It was to be the most important case of Morton Farrier's career in forensic genealogy so far. A case that had eluded him for many years: finding his own father. Harley 'Jack' Jacklin disappeared just six days after a fatal fire at his Cape Cod home on Christmas Eve in 1976, leaving no trace behind.
Now his son, Morton must travel to the East Coast of America to unravel the family's dark secrets in order to discover what really happened to him.
This is the sixth book in the Morton Farrier genealogical crime mystery series, although it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.
REVIEW OF THE MISSING MAN BY NATHAN DYLAN GOODWIN (2017)
Throughout his books, Nathan Goodwin writes with sudden twists and turns, all within the realm of possibility – usually. His ability to turn his words to excite and enthral his reader seemingly vanished in the last few pages of “The Missing Man” (#6 in The Forensic Genealogist series). The ending was disappointing and totally unbelievable, as if he scribbled down any old collection of words in order to meet an overdue deadline. In the final chapter, Morton relinquished any control he had over his genealogical search for his biological father, something he is not known to have done in ANY of his other research cases. Is a total rewrite of the final chapter too much to ask? The rest is perfection.
