The Tayte series includes 5 best-selling novels, and the fans will be pleased to learn that In the Blood is the very 1st chapter. 200 years ago, an American family ran away to the UK to escape the horrors of the AWI and managed to evaporate into thin air without leaving a single trace behind. Tayte, a professional genealogist, is tasked with a mission:
To discover what really happened that day, but he soon realizes that there's a killer out there, and he'll do everything in his power to stop this "investigation". In the Blood does a brilliant job of mixing a centuries-old case with a contemporary mystery, bringing two people together to reveal several carefully-planned and hidden secrets. Jefferson is confident that his searches will take him to the fam that he's been looking for all this time.
But, dark secrets are coming his way, and if he doesn't do something fast about it, his own life might be sacrificed by the elusive elite that wants him dead. Someone else is out searching for that same family, and they don't really like when "intruders" mess up their business. So, Tayte finds himself in quite a dangerous situation, but he's not one to back down from a real fight.
The man is ready to put everything on the line just to find out what's really going on and why that family is so important to the people that are hunting for them. In the Blood is a gripping, breath-taking mystery thriller that's both riveting and addictive. As far page-turners go, Steve Robinson's ground-breaking series is right there on top of the line. You won't be able to put any of the five books down and will devour them in a couple of days.
