It took me a little bit to get into this book, but after I did, I was really interested. It goes back and forth between present and past. There is a cover up and mystery in both times. Then you find out that they are connected and that poking around trying to find answers is deadly. It does a good job with the suspense, and it tells a good story. The main guy is believable. He's in these life or death situations, and he's all like what am I doing I'm just a genealogist, instead of coming off as expert in everything mentally and physically.
