The Family Tree

The Family Tree


The DNA results are back. And there’s a serial killer in her family tree…

Liz Catalano is shocked when an ancestry kit reveals she’s adopted. But she could never have imagined connecting with her unknown family would plunge her into an FBI investigation of a notorious serial killer…

The Tri-State Killer has been abducting pairs of women for forty years, leaving no clues behind – only bodies.

Can Liz figure out who the killer in her new family is? And can she save his newest victims before it’s too late?

A gripping, original thriller for fans of My Lovely Wife, Netflix’s Making a Murderer, and anyone who’s ever wondered what their family tree might be hiding…

Our Review

I am not generally a fan of books written by two authors but this one was seamless. The Family Tree was so good I read it all in one day because I couldn't wait to see how it ended. 

Liz is very close to her cousin Andie and is thrilled when she buys her a DNA test kit but when it throws up a few suprises Andie is left questioning everything she thought was true. 

Liz decides she needs answers and begins to look deeper into her family history but what will she do when she finds one of them could be a serial killer?  Not just any serial killer, one who has operated for decades without capture. 

I liked that the authors write The Family Tree from the point of view of Liz, the serial killer and the victims so the reader really feels plunged into their reality. I particularly liked the way they weaved each victim's stories to connect them. 

"They were like sisters this group of stolen girls. Dead but not forgotten." 

I thought the concept behind The Family Tree was highly original and made for a great psychological thriller. Great for fans of I'll be Gone in The Dark.
