This book was an absolutely fantastic read. It had me gripped from the first chapter until the very end. I like the way it jumped back and forth between the past and the present without confusing the reader. The story was superbly written and easy to follow. Very much looking forward to the sequel. 5 stars from me for the book and THE AUTHOR!!!

Must admit to having met Steve Clegg and have a little knowledge of this books background… Once picked up I just couldn’t put the book down. It has everything to make an unforgettable read, a really good historical/modern mystery, wonderful characters, with a great plot, merging fact and fiction….
Brilliant how tracing your family roots can bring about a riveting first book. I really really cannot recommend this read highly enough..So looking forward to the sequel….

A book you won’t want to put down! One of the best books I have read. Fantastic if you enjoy reading Mystery, Crime and murder-and historical-this combines both historical in the 18oo’s-and Maria’s papers investigation in more recent years 2002-It is Factual and Fiction surrounding the events of the real Maria who is Author Stephen.F.Clegg’s late Great, Great Grandmother, who on her late Father’s behalf set out to reclaim the Whitehall Estate-that was rightfully hers-this piece of history is fact. I was disappointed to reach the last page. If you don’t usually read Crime, Mystery, Murder or even historical. Read this because you will be intrigued! It gets 100 out of a 100 for my vote. Excellent-brilliant author.

Absolutely brilliant! I couldn’t put it down! What an amazing story and based on a true one! Anyone who likes a good thriller with twists and turns and realistic historical content will love this. It jumps from the present to the past in a completely
believable way and you are never confused by the plot or the era that you are in. If you’ve ever read Sarah Rayne then you will be addicted to Stephen Clegg as he gives her a run for her money! Can’t wait for the sequel.

I started reading this book after a recommendation by a friend of mine. Well what can I say? I purchased this on a Wednesday and it was finished 7 days later. I was totally immersed in the characters from start to finish, with fantastic twists and turns along the way. I felt instantly bonded with Maria, and was sad to finish the last page, but what an ending. I am thoroughly looking forward to the next book. The author Stephen F Clegg has fast become one of my favorite writers. The writing was easy to digest and when all is said and done, I remember that this is based on a true story. 5 star rating from me and future recommendations. Bravo.
