Picked this book up by chance and I am so glad I did. The genealogy aspect of it works well in the investigation of the murder. After the first few pages I was hooked.

One of those books you take with you where ever you go in case you have a couple of minutes to keep reading it.

Fantastically plotted, well researched and beautifully written - cannot recommend highly enough.
