It’s been a while since I did a book review so as we enter into the unmentionable season when people buy presents, I thought it was time. Nathan Dylan Goodwin has just released the eagerly-awaited second book in his investigative genetic genealogy mysteries. The Sawtooth Slayer picks up right after the Chester Creek Murders but this time the Venator team faces off against a live and currently active serial killer. It’s another fast-paced page-turner as the lives of the Venator team are woven into the fabric of the live case. Anyone who has an interest in using DNA testing and genealogy will find this instructive. Anyone who likes a good crime story will too. My only quibble is that I’d rather it wasn’t set during the pandemic and I don’t think it would take away from the story (except one minor plot point about internet access). I’d quite like to forget about it (she said, just recovering from Covid). All in all, I really enjoyed it and read it in less than a day!
