Original and brilliant detective story...
10 January 2016
I recently finished reading Stephen Molyneux's mystery, "The Marriage Certificate" and truly enjoyed it. It is an original & brilliant idea for a "detective story" and full of information about how to use the on-line research facilities for obtaining birth/marriage/death certificates and genealogy research which was fascinating.
This book starts out with Peter Sefton noticing a marriage certificate on the wall of an antique shop, buying it, and then doing the research on the couple married. This research takes him on a journey through his characters lives that make it hard to put this book down. This book leaves you captivated and when you think you know what will happen next, the author totally takes you by surprise by going down another mesmerising path. The history interweaves makes this story credible and the emotion highly charged and sometimes quite sad.
