About the Book

The Lost Ancestor (Nathan Dylan Goodwin)
Click to Read an Excerpt
When Morton is called upon by Ray Mercer to investigate the 1911 disappearance of his great aunt, a housemaid working in a large Edwardian country house, he has no idea of the perilous journey into the past that he is about to make.

Morton must use his not inconsiderable genealogical skills to solve the mystery of Mary Mercer’s disappearance, in the face of the dangers posed by those others who are determined to end his investigation at any cost.

This is the second book in the Morton Farrier genealogical crime mystery series, although it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.
