Publisher's summary

From acclaimed British author Nathan Dylan Goodwin comes this exciting new genealogical crime mystery, featuring the redoubtable forensic genealogist, Morton Farrier.

When Morton is called upon by Ray Mercer to investigate the 1911 disappearance of his great aunt, a housemaid working in a large Edwardian country house, he has no idea of the perilous journey into the past that he is about to make. Morton must use his not inconsiderable genealogical skills to solve the mystery of Mary Mercer’s disappearance, in the face of the dangers posed by those others who are determined to end his investigation at any cost.

This is the second book in the Morton Farrier genealogical crime mystery series, although it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.

How Do You Figure Out the past? Forensic Genealogy

This is a most wonderful, intriguing and hard to put down story. I'm amazed at how well Mr Goodwin weaves and connects the past with the future. The plot didn't waver and was completely understandable for a non- genealogy person to learn from and to follow!! My latest mission is to read every book written by this author!! It's been a suspenseful yet interesting journey. I appreciate the work and tenacity of Morton Farrier as he resolves his client's request, even at his own peril. I believe this series gets better and better as you read each volume. Thank you Mr Goodwin for such a beautiful, fulfilling, and enjoyable journey. It's been a wonderfully worthwhile use of my time. I feel like I've been on vacation once I complete each book!!And I have learned a lot about the ins and outs of genealogy research!! Your books put together two of the things I enjoy most ~ genealogy and mysteries. You have a new follower in me. And I look forward to your next book on the life and times of Morton Farrier!!
