I think the appeal of the Jefferson Tayte series is that it combines two of my favourite things – genealogy and reading. Dying Games certainly appeals to the crime fiction fan in me.
About Dying Games
After the danger of his own genealogical journey in Munich, JT and Jean are ready to take things a little easier. Planning their future is a full-time business. That is, until JT receives a call from DC.
There’s a serial killer on the loose and all the victims have one thing in common. Jefferson Tayte.
Who is killing the relatives of JT’s previous clients?
Will JT need to play this genealogical game until the very end?
How far will the killer go to see everything good about JT’s life destroyed?
Dying Games feels different to the previous instalments of JT’s story. It’s darker and closer to crime fiction than the previous books. Although, the genealogical aspect is still entirely relevant. Unlike the other books, there’s no switching to the historical story from the present day.
I absolutely got my teeth into Dying Games, finishing the same day I started it. Although that may have been down to the fact that every time I did anything other than read, Anwen would sit on my laptop.
I have really grown to love Jefferson Tayte over the last 6 books, and its been great to watch him develop and change since he met Jean. In fact, I really feel connected to him.
