The Last Death of Jack Harbin

I'm glad you stopped by.

The Last Death of Jack Harbin, second in the Samuel Craddock series, is now available! You can order it through your local bookstore or from Amazon.

"Shames's sophomore series entry highlights her comfortable storytelling style. The lead's folksy tone belies astute detecting, and the plotting will dazzle readers. Consider for fans of Margaret Maron, Steven Havill, and Bill Crider—all 'regional' writers with universal appeal."
