Publisher's Summary

A curiously dated child’s suitcase arrives, unannounced and unexplained, in a modern-day Washington suburb. A week later, American genealogist Jefferson Tayte is sitting in an English hotel room, staring at the wrong end of a loaded gun.
In his latest journey into the past, Tayte lands in wartime Leicestershire, England. The genealogist had hoped simply to reunite his client with the birth mother she had never met, having no idea she had been adopted. Instead, he uncovers the tale of a young girl and an American serviceman from the US 82nd Airborne, and a stolen wartime love affair that went tragically wrong.
With To the Grave, Steve Robinson confirms his status as a master of the taut and delicately constructed historical thriller.
This is the second audiobook in the Jefferson Tayte mystery series, which begins with In the Blood but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.

Worthwhile listen!

Totally absorbing story. A woman in her early sixties learns she was adopted. She hires a genealogist to discover her past. The story of her parent's past runs in parallel chapters with the genealogist current investigation. Very engaging! Totally enjoyable!

After this first listen, in the Jefferson Tayte series, I enjoyed it so much, I purchased another in the series.

sad but true

The reality of social morals, standing and expectations of war weary England are on full display in this compelling, page turner. The second on the series does not disappoint, although, I did shed a tear.

Compelling mystery

Would you listen to To the Grave again? Why?

I would listen to it again. I found it absolutely compelling and just could not switch it off. Listened to it in one day.

What was one of the most memorable moments of To the Grave?

When it was revealed that Mena had been raped after keeping us guessing

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The scene with JT and Eliza and Mr Wells when it was revealed that although Mena had had an unhappy life at least she knew some happiness in her final years.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely. Luckily I was on leave.

Any additional comments?

I intend to recommend this book to my family and friends. I enjoyed it so much more than 'In the Blood' and sincerely hope there will be more as good as this one from Steve Robinson.

Superb

I loved this book and it had me totally engrossed to the last when all the questions were answered. It was so very sad and as I got to the end the tears were brimming. The narrator did an excellent job. I would definitely read more by Steve Robinson.
