One of the best genealogy mysteries I have read

As a professional genealogist and reseacher of American ancestry, I read this novel and found it outstanding in facts, nuance, imagination of possible scenerios during the Revolution. I wish the author would write more novels.

Best New Genealogy Fiction

FUG 10 is one of the best new genealogy mysteries I have read in the last several years. Osman's story is based on his experience of researching his own Pennsylvania ancestors. The story is suspenseful, historical, modern, emotional, and witty. These attributes make for any good mystery. What sets apart a great genealogy mystery for me are the methods of investigation. Do the methods of investigating the ancestors involved in the story make sense? Are they creative? Are they based in what is available to a real genealogist? Osman's experience shines through. His fictional Rhone family understands investigating the past requires not just collecting dates, names and places but understanding the events surrounding our ancestors lives and creating hypothesis that can be tested by uncovering not just one, but several pieces of evidence that confirm the hypothetical. FUG 10 introduces us to the history of several Pennsylvania counties and paints a story of typical migration, marriage and family relationships right after the Revolution. The stories of these ancestors could be the stories of our ancestors. This fictional history creates the mystery for the Rhone family and ultimately the reader too. The Rhone's know what all genealogist know-genealogy is addictive. As a confirmed addict I was totally drawn into Osman's mystery. I tried to stay one step ahead of the Rhone's with my methods of historic investigation, but they opened my eyes to several new sources. The story had me reading about my own Pennsylvania ancestors as I read about the Rhone family. When fiction meets reality a reader not only enjoys a story, but also relates to a story. Osman has written such a believable and enjoyable mystery that I'm looking forward to the next brick wall his fictional genealogists break down.

Intriguing Novel

If you like history, you will love this novel. A great mixture of fiction and history that captures you and holds your interest from the beginning.

Riviting Historical Novel

A very interesting Historical Novel which combines mystery with history. The book is crafted in a way that you can not anticipate the ending and ties in generations of a family starting during the Revolutionary War and ending with the current generation. I could not put it down until I finished it.
