FROM THE AUTHOR
This book is the second in the series, although it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story without having first read In the Blood. All titles in the series available in audiobook format from March 18, 2014.

'Very rarely does a book touch me the way this one has.'

DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the author's own family history...

What became of Philomena?

To the Grave follows American genealogist, Jefferson Tayte, as he uncovers the disturbing consequences of a seemingly innocuous act in 1944 that was intended to keep a family together, but which ultimately tore it apart. His research exposes hidden pasts, and the desperate measures some people will take to keep a secret.

Sitting in a hotel room at gunpoint, facing an impossible decision, Tayte is forced to wonder how his latest assignment had come to this. Five days earlier, after a child's suitcase arrives unexpectedly at his client's home in Washington DC, Tayte embarks upon a journey that takes him back to England as he tries to unravel the story of Philomena Lasseter - a girl whose life has become a family mystery.

Hoping to reunite his client with the birth mother she never knew she had, having no idea that she'd been adopted, Tayte's research draws him back to wartime Leicestershire and the arrival of the US 82nd Airborne, which irrevocably changes the course of Philomena's life. But as Tayte tries to find out what became of her and why she was separated from her suitcase all those years ago, he soon finds that he is not the only one looking for her. Someone else is determined to get to Philomena first and it quickly becomes apparent that their motive is a secret worth killing for.

The Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Crime Mysteries.  What secrets are in your family history?
