Then he employed the services of one Morton Farrier, forensic genealogist – a stubborn, determined man who uses whatever means necessary to uncover the past. With the Coldrick Case, Morton faces his toughest and most dangerous assignment yet, where all of his investigative and genealogical skills are put to the test. However, others are also interested in the Coldrick family, people who will stop at nothing, including murder, to hide the past. As Morton's investigation leads him deeper into the Coldrick family's dark history, he is also forced to confront his own family's secrets, which have been buried for far too long. With powerful enemies lurking in the shadows, will Morton be able to uncover the truth before it's too late?This is the first book in the Forensic Genealogist series.
