    Two hundred years ago a loyalist family fled to England to escape the American War of Independence and seemingly vanished into thin air. American genealogist Jefferson Tayte is hired to find out what happened, but it soon becomes apparent that a calculated killer is out to stop him.

    Getting into this book was difficult for me.

    In the Blood is probably better than 2 stars, but the slow start combined with the terrible narration make the audiobook a loser. The story actually ..Show More »

    A curiously dated child’s suitcase arrives, unannounced and unexplained, in a modern-day Washington suburb. A week later, American genealogist Jefferson Tayte is sitting in an English hotel room, staring at the wrong end of a loaded gun. In his latest journey into the past, Tayte lands in wartime Leicestershire, England. The genealogist had hoped simply to reunite his client with the birth mother she had never met, having no idea she had been adopted.

    Great WWII Story of Romance, Love, Loss, Lies

    This is another terrific mystery/history story. It seemed so real even though you know it is taking place in 1944. A family torn apart by secrets wi..Show More »

    Decent read

    I can see why people like this series. It's an interesting way to weave historical events into a novel. Shamefully, I hadn't heard of the Empress of I..Show More »

    Jefferson Tayte is good at finding people who don't want to be found. For years he has followed faint genealogical trails to reunite families - and uncover long-hidden secrets. But Tayte is a loner, a man with no ties of his own; his true identity is the most elusive case of his career. But that could all be about to change. Now Tayte has in his possession the beginnings of a new trail - clues his late mentor had started to gather - that might at last lead to his own family.
