Inspired by the author's own family history. To the Grave follows American genealogist, Jefferson Tayte, as he uncovers the disturbing consequences of a seemingly innocuous act in 1944 that was intended to keep a family together, but which ultimately tore it apart. His research exposes hidden pasts and the desperate measures some people will take to keep a secret. Sitting in a hotel room at gunpoint, facing an impossible decision, Tayte is forced to wonder how his latest assignment had come to this. Five days earlier, after a child's suitcase arrives unexpectedly at his client's home in Washington DC, Tayte embarks upon a journey that takes him back to England as he tries to unravel the story of Mena Lasseter - a girl whose life has become a family mystery.… (mere)

Still, lots of genealogical details and methodology to slog through, but all wrapped around a quite good mystery to solve. ( )

By no means a literary masterpiece like my previous book but I've given it the same rating because it is a fantastic read. Once into it I found it difficult to put down. The plot is well thought through and it is certainly easy to empathise with main subject of Jefferson Tayte's investigation. The author certainly combines his skill as a thriller writer with his passion foe genealogy. Very enjoyable. ( )

6/10: I wanted to enjoy this book as I love genealogy, and enjoy crime fiction. It's easy to read — I finished it in two sittings — and I did enjoy the first half or so. The pace was good, the characters interesting, and the interweaving on the contemporary investigation with the mystery itself worked well. Not everything was perfect - Tayte understood too much of British culture for an American in England, and asked too few questions. But the second half of the book rapidly degenerated into near farce. Gunmen begin charging around the country (which neither Tatye nor his British host seem to find the least bit surprising or disturbing) with a motive that's barely credible. It was a shame, because it wasn't necessary to introduce such drama when the human story was already developing nicely. ( )

Entertaining. ( )

As with all books in the Jefferson Tayte series, this is two stories in one: one telling of genealogist Tayte’s efforts to trace a lost ancestor for a client (which usually involves at least two murders, though Tayte himself has more lives than a several cats combined), and the other telling the story of that ancestor. I tend to find the latter more interesting than the former. Tayte is generally a rather annoying character, but the characters Steve Robinson creates for his historical stories are given much more depth. This is very much the case here, where the modern day story seems a little ill-thought and formulaic, (“damn, 75% in and there’s been no deaths, better kill a few people!”), while the sad story of a young girl, misunderstandings and a domineering mother has some characters with depth. I cared about Mena. I don’t really care about Tayte though! ( )
