    " This is totally my type of book. Perfect english crime novel with the slight variation on a theme that the main character traces current crimes back through ancestoral records to find their roots in the past. "

    " I still love the concept--genealogist solves mysteries through research, but this plot was too ridiculous even for me. Also numerous little lapses really irritated me--such as having a resident of a small town in Utah talking about something being 40 kilometers away. Kilometers? Sorry, despite all the educational attempts, people in the US still talk about miles. Also, nonsense like this: "More than one and a half billion of these names had been captured on roll after roll of microfilm....These names were searchable on an online database." I wish. SOME of those names are online. And then: "He asked but was assured the database was usually very accurate." Seriously? When a good part of the FamilySearch data is still user-submitted, with no sources given? Although I suppose a Family History Center volunteer might have said that. Also, the idea that the death of 18 people in a fire would be reported in only ONE newspaper (of which only one copy of the relevant issue/s existed) is just ludicrous. Finally, a trained police officer entering someone's apartment with no search warrant and no back-up, not knowing what he might find, seems a little far-fetched, but I'm not an expert on London police procedure. "

    " Genealogy, Mormons and missing girls. I don;t know it was missing something, quick read but not very satisfying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 1/30/2014

    " An excellent followup to The Blood Detective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary G. | 1/28/2014

    " This was a wonderful read. The characters were even more vivid and memoriable in the second effort. Nigel, Heather and Grant make quite the team. In addition, the tale revenge was plausible and exciting. The story was mix of a modern police procedural and history. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 1/23/2014

    " Although this was an enjoyable book, I wouldn't say that I found it quite as good as the first one. The plot wore a little thin in places and I found it a bit predictable. But, as with his first in this series, well written and full of suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seonaid Lewis | 1/19/2014

    " This is a second in a series about a professional genealogist who is recruited by the police to help solve crime. It's a cracking read and I'm now completely addicted. Can't wait for book 3! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celia | 1/4/2014

    " I liked this book even more than his last. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/1/2014

    " If you like genealogy mysteries, then this is a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gemma | 12/19/2013

    " I really enjoyed this one, was that ending an opening for a third, let's hope so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 12/14/2013

    " Though not the most tightly plotted of books, by which I mean I had to go back and re-read the exposition of the plot a few times to figure out what was going on, I adore this series. Well-drawn characters with honorable traits and flaws, and always engaging bits of history. Can't wait for more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elle Corrigan | 9/5/2013

    " Like Blood detective, lots of twist and clues to follow, a good read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tinglefish | 9/4/2013

    " The second novel in this series was a lot better as it lost some of the annoyances from the first, namely the lecturing style and telegraphed plot. Still, it was a remarkably unsatisfying end as the fire and Liberty were not fully explored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 7/19/2013

    " This one was quite good as well, altho I liked the first one a bit better. Nice use of history effecting the present once again to bring back the geneaologist. Worth reading but read The Blood Detective first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 5/10/2013

    " This is the first mystery to have a protagonist that is a genealogist to get the genealogist right. Even though we have some of the same resources he used, it was fun to see his research from an English perspective. To top it off it was a good mystery, too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audrey | 2/6/2013

    " Better than the first, I loved it, please tell me there is a third ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Blackstock | 1/11/2013

    " Excellently written , can't wait for more from this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian | 11/13/2012

    " Enyoyable murder mystery. This series takes a fresh approach to the crime novel by featuring a genealogist as one its protagonists. I can't help wondering however how long the series can last without the plots starting to become contrived. But maybe Mr Waddell will surprise me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 9/2/2012

    " An interesting mystery with one of the main characters being a genealogist. It takes place in England and Utah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Kay | 8/9/2010

    " Murders & kidnappings in modern day UK are the result of events in 1890 in the US. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 7/25/2010

    " Another in a series about a genealogist who helps the police solve crimes by studying family history. "

    " Genealogy, psycho-thriller, a detective mystery . . . Waddell covers all the bases with this one, and does them well.
    Ending simply screams for another to follow. I'm already anticipating what's to come. "
