The Blood Detective

The Blood Detective

If you are a genealogist/family historian and you like mysteries, this is a must read. I bought this book for the Kindle app on my iPod Touch and although the publisher did not do a good job of preparing it for the electronic reading experience, I am still happy with my purchase.

If I can put down my other reading, my genealogy work and shut off the TV, that means the book is a hit. I probably will buy the Audible version just to listen to it on the beach. [I think I am in love with Nigel.] Penguin Books Preview

I made this book cover from a shot of the actual ebook cover and enhanced it so it would gain your attention. I belong to a Flickr group where we take a photo of the book, post it and write a review. Several people who belong to this group enjoy mysteries and some are also genealogists.

The author, Dan Waddell, from the UK has written a sequel and it has been released. I may have to buy the hardcover I will miss Nigel Barnes, the character central to the story who is the genealogist/family historian so much when this is over. (see my recent Tweet Experience with the author)

Read the author's basis for the genealogical part of the book

Sorry, but I must go back to reading.....

I clicked on the links and read the blurbs for this book; sounds like a "must read," so I've put it on my "Books to Get" list. Thanks!

I saw a review of that the other day and added it to my wish list. I'm glad that you are enjoying it!
