I am now addicted to the Simon Shaw E-books despite numerous formatting glitches. Fortunately there are at least three more in the series still to read. One person found this helpful. I love the natural pacing of this mystery series. There is no artificial do-or-die TV adrenalin-pumping peril on a regularly scheduled basis, one mark of the potboiler.
The main characters all seem like "real people" in the sense of people who react to situations in reasonable ways that advance the carefully drawn mystery plot. The main protagonist is an interesting mix of sometimes conflicting cultural influences - Jewish on one side, lapased fundamentalist Christian on the other, shotgun-shootin' mountain people and a university professor father It's fun to watch how Shaber makes this character's puzzle pieces fit together. All in all, this is one of the best "cold case" mystery series I've seen - plus, just thinking of the hero as a forensic historian makes me smile.
These books are not for action junkies. Those who enjoy seeing a good writer build upon extensive research and knowledge of a region the South, at an educated level where not everyone is straight out of "Deliverance" with non-frantic, lifelike pacing and believable characters will consider this series a find. There are still a few adjustments Amazon can make to its robot's delivery male-have not heard female without any expense: Don't know how they can do anything to prevent differential pronunciations of same spelling, now wound comes out wownd when context calls for woond. These things one gets accustomed to;I find the reading satisfactory, though not up to the fine voice-actors one usually gets on an audiobook--for a great deal more money.
This novel precedes some of the others I have read, so I will avoid details which become central in the later ones.
