Review:

Suzy Fewings is an avid genealogical researcher, and she is thrilled when she discovers that one of her ancestors, one Thomas Loosemore, a church warden in the sixteenth century, had the same name as her son, Tom. But the discovery loses its fascination when further research reveals that Loosemore was most likely a murderer. Her research into the past takes a backseat, however, when a modern-day murder takes place. A 16-year-old local girl, Julie Samuel, is found brutally slain, her body left in a drainage ditch. Even more horrifying is the fact that Tom, who dated Julie in the weeks before her murder, suddenly becomes a suspect in the investigation. Shocked, Suzy begins to wonder if the sixteenth-century Thomas Loosemore could have passed down a curse to her own Tom. As the investigation progresses, Suzy's happy family begins to unravel, as Suzy and her husband think the unthinkable--that Tom is Julie's killer. The conclusion is as surprising as it is tragic. A gripping story and a believable depiction of how a family can be destroyed by guilt and doubt make this a fine read for crime fans. --Booklist, 1st August 2009
