Product description

About the Author

Gearóid O'Neary is a genealogist and writer, based in County Sligo, Ireland. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that Gearóid is a writer, and the nom de plume and the alter-ego of Gerard Neary, the genealogist. Gearóid would prefer to while away his days writing stories about all manner of things he observes, some daft and some with serious overtones. On the other hand, Gerard gets emotionally engrossed in researching our ancestors, and then compassionately distributes his findings in private. Gearóid gives him a break now and again, usually dragging him off to the village inn to partake in parish gossip, or to put the world to rights in mildly-heated political debates. Both of them have a sense of humour. Gearóid is a dreamer. Gerard pays the bills.

As I am a keen family historian and also love mysteries I thought I would really enjoy this book having read others of this mix by a different author, however this author was unable to get the mix right. I feel sure that with the right author the story could be much better

Thriller? - I don't think so. To date I have enjoyed the genealogical mysteries I have found on Amazon but this was hard-going as it was difficult to feel any empathy with the characters who seemed to be out of an old black & white American B movie. In the end it all seemed quite pointless.

I was always taught that when you start reading a book you have to be captured almost instantly certainly within the 1st chapter to know whether it's worth reading the rest of it ...well I was certainly captured with this I can tell you that !!!!

An engaging and intriguing true story of old money, the mob and a man with an elusive past and an uncertain future. Twentieth century America laid bare by an Irish genealogist based in the wilds of Sligo in the 21st century.

This is a great idea for a book and obviously written by someone who is very knowledgeable about genealogy I really expected to enjoy it but it just didn't work for me perhaps because it was about American genealogy which I am not that familiar with. Also I found the constant time switches a bit confusing. However the main problem for me was that Merrill emerged as such an unpleasant character that I really didn't care where he was.

Never did manage to finish this book. I have an aversion to not finishing books but could not bring myself to plough through this.

A lot of very good genealogy here but Merrill is so unsympathetic a character that one cannot care about his fate.
