Good read. I knew the basic story from reviews of the film. Still haven't seen the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read., 17 Nov. 2014

First time I have read anything by this author and its the first time in a long time that I have been gripped with the story and couldn't put it down.
Without giving too much away the storyline is that an American genealogist (Jeff Tayte) is researching the family of a client who believe some of their ancestors returned to England in the 1790s. The paper trail is incomplete with no death certificates in the archives for the mother and children who returned. There are records for the father and a second family with the title passing down the generations to the present day.
Much to his dismay Jeff Tayte who hates flying is sent across to England to try to unravel the mystery and is faced with barriers put in his way. There are murders, kidnappings, shootings and various other twists to the tale but Tayte comes through it unscathed and solves the mystery. A good read.

1.0 out of 5 stars not as expected, 21 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
took this set on holiday in Kindle format, very disappointed when what I thought was going to be a normal crime novel turned in to a bizarre supernatural story about a police officer who has an accident sustaining fatal injuries which are cured by a mentor she has never met before. Not my kind of book

I'm not a Harry Potter fan and was interested to see how J K Rowling wrote. I wasn't disappointed it was a good read. My only problem was keeping up with the charachters, at one point I almost wished I had a note pad to jot down who was who!

This review is from: Big Maria (Kindle Edition)
the start was awful but once through that it was readable. Very light wait with a crazy plot and mad characters.

I was very unsure of this book, not my usual type of read but was very pleasantly surprised. I took me to a time in history I knew very little about and it was a great read.

Very interesting story, moving the stage out of Edinburgh and north on the A9 was great for me. I hope there are more similar books to follow. I am actually reading the book for a second time.
