The Shadow – Staff Pick – Terry

The Shadow by James Patterson and Brian Sitts (Request)(CloudLibrary)

The Shadow by Brian Sitts and James Patterson is an interesting use of the 1930s radio serial character “The Shadow” who ends up suddenly in a dystopian future setting.  The book follows both Lamont Cranston (The Shadow), and Maddy Gomes, a teenager who works with Lamont and serves as an interesting set of perspectives on this with Lamont being from the past and Maddy being from the current future.  Anyone familiar with The Shadow drama series will see a few other familiar characters as well as some of Lamont’s skills and abilities, but prior knowledge of the character is not necessary to enjoy the book.  Overall a good read.
