Publisher's Summary

Morton Farrier was no longer at the top of his game. His forensic genealogy career was faltering and he was refusing to accept any new cases, preferring instead to concentrate on locating his own elusive biological father. Yet, when a particular case presents itself, that of finding the family of a woman abandoned in the midst of the Battle of Britain, Morton is compelled to help her to unravel her past. Using all of his genealogical skills, he soon discovers that the case is connected to The Spyglass File; a secretive document which throws up links which threaten to disturb the wrongdoings of others, who would rather its contents, as well as their actions, remain hidden forever. This is the fourth book in the Morton Farrier genealogical crime mystery series, although it can be enjoyed as a standalone story.

A very good book

I've dabbled in geneaology. It is fascinating so the summary of this book made sense. If you enjoy a good mystery, interesting characters and places, the role of women in the British armed forces together with a touch of wisdom gained with the passage of time... you will like this.

Wonderful. and Exciting

This is a wonderful and exciting book. I couldn't turn it off. The historical aspects woven into the plot added so much intrigue and suspense and held my attention completely throughout the book. I am fascinated with Mr Goodwin's attention to details. I felt as though I was living the story as I was listening to it. The narration of the book is phenomenal and adds such creativity to the story. I have read almost all of this writer's works and have been spellbound with each one. I'm so happy Morton married the woman of his dreams. What a beautiful ending to the story!!

Another Fantastic Story

I really enjoy this series of books. I only wish all of Nathan Dylan Goodwin’s books were in audio format, as my downtime to “read” is limited. I anticipate every dog walk with eagerness to further progress in hearing the unraveling of each genealogical tale!

Genealogical mystery

Good mystery story well written with actual facts which could make you investigate the time and places more . Which I did on a recent visit to Folkestone and surrounding areas. A page turner.

Interesting take on wartime life

I have an interest in genealogy and found this book fascinating, a little let down by the reader who has a pleasant reading voice but some of his pronunciation is very suspect and becomes a bit jarring. Overall though a good book.

An intriguing story, extremely well told.

This is the fourth full length novel featuring Morton Farrier, forensic genealogist. The books in this series all exlpore an historical mystery while Morton also researches his own genealogical background.

This is an intriguing story, extremely well told.

A captivating blend of WWII intrigue, family secrets and investigative mystery fiction, this is yet another riveting installment in a most excellent series.
