Book Description

15 Sep 2013
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.

Born in the famed battle town of Hastings, England, Nathan Dylan Goodwin has always had a passion for writing in one form or another. Having gained a 2:1 degree in Radio, Film and Television studies, Nathan went on to gain a Masters degree in Creative Writing, from Canterbury Christ Church University.

Nathan started his writing career with non-fiction, his first book 'Hastings at War' being published in May 2005. This was followed by three further local history books pertaining to the area around his home town of Hastings. His first forays into fiction writing culminated in the publications in 2013 of A Very Old Man (short story) and Hiding the Past (genealogical crime mystery novel).

In his mid-thirties, Nathan enjoys reading, writing and time with his family and young son. That about sums it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great genealogical detective read 30 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was totally gripped from start to finish. Likeable main characters in Morton and Juliette and sympathetic and believable treatment of his personal story line. Relevant historical information was presented well without being "textbooky". I enjoyed the switches from past to present and the twists and turns along the way. Unusually for me I didn't work out "who done it". I understand Morton's obsessive compulsive attitude to his research but found some of the situations he got himself into rather far fetched. I hope there's another Morton Farrier book, if not a series, in the pipeline - but get the proof reading sorted!

Really enjoyed this book - a good mix of genealogy, intrigue and action.
Could make a decent TV drama perhaps?

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed it! 26 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book, which had a VERY strong story line. My only criticism is that it needed serious proof reading. For instance it was said that a character "ordained" to look at the hero when the word should have been "deigned". Had the story not been so strong I would have stopped reading right there. But the story was great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down. 5 Feb 2014
By Sandie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book caught my eye on the Kindle special deal page as I have never heard of a forensic genealogist. I decided to "look inside the book". By the time I got to the end of that section I was hooked, so purchased it immediately in order to continue reading. I continued to read (no breaks), until I had finished the book, it's that good.

There were one or two spelling mistakes, but not enough to detract from the story. If you like blood and guts with your thrillers, you probably wouldn't like this book, but If you like a good mystery, and an intriguing somewhat different plot you will probably enjoy it as much as I did.

The story has some interesting twists and turns right up to the end.

This book had a good storyline with references to genealogical research facilities, and problems encountered with this type of research, all adding to the plot. Morton too is a very believable character. A great read.
