    Another excellent book in Steve Robinson's Jefferson Tayte series In this one JT finds himself in the English Midlands looking for a girl who disappeared during WW2 Mena Lasseter had her entire life ahead of her yet she just disappeared and even her family have no clue as to what happened to her As JT works his way through the clues he finds that good intentions and misunderstandings can have serious conseuences and can rip whole families apart So what happened to Mena? You'll just have to read this book to find outI did find this book started a little slowly then it started to pick up in the middle before it goes hurtling to the final conclusion It's an all too realistic story and I'm sure many similar tales have come out of the war years This is proving to be a really good series and I'm sure I'll be reading the next installment soon Recommended to all lovers of historical mysteries

    I have just put my Kindle down after finishing this book and there are tears running down my face Very rarely does a book touch me the way this one hasI thoroughly enjoyed Steve Robinson's first book 'In The Blood' so was very excited when the seuel came out I was not disaapointed and in fact feel that this one is even stronger than the first oneThe character of Mena is absolutely wonderful and I felt for her every step along this journey Her story is a heartbreaking one and a story that will stay with me for a long time to comeAs for JT I fell in love with his character all over again and I cannot wait to read about him and his adventures I am hoping that we get to find out some of his family history along the way as he discovers those of others

    I really enjoy these genealogical mysteries and in fact after reading the first one I went and bought the rest There is an extraordinary amount of research handled very well by the author and the hero Jefferson is a great characterI would note though that the main character is from the USA and the writer is British so I noticed a few things like using torch instead of flashlight where Jefferson thinks in distinctly British ways This didn't bother me at all but if that bothers youwell I'm just mentioning itThe only other complain I had was that there were a few things that didn't uite add up for me but it was not pronounced enough to bother me and I don't want to ruin the mystery by explaining them in too much detail But for example one of the characters suffered what I considered to be an unnecessary fate if the father loved her as much as the author seems to indicate because he had a chance to rectify things after the mother diedThat's just going to be confusing to someone who hasn't read the book but I don't want to clarify for fear of spoiling it I probably just think too much and I doubt it would bother anyone elseAs I said the books are wonderful and well written and I enjoyed the first one so much that I bought the rest

    Another page turner that I stayed up late and read Jefferson Tayte an American genealogist finds himself in England once His client an American woman who just found out that she was adopted as a baby and was born in England after WWII Now she wants to find out what happened to her mother and if she is still alive This is the second in the series

    At first I thought this book was not going to be as good as the first After all it deals with a young girl in WWII England who finds herself pregnant by a soldier and disappears after giving up her baby for adoption But then the bodies start to appearnot WWII bodies but real present day bodies who turn up dead right before Jefferson Tayte can interview them Why is someone interested in such a commonplace occurrence? It is probably a good thing that Steve Robinson put the scene in the Prologue If there is any doubt that this book is not going to live up to the high adventure of his first book that little scene dispels that nonsense The client 66 year old Eliza Gray has been sent a little red suitcase anonymously with a note saying that it was from her real mother It came as a big surprise as Eliza did not know that she was adopted She hires JT to go to England to find our who her real mother is and why after all this time someone has revealed this fact to her JT being at loose ends and missing his mentor Marcus Brown steels himself to fly again to England to engage in research which doesn't seem to be very interesting However he understands what Eliza is feeling because he has suffered from the same lack of knowledge about his own parents and he looks forward to supplying her with information that he has not been able to find for himselfIn short order he is able to find the name of her mother but there is no name listed for her father Thus begins the uest As with the first book the action passes between present and past and the reader is able to fill in some of the gaps and the truth of some of JT's conclusions We know that Mena did have a soldier sweetheart but there are a number of things that just don't add up Just about everyone JT needs to contact has recently died or has no information making the picture even murky and that is when the bodies start to pile up

    I truly enjoyed this novel The time differences with the present to the past were really well done and suspenseful I only recently started enjoying historical fiction and with the present woven in I liked it that much Poor Mena I shed some tears over her ordeal And the ending I never did fully figure out the end until it was all spelled out The whole book was well written powerful shocking yet easy to read Another good sign in a great novel uestioning if this could have really happened I can’t even think about thatJT is also a loveable character I look forward to many of his tales to be brought to life by this great author

    The 2nd book in the genealogical detective series by Steve Robinson This book continues to follow the exploits of a most different type of main character than we are used to in Jefferson Tatye man who solves family genealogical mysteries This book is different then the first one in that the author fills in a lot of the missing pieces by going back and forth in time from a current day search for clues as to a womans true identity to back in 1944 in which we relive a lot of the incidents that occurred through the eyes of Philomena Lasseter As seems to be the MO in all of these books the family mystery always takes Tayte into harms way and this time it is not different as we begin the book with Tayte seemingly ready to be shot and then go back and find out how he got himself into this predicament Was surprised at the ending of the book in that you had a bit of an idea who was behind things but iti is not until the last few chapters that we find out the motivation for keeping things secret It is a story of a woman who was adopted and lives in the US and who out of the blue receives a package containing a red suitcase and she hires Tayte to find out who she really is and who her mother is A bit convoluted in family history but then again whose family does not contain a bit of convoluted history or at least some strange family membersIf you have never read any of this series they are so very different from the usual detective novels and while we never really get that close to uncovering a lot about Jefferson Tayte the person his cases and escapades are always entertaining and uick fun reads This is the 2nd in a series that has now stretched into its 5th book and I see and long and prosperous career for both Jefferson Tayte and his creatorauthor Steve Robinson 45

    The tragedy of shameI enjoyed In The Blood immensely Steve Robinson’s debut novel which I gave five stars What a fool I was Giving the book that score makes it difficult to show how much better this book is Here is a writer in a clear ascendency This book is much better than his previous novel The story is much carefully written the involvement in the main character is woven into every page To me this is Mena’s book not JT’s Don’t get me wrong I really like the character of JT but the tragic story of Mena Lasseters life screams out from the pages and somehow makes the genealogist’s involvement less emotiveThis is a book written in a sad framework that covers over 65 years and is of a love story than a thriller It is compelling to the very end If anything I felt the thriller element an interruption from the main story and somewhat of an irrelevance by comparison to the power of the main storyIf you want an example of great storytelling then this is the book for you as JT traces the tracks of a tragic life bringing the pieces together to a fabulously emotional conclusionEnjoy the book and appreciate how an author improves on his very good debut novel and like me look forward to what is to come from this talented writer
