BOOK REVIEW: THE GEOGRAPHER'S LIBRARY
Paul Tomm is a journalist for the local newspaper, the Lincoln Carrier. He is assigned the job of writing the obituary of a history professor. At first this seemed like a normal, routine assignment. However, when the coroner in the case is murdered, Tomm becomes very involved in this story. This story really began nine hundred years ago with the theft of alchemical instruments from the court geographer of Sicily.
The story goes back and forth in time as the author gives us details about the thefts that occurred many years ago. The author does a good job of making the two subplots come together.
What does Tomm discover during his investigation?
The author has done an excellent job with the character development. The plot is different, complicated and intriguing. The suspense builds throughout the book but the ending might not be what you would expect. Nonetheless, this should not stop you from reading this book. Jon Fasman shows the reader that he is an intellectual and very creative writer.
