Présentation de l'éditeur

Two hundred years ago a loyalist family fled to England to escape the American War of Independence and seemingly vanished into thin air. American genealogist Jefferson Tayte is hired to find out what happened, but it soon becomes apparent that a calculated killer is out to stop him.

In the Blood combines a centuries-old mystery with a present-day thriller that brings two people from opposite sides of the Atlantic together to uncover a series of carefully hidden crimes. Tayte's research centres around the tragic life of a young Cornish girl, a writing box, and the discovery of a dark secret that he believes will lead him to the family he is looking for. Trouble is, someone else is looking for the same answers and will stop at nothing to find them.

In the Blood is the first book in the Jefferson Tayte mystery series.

Revised edition: Previously published as part of the Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mystery series, this edition of In the Blood includes editorial revisions.

Biographie de l'auteur

Steve Robinson drew upon his own family history for inspiration when he imagined the life and quest of his genealogist-hero, Jefferson Tayte. The talented London-based crime writer, who was first published at age 16, always wondered about his own maternal grandfather – ‘He was an American GI billeted in England during the Second World War,’ Robinson says. ‘A few years after the war ended he went back to America, leaving a young family behind and, to my knowledge, no further contact was made. I traced him to Los Angeles through his 1943 enlistment record and discovered that he was born in Arkansas…’

Robinson cites crime writing and genealogy as ardent hobbies – a passion that is readily apparent in his work.

He can be contacted via his website www.steve-robinson.me or his blog at www.ancestryauthor.blogspot.com.

Can we believe that this is Steve Robinson's first book? What a debut!

It is one of those books that you don't want to put down - that makes you want to stick with it rather than waste time going to bed or doing other chores.

It is a real page turner. There are mysteries inside mysteries, and that is not counting the enigmas, et cetera.

The story slips back and forth over 200 years or more. It does this smoothly and without a detectable jerk. The characters are realistic and well drawn. The mystery and its solution continue right up until the end. I had no idea of the final outcome until I got there.

It was supposed to be part of my holiday reading, but once I looked at it, I was hooked, and I finished it 3 weeks before the holiday began.

A fast-paced thriller like this, in such a beautiful setting, and with the costume drama built in, should be filmed or televised. I look forward to watching it.

Well done Steve.

I enjoyed this book once I got into it. Better to read first few chapters in one go so as not to lose the storyline. Recommended for all those who like a "detective" story.

If you are interested in genealogy then this book is for you. It has all the elements to keep you reading. I do not want to spoil your enjoyment by telling you more about it. After reading this I went on to buy #2 and #3 in this series. All of them left me wanting more.

Unusual! would be what comes to my mind after reading this first book in a series.
Although the beginning was a little slow, it really picked up... action came into play and Tayte our amateur detective started to show spunk and personality!
I enjoyed the book partly because I love historical novels; we go back and forth between contemporary and 18th century stories, although sometimes the style of writing seems a little outdated...
Good fun. I am very tempted to give Tayte another go and I will try number 2!

Just finished reading In the Blood by Steve Robinson. I found it quite an enjoyable, light-hearted read. My criticisms are that I had an unfortunate image of Jefferson Tayte as looking like Sergeant Bilko and the image became even worse when he was compared to Larry Hagman, both comical figures in my book, so hard to take seriously. That was also the problem with several situations in the book when Tayte should have been dead and buried many times, but the story had to continue of course. Also the way Tayte moved around the area was hardly credible, but if you like your crime light-hearted you got over that. I also found there was a lot of packaging in the book, descriptions of landscapes, rooms, inns, people, etc, which were nothing to do with the plot. Some of the people in the plot were also hard to place in whether they were in the skulduggery class or goodies. I feel I am being very critical but these were the things that irked me and I don't want to give the impression it was a load of rubbish, I quite enjoyed it. A commendable first book, wish I could do as well!

Quite a good story - the basic idea being well thought -out, however two things which I didn't like is the super heroics, are there really men who could do that sort of thing, and towards the end the story drags out so I was impatient for it to finish.
