Murder Once RemovedBook - 2019
Except for a good taco, genealogist Lucy Lancaster loves nothing more than tracking down her clientś™ long-dead ancestors, and her job has never been so exciting as when she discovers a daguerreotype photograph and a journal proving Austin, Texas, billionaire Gus Hallorań™s great-great-grandfather was murdered back in 1849. What́™s more, Lucy is able to tell Gus who was responsible for his ancestoŕ™s death. Partly, at least. Using clues from the journal, Lucy narrows the suspects down to two nineteenth-century Texans, one of whom is the ancestor of present-day U.S. senator Daniel Applewhite. But when Gus publicly outs the senator as the descendant of a murdereŕ•with the accidental help of Lucy herself́•and her former co-worker is murdered protecting the daguerreotype, Lucy will find that shaking the branches of some family trees proves them to be more twisted and dangerous than she ever thought possible.
