Publisher's Summary

From acclaimed author Steve Robinson comes a bold new Jefferson Tayte mystery.
On a foggy night in 1914, the ocean liner Empress of Ireland sank en route to England and now lies at the bottom of Canada’s St Lawrence River. The disaster saw a loss of life comparable to the Titanic and the Lusitania, and yet her tragedy has been forgotten.
When genealogist Jefferson Tayte is shown a locket belonging to one of the Empress' victims, a British admiral’s daughter named Alice Stilwell, he must travel to England to understand the course of events that led to her death.
Tayte is expert in tracking killers across centuries. In The Lost Empress, his unique talents draw him to one of the greatest tragedies in maritime history as he unravels the truth behind Alice’s death amidst a backdrop of pre-WWI espionage.
This is the fourth book in the Jefferson Tayte mystery series, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.

Not the author's best, but worth listening to

I found myself becoming extremely annoyed with the protagonist. All along the way there were many opportunities to "come clean." And to my mind Tate was pretty slow on the uptake about who was the guilty party. BUT, because I'm a history lover, it was still worth listening to.
I think Simon Vance usually does an amazing job but on this book it seemed he was trying too hard for Tate's American accent, like Ralph Fiennes in Maid in Manhattan.

Love this series of books

I have really been enjoying this set of audible books. The narrator is very good and the story line is a nice murder mystery. Can’t wait to listen to the last two books in the series as well as looking forward to more from this author.

BRILLIANT!!

I loved the past and present woven together to produce a very brilliant plot of historical intrigue and modern day technology. The narrator is great at doing the character voices so it's easy to listen too. I enjoy family history anyway and to have it used in a thriller makes a great story.

Series keeps getting better.

Another great addition to the series. The stories keep getting better and the main character, JT, is someone you can relate to - no superhero here just a guy doing his job. Narration is excellent. Cannot wait for the next installment.
