From the first chapter I was captivated and wanted to keep reading to find out what was to happen next. During the day I found my mind wandering to what I had read. The writer had the main character, Morton, using genealogical techniques to solve the different mysteries he encountered. I liked the way he delved into the different characters to make them come to life; sometimes I would forget I was not reading about real people and their lives. Some of the plots centered on murder, suicide, relationships, war and a deep dark family secret.
As I have read books in the past, I can usually tell almost from the beginning how it will probably end. That is not the case in this crime mystery. Each chapter, with its twists and turns, gave me new clues and had me trying to figure out the puzzle that Morton was trying to solve. The use of historical events was interwoven into the story lines.
While I do a lot of genealogical research and reading, I also like to read crime mysteries. I really enjoyed reading this book as it put both of them together in one book sprinkled with a bit of forensic genealogy. I was excited to learn the author is working on another book!
I look forward to reading more from Nathan Dylan Goodwin and recommend this book as an exciting suspenseful read. The author uses his personal genealogical experiences in his story lines that adds the extra bonus to anyone who enjoys the family history research.
