Steve Robinson (steverobinson) | 46 comments Almost a year on since I released In the Blood, the sequel has landed. It's called To the Grave.

Here's the blurb from the Amazon product page.

TO THE GRAVE (A Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Crime Mystery #2). 96,000 words.

To the Grave can be read as a stand-alone story, although it may be better enjoyed after reading In the Blood, the first in the Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Crime Mystery series and one of Amazon Uk's 'Best Books of 2011'.

DESCRIPTION

Inspired by the author’s own family history…

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 Mena Lasseter - a girl whose life has become a family mystery.

Hoping to reunite his client with the mother she never knew she had, Tayte’s research draws him back to wartime Leicestershire and the arrival of the US 82nd Airborne, which irrevocably changes the course of Mena’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 Mena first and it quickly becomes apparent that their motive is a secret worth killing for.

You can find out more about it and the inspiration behind it by visiting my website at http://www.steve-robinson.me.

It's only out for kindle at present. The paperback edition should be out sometime in August.

Steve Robinson (steverobinson) | 46 comments I've just hit the 'publish' button for the paperback edition of To the Grave. I should be able to see the proof copy in about 10 days.

I went for the same 6x9 inch format as last time to keep paper costs down again so it can sell for the same as In the Blood - and I thought they should be the same size. It will be a bit thinner (260 pages as opposed to 315). Should slip into a bag without too much bulk.

I'm also excited to see that it's just entered the top 100 in France (No.89).
