Genealogy of Murder
When it comes to murder, mothering, and missing persons, Detective Deb Ralston is the woman for the job. In this, her twelfth case, Deb is called in to
untangle a case of mistaken identity - or is it? First, an extra body is discovered among other cadavers that make up an ongoing forensics experiment.
Then, Marvin Tutwiler, a local genealogist, turns up missing. Is the body his? If not, then whose is it? And where is the genealogist? Before Deb can figure
out this mess, Matilda Greenwood, her close friend and researcher for the missing Marvin Tutwiler, disappears herself. Tracing Matilda and Marvin's work
only confuses the issue: it seems that Marvin has racked up quite a number of unhappy ex-wives, ex-fiancees, and ex-girlfriends. Could one of them have
been involved? It promises to take all of Deb's famous courage in the face of a crisis, her detecting instincts, and the help of her husband, Harry, to
find her friend before it's too late.
FROM THE CRITICS
Hours after finding a freshly embalmed John Doe smuggled in among the other participants in an experiment on cadaveric decomposition, Fort Worth Det. Deb
Ralston (Bird in a Cage, 1995, etc.) hears her friend Matilda Greenwood complain that Marvin Tutwiler, the genealogist who hired her to help him write
his latest book, has disappeared. But there's no evidence that John Doe ever lived in Tutwiler's apartment. Before Deb can establish just who John Doe
is, though, Tutwiler's place is burgled; so is his fiancée's; so is Matilda's. Then the fiancée is killed and Matilda kidnapped, obviously by somebody
who's really interested in all that genealogical research.
So far, so good; but Martin's 12th novel supplies only the pettiest motive for the villain's enterprising crime spree. Below average for the series.
