As dawn breaks over London, the body of a young man is discovered in a windswept Notting Hill churchyard. The killer has left Detective Chief Inspector Grant Foster and his team a grisly, cryptic clue...

However it's not until the clue is handed to Nigel Barnes, a specialist in compiling family trees, that the full message becomes spine-chillingly clear. For it leads Barnes back more than one hundred years - to the victim of a demented Victorian serial killer. When a second body is discovered Foster needs Barnes's skills more than ever, because the murderer's clues appear to run along the tangled bloodlines that lie between 1879 and the present day. If Barnes is right about his blood-history, the killing spree has only just begun... Download and start listening now!

    " Combine a good mystery with genealogical research and I am totally hooked. This first in a series introduces genealogist Nigel Barnes as he helps solve a series of brutal murders with a link to the past. As he traces ancestors and descendants to find a link, the police are hoping to solve the crimes as soon as they can. Barnes and the police are not only trying to find the killer, but they want to figure out who might be the next victim. And how is the killer able to stay one step ahead of the police? The best thing about this book is that it is relatively clean, and I enjoyed the family history angle. "

    " An enjoyable mystery story with a touch of genealogy "

    " It read like a genealogist trying to enthuse the public about his interests through the medium of a crime novel. Which it is. And that's not necessarily a bad thing except that it felt like a lecture on the topic and that distracted from the story. The story was also underwhelming as the clues and hence plot were easy to spot so sadly there were no surprises, and this from someone who never normally guesses the murderer. So overall an interesting read but lacking in the story department. Hopefully the second one improves on that. "
