Professor Shaw is on a roll!
on November 1, 2014
Professor Shaw does it again! He may deny being known as an "historical detective" but he always seems to be smarter than any law enforcement officers when he is involved in a case. This one started out with a bang when Professor Shaw was kidnapped by an escaped convict and you wonder where this story could possibly go from there.
I try very hard not to reveal plot lines in my reviews - instead I let each reader find out for him/herself what happens next. However, I will say that the character development in this book is exceptional and you can picture each and every member of the town of Boone and its surroundings. You also get well acquainted with Simon's family and that is a real treat. There were a couple of places where there was, perhaps, a bit too much detail because you are eager for the story to move along but, all in all, The Fugitive King is another excellent read by Sarah Shaber. If you have read and enjoyed the first two books in this series, you will definitely enjoy this one!
