This is the fourth in the Jefferson Tayte series of genealogical mysteries and it is back to the dual timeline that the first two books utilised.
This time JT is tracking down Alice who may or may not have gone down when the Empress of Ireland sank in 1914. Was Alice really a traitor to her country on the eve of war, or just a wife and mother caught up in events beyond her control?
I did enjoy this story. The set-up of these books whereby you are taken back and forth in time, with the story unfolding concurrently is a pleasure to read. But I must admit I preferred the previous book where there was more action and it was set in current times. As a series of books, the stories are well thought out and I look forward to JT's next mystery.
