Author Gearoid O'Nearyabout this book: "Where's Merrill?" is a book about genealogy, but it's much more. It's based upon a real-life research case, so all the characters are real people, and all the sensational events really happened. But "Where's Merrill?" is written in the style of a mystery thriller with (real) red herrings galore leading up to a curious but satisfactory conclusion, to say the least.

This novel is also an exploration of the truth. It's based on a true story - but what is the truth? Have you ever dug beneath the surface and found that things were not quite as they seemed from above? A professional genealogist must dig until he or she can dig no more. Eccentric and sometimes sinister creatures can lurk unseen in the most outwardly respectable of Family Trees.

So it is difficult to categorize this book as pure historical fiction or a factual reference book about ancestry research. It is both, and cherished by readers of both genres. Take a look, and see if you can answer that real conundrum: "Where's Merrill?"
