Although it is set about , it has some of the feel of mysteries of the early 20th century.
No thriller violence, but a real mystery. Like earlier Simon Shaw mysteries, the story revolves around a murder that took place long ago. In this case it is "only" forty years so there are quite a few people still alive who have a piece of the story. Apr 18, Susie rated it liked it Shelves: This is the first in the series of Professor Simon Shaw mysteries that I have read however it is the third book in the series. It is a cozy, comfort read. No bloodshed, a murder that happened long ago and is yet unsolved.
There were times when I felt the author, Sarah R. Shaber, was standing at a lectern getting the historical background of her novel hammered into the heads of students. Not fond of info dumping unless it is a bit more integrated into the storyline.

A body has just been found from the woman the inmate is accused of killing. Shaw decided to take it on and goes home to the Appalachian mountains where his kinfolk live. While there he unravels the history of the case and meets some of the people involved. Good writing and interesting history of the 50s and the Appalachians. Apr 01, Kathy Smith rated it really liked it. I am enjoying the Sarah R. Professor Simon Shaw is an interesting character.
He considers himself to be a historic detective. He solves the mystery surrounding the wrongful conviction of a man who was believed to have killed the woman he loved. This story takes place in Boone, NC where Shaw grew up. It's what I consider a light mystery which I often read when there is a lot going on in my life. This is the third book in a series that is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Fill in the blank. Can't wait to tackle the next book in the series! This was a decent "cozy," featuring Shaw, who teaches history at a small college in Raleigh, NC.
The discovery of a body missing since a presumed murder fifty years earlier brings several skeletons out of the closet in Shaw's home town of Boone, NC.
