June 8, 1921, Ireland: A British Officer is shot dead on a remote hillside south of Dublin.

November 22, 2015, United Kingdom: Former police detective, Jayne Sinclair, now working as a genealogical investigator, receives a phone call from an adopted American billionaire asking her to discover the identity of his real father. How are the two events linked?

Jayne Sinclair has only three clues to help her: a photocopied birth certificate, a stolen book and an old photograph. And it soon becomes apparent somebody else is on the trail of the mystery. A killer who will stop at nothing to prevent Jayne discovering the hidden secret in the past.

The Irish Inheritance takes us through the Easter Rising of 1916 and the Irish War of Independence, combining a search for the truth of the past with all the tension of a modern-day thriller. 

It is the first in a series of novels featuring Jayne Sinclair, genealogical detective.

    I purchased this book out of curiosity after I had read that it was a genealogical mystery thriller. As all of us who dabble in family history will tell you most of our genealogy research tends to be a mystery in one way or another, unless you're one of the very few lucky ones who knows your family's history going back generations! However, the book was an excellent to read, with a great plot, several good character subplots, and filled with lots of research tips about where to look for various clues and an unexpected twist in the final chapters.
