Publisher's Summary

July 8, 1921. Ireland. A British Officer is shot dead on a remote hillside south of Dublin.
November 22, 2015. United Kingdom. Former police detective Jayne Sinclair, now working as a genealogical investigator, receives a phone call from an adopted American billionaire asking her to discover the identity of his real father.
How are the two events linked? Jayne Sinclair has only three clues to help her: a photocopied birth certificate, a stolen book, and an old photograph. And it soon becomes apparent somebody else is on the trail of the mystery: a killer who will stop at nothing to prevent Jayne discovering the secret hidden in the past.

Superb writer Gripping storyline

This is an excellent mystery of intrigue, danger and emotional ties to the past.
Historically the story encompasses England, Ireland and the U.S. Couldn't stop listening and was engrossed until the end.

Unpredictable, well written.

I really enjoyed the story. I would probably have enjoyed it more with a different narrator. Lucy Raynor's performance is technically perfect but her reading has a sing-songy quality that I find rather grating. I'm sure those very inflections make her popular with others. Just a matter of personal taste.
