I have mixed feelings about this book. One one hand, it was a riveting plot. Genealogist Morton Farrier is hired to unearch his client's family history. Days later, the client is found dead and Morton sets out to finish the job.
The problem I had with this book was that there was too much action; it became formulaic. Morton finds a clue, Morton gets attacked, Morton has to start over and finds another clue, Morton's house blows up, etc etc. The action became a way to pad the plot into filling a book. The action was also a little too Hollywood-y for my taste, not plausible in the least.
So I'll leave this book rated just....ok. Promising, but not great.
