I'm really enjoying reading the range of genealogical fiction that has started to spring up, especially those stories set in the UK. For the uninitiated, they usually tell the story of a family history researcher who uncovers a hidden secret in the past which impacts on the present day.

My favourite author of this genre is Steve Robinson - so far he's written four books:
In The Blood
To The Grave
The Last Queen of England
The Lost Empress

All are based around an Americal genealogist, Jefferson Tayte, whose research brings him to the UK. More information can be found on the author's website: http://www.steve-robinson.me/Welcome.html

He is good isn't he, just in the middle of the Lost Empress myself.

I really enjoyed that one - there's even a nod to Liverpool in it!
