Summary

Peter Coldrick had no past; that was the conclusion drawn by years of personal and professional research. Then he employed the services of one Morton Farrier, forensic genealogist - a stubborn, determined man who uses whatever means necessary to uncover the past.
With the Coldrick Case, Morton faces his toughest and most dangerous assignment yet, where all of his investigative and genealogical skills are put to the test. However, others are also interested in the Coldrick family, people who will stop at nothing, including murder, to hide the past.
As Morton begins to unearth his client's mysterious past, he is forced to confront his own family's dark history, a history which he knows little about.

Interesting new genre

I don't think the narration (performance) did this story justice. Jonathan Ip has a very deep voice, and the end parts of sentences were often a bit garbled. Also replacement sentences were input into his narration and these were quieter than his voice. (& his female voices were quieter than the 'hero' Morton Farrier). All in all it was possible to miss key words & this was frustrating.
Having said that, the story did race along and I was interested to hear the denouement.

Disappointing

I’m a genealogist so I was really looking forward to this book. The genealogy research portions of the book were quite believable and explained well. However the two main characters, purported to be in a long term relationship, were so lacking in emotion or humor that it was difficult imagine them as a couple. The narrator added to the problem with his flat unemotional voice. The very convoluted plot was difficult to follow. I actually listened to the last couple of chapters twice to see if i’d missed something. After all was done I spent some time wondering why on earth any upper class British family would be ruthlessly killing people to cover up the Nazi sympathizer leanings of the family from World War II - over 80 years ago? What’s more they conveniently left a complete written file of their involvement sitting on an open shelf in their library?

I love the genealogy involvement and the quality of the writing but the characters need more development and more humanity. The plots need more believability and they need a new narrator.

Not crazy about the main character

I thought the story was pretty good, and I liked most of the characters, but I really wanted to give Morton a slap upside the head. What a self-pitying prat. I'm not adopted, but honestly, it seemed like the dad and the brother wanted nothing more than to love this guy and he did everything to put them at a distance. Either explain his problem with them better, or leave off that part. It wasn't necessary to the story.
