Where's Merrill?
Gearoid

Where's Merrill?Gearóid O’Neary is a genealogist and author of "Where's Merill? a genealogical thriller." Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that Gearóid is a writer, and the nom de plume and the alter-ego of Gerard Neary, the genealogist. Gearóid would prefer to while away his days writing stories about all manner of things he observes, some daft and some with serious overtones. On the other hand, Gerard gets emotionally engrossed in researching our ancestors, and then compassionately distributes his findings in private. Gearóid gives him a break now and again, usually dragging him off to the village inn to partake in parish gossip, or to put the world to rights in mildly-heated political debates. Both of them have a sense of humour. Gearóid is a dreamer. Gerard pays the bills. For the uninitiated (and perhaps even those in the know) “Where’s Merrill?” is a uniquely crafted mystery thriller based upon real life historical events. In fact, it is two inter-related stories in one novel set in different time-frames, namely the past and the present. The story is about an Irish genealogist called Jed, commissioned by Tim, an American client, to help identify and find his grandfather; a man who simply disappeared. No death record, no burial. Nothing. The novel is about much more, though. Read the full story, and then come back here for more
