.

This is the "New Edition" which means it is the digital edition of something that was only available in a hard copy version previously.

I am appalled that the religious content was not disclosed before purchase. I would have still bought the book as I have enjoyed other mysteries with a religious focus. However, the terrible writing in this book makes this a do not recommend purchase.

I am never disappointed with the genealogy mysteries of G. G. Vandagriff. I have read the entire series and could barely put the reader down. One book follows another so you know the characters and what has happened in the past - but even if this is your first book, you can jump right in and follow the intrique. Love it!

Yet another great genealogical mystery. It is amazing what records can reveal, the secret is basically knowing where to look. This author has the ability to keep you guessing, with so many twists and turns. I love the interaction with the main characters. I look forward to more of the same.

The writing kept me guessing at the outcome. I enjoyed the book very much. It had some good guidance for new genealogist about where to find more information. I have researched for years, but did not know about the dating/timing of twins births.

loved the book, however on the kindle edition the pedigree printout was too small for me to read. It is necessary at times to refer to it to stay in sync with the story.

The plot was interesting enough that I kept turning the pages. I'm now into the third book in the series and have purchase the other two.
