Reviewed by Dina C. Carson and Bobbi King

Morton Farrier, forensic genealogist, is back with a new, much more personal case to solve.

Will a three-week honeymoon in America be long enough for him to find his biological father and discover the secret he is keeping? What will the records in Boston untangle? A former life? A former wife?

Morton’s investigation will lead him through a twisted tale of family, mysterious fires and murder! What could lead him to his elusive father when disappearing is the family business?

Nathan Dylan Goodwin has delivered another page-turning mystery laden with forensic genealogical clues that will keep any family historian glued to the book until the mystery is solved.

Other books by Nathan Goodwin include:
Hiding the Past
The Lost Ancestor
The Orange Lilies
The America Ground
The Spyglass File

Dina C. Carson owns Iron Gate Publishing. Besides authoring self-help books on writing family history, she is a gravestone photographer, author of Boulder County history books, and active volunteer for Colorado societies.

Bobbi King is recently retired.

I thoroughly enjoy Goodwin’s books, especially this one since I am from Boston. He sends free copies to our genealogical library, and we pass them around.


I have enjoyed the other books in this series & look forward to reading this one.


I assume this is fiction, not actual genealogical research?


Where do I find these books in the Boston area?


I bought his first book on Amazon and liked it so much, I went on. Marathon reading binge and finished the rest of his books within two weeks. Now reading some other authors, until he finishes his next book.
