Publisher's Summary

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. With Professor Jean Summer, his partner in genealogical sleuthing, he travels to Munich to pick up the scent. But the hunt takes them deep into dangerous territory: the sinister secrets of World War II Germany, and those who must keep them buried at any cost.

When their investigations threaten to undermine a fascist organisation, Tayte and Summer know time is running out. Can they find their way to the dark heart of a deadly history before they become its latest victims?

Timley

Steve Robinson has taken his subject to a literary best. His story telling hits the mark. He has taken Jefferson Tate to a timely and relevant place. The social impact of dealing with Germany world war II and the descendents of war. He never evades the monstrosity of that war and weaves a challenging mystery that keeps you on your toes and guessing. When the mystery incl u does modern crimes it holds you. This book has historical thought provoking impact.

Love all these books

In love all the Jefferson Tayte books but this was the best so far. Wonderful story line, kept on the edge of your seat for what would happen next. Can't wait for the next book. Please keep them coming.

Simon Vance is the best at reading these stories and makes them all come to life. Thanks

Jefferson Researches His Story

After 4 novels where Jefferson does genealogical research for others, he finally gets to his story. Like the other stories this one is riveting! Can't wait for the next installment! Particularly given how this one ends! Simon Vance is the perfect narrator for the story.

Best yet!

Superb read and suspenseful to the end. Not being up on the history so cannot say how much is fact and how much is fiction I still found it extremely believable either way! A great twist at the end I did not expect. Looking forward to the next Jefferson Tate mystery. Get writing, Mr. Robinson!

Hard to Follow

The storyline was hard to follow with the difficult names and the accurate German pronunciation. I may have to try and listen to this again as several plot lines escaped me and left me
Puzzled. I enjoy this series but this was my least favorite so far even though (spoiler alert) Tate comes
To some
Conclusion as to his origins).

JT won't quit!

I love that Professor Summers is back and their relationship is on track. We are finally delving into the question of JTs' origins . He is going to leave no stone unturned in his dogged approach to get his answers. An excellent mystery, loads of lying dangerous villains and the answers we have been waiting for.

Addictive

Had reservations about purchasing this book but was pleasantly surprised! The story was great & loved the switching between 1945 & present day. This book was not at all what I expected (although it is the first book I've bought of this author) and will definitely be trying another.

Another Brilliant Story!!!

A brilliant descriptive story of WW2 in Nazi Germany! The links to JT's past and present are an amazing, interwoven puzzle. Simon Vance is a wonderful narrator and very gifted at doing the character voices. Easy to follow 'who's who'.
