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.

Excellent

Loved the story and a great follow on from the other titles. The fact that the stories are based around real historical events adds to the enjoyment. More please

Glad I tried again

My first experience of this author and series didn’t quite work. I am so glad I came back and tried again.This story had me hooked from the word go. Train journeys , car journeys, washing up any excuse to carry on listening . The book travelled from the present to the past seamlessly and the narrator made the journey even better. The Story flowed and you very quickly became involved, the characters gained your sympathy or your dislike. I look forward to moving on to book 5

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.

Another Masterpiece

I love these JT novels. intriguing, mysterious and exciting. Every book is just as good as the first. knowing my own family skeletons makes all of the books plausible and a fun read.
