Two hundred years ago a loyalist family fled to England to escape the American War of Independence and seemingly vanished into thin air. American genealogist Jefferson Tayte is hired to find out what happened, but it soon becomes apparent that a calculated killer is out to stop him.
In the Blood combines a centuries-old mystery with a present-day thriller that brings two people from opposite sides of the Atlantic together to uncover a series of carefully hidden crimes. Tayte's research centres around the tragic life of a young Cornish girl, a writing box, and the discovery of a dark secret that he believes will lead him to the family he is looking for. Trouble is, someone else is looking for the same answers and will stop at nothing to find them. In the Blood is the first in the Jefferson Tayte mystery series.

New Twist on old fashion mystery
I didn't remember ordering this, I think it may have been a pre-order or something so I had no idea what to expect. The writing in this novel was SO good. I got the whisper sync for voice so I started reading the book first, I was taken aback by the beautiful writing. Started listening (time) and the plot moved along wonderfully, plenty of action. It was a great mystery.
