Driven by the irony of being a genealogist who doesn't know who his own parents are, JeffersonTayte soon finds that this new assignment shares a stark similarity to his own struggle. Someone has gone to great lengths to erase an entire family bloodline from recorded history and he's not going home until he's found out why. After all, if he's not good enough to find this family, how can he ever expect to be good enough to someday find his own? Set in Cornwall, England, past and present, Tayte's research centres around the tragic life of a young Cornish girl, a writing box, and the discovery of a dark family secret that he believes will lead him to the family he is looking for. Trouble is, someone else is looking for the same answers and they will stop at nothing to find them.… (mere)

As Salieri said in the movie Amadeus "too many notes, Mozart". At least they had scores to read. No such luck in Robinson's book. The ancestry is overwhelming with no genealogical charts provided. Otherwise, a good story but I found myself fanning through the relentless research. ( )

Really enjoyed this and by the end I could not put it down; I just had to know how things were going to turn out. Generally it is very well written, with an excellent plot. The only jarring notes are towards the beginning when author inserts some family history techniques in a slightly clumsy way-but I shall certainly be picking up the rest of the series. One reviewer mentioned that Steve Robinson reminded them of Robert Goddard at his best (the early novels) and I absolutely agree. ( )

It took me a little bit to get into this book, but after I did, I was really interested. It goes back and forth between present and past. There is a cover up and mystery in both times. Then you find out that they are connected and that poking around trying to find answers is deadly. It does a good job with the suspense, and it tells a good story. The main guy is believable. He's in these life or death situations, and he's all like what am I doing I'm just a genealogist, instead of coming off as expert in everything mentally and physically. ( )

Poor old Jefferson Tayte: the spelling of his surname is about as interesting as he gets. He's a genealogist who doesn't know his father, which sounds interesting, but no, that's about it. Perhaps this is a mystery to be unravelled over a long series of books, so I don't suppose I'll ever know the truth. Oh, and he has a fear of flying. But this doesn't really add up to character.

Tayte, too, lives in a world of such little atmosphere: America, England, eighteenth-nineteenth-twentieth century, his own or the locals' angle: all in the same, rather dull voice. No diaries, letters. I could really only start to enjoy the story when the page was slightly enlivened by dialogue, but this was too seldom. Jefferson needs a Watson. On his own, he just plods.

The narrative (I nearly said 'action'!) switches between modern Cornwall, where JT is researching a 100-year old family secret, and the early 1800s, where we witness its origins. Back in the present day, the family in question has further shady dealings. What's more, Tayte is dogged by rivalry with an upstart rival genealogist ...

Lots to be getting on with, then: it might have been very good.

But it wasn't. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I was expecting a genealogical mystery to be all tea and crumpets, but this was action packed. I like the fact that the protagonist is not a tough guy, but he performs pretty well in tough situations when he has to. I'm looking forward to reading more in the series! ( )
