Do you mysteries as much as you love genealogy?

Do you mysteries as much as you love genealogy? If you do, take a look at the series of books by Steve Robinson, who combines genealogy and mystery. The latest is book 5 of his Jefferson Tayte novels called Kindred. To be honest, I have not read the first 4 books of the series--but don't let that stop you from reading them.
The book is a fun read--once you get past the first couple of chapters when the story really starts to take off.  The author incorporates several genealogical skills into the storyline. Granted, it won't change your life, but if you're looking for one more book to finish your summer reading, try any one of Robinson's books. And then enjoy the read!
