Excellent addition to the genealogical mystery genre. Nick Herald is based on a real certified genealogist and the story shows that part of life. Nick (in the book) is a disgraced English Professor who turns to genealogy as a 2nd career. He finds out he's pretty good at it and survives in a field that is often a plaything for the rich. Set in New Orleans, Nick gets involved in the murder of an old friend and mentor who seems to have gotten involved in a genealogical mystery that is lethal. There are a couple of societies involved including one called Allegorie or la Allegorie, which is where Nick's friend had been working.

There are plenty of twists and turns to this one but I really enjoyed the ride and will continue reading this series. ( )
