4.0 out of 5 stars Pre Raphaelites and family history, 11 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pale As The Dead (Paperback)
Natasha Blake is intrigued when Bethany Marshall consults her about tracing her family history. She is even more intrigued when Bethany disappears without telling her exactly what she wants her to research. Natasha is approached by Bethany's boyfriend - Adam - a photographer. He gives her a handwritten 19th century diary which Bethany was convinced contained the clue to her ancestry.

Working against time and threatened by mysterious phone calls, a break in and someone following her whenever she goes out, Natasha has to try and find out who Bethany is and where she's disappeared to. I found the background of Natasha's work as a genealogist absolutely fascinating as was the insight into the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood. The plot is fast paced and keeps you guessing to the end. The only reason why I haven't given it 5 stars is because I thought the ending was a little too neat and tidy.

The book is an excellent read if you like your mysteries a little different. There is little violence and bad language and the book is well written. It is the start of a series about Natasha Blake though the book will stand on its own. I read 'Bloodline' before I read this one but it didn't spoil my enjoyment of either book. I look forward to reading more in this series.
