My only prior exposure to the Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mysteries series was listening to In the Blood which is Book 1 in the series almost 2 years ago. In the Blood was a disappointment. I recently decided to try Dying Games which is Book 6 in this series by Steve Robinson after seeing it was getting very positive reviews at Audible, Amazon, and Goodreads. I'm happy that I tried it because it is an outstanding suspense thriller as protagonist Jefferson Tayte is frustrated again and again by a serial killer who is playing games with him in the Washington DC area by giving him the opportunity to stop murders. The killer then moves the game to England where Tayte's fiancée lives and kidnaps her as he continues to play his game. After 3 months of searching for her Tayte teams up with his fraternal twin to try to find her. The suspense builds throughout. Brit Simon Vance, one of the very best, narrates superbly.
The six novels in this series are priced well below the cost of an Audible credit. The Audible and Kindle books are available free to listen to/read for Kindle Unlimited members. Simon Vance narrates all of the audio books in the series.

I've enjoyed listening to this series, JT is an affable guy, and maybe that's part of the problem. With this last book there seems to be a lot of carnage without the corresponding angst. More than once the plot seemed to be more contrived to show off genealogy techniques than to save a life. And, more than once, I found myself wondering why on earth they didn't just do the obvious thing. Still, it's a fun read (listen) and I'm sure I'll buy into the next book when it comes out.

This is the sixth book in the Jefferson Tayte saga it is also the best. The plot is fascinating. It is impossible to guess the next twist and there are lots o twists that enforce you to carry on reading just one more chapter. JT is such a good character that I hope the author will continue to write about him. Great stuff, Steve?

I've enjoyed this series and I have found that the characters and stories have grown stronger with each book. However, this book was extremely disappointing. The story was way over the top and was just plain silly. Hopefully, if there are more books in this series they return to their roots of being a good mystery.
