Free (Kindle/Nook/Sony/Smashwords) Redcoat by David Crookes [Historical Fiction]

Synopsis
1873...A landslide at a diamond mine in Africa leaves a British army major crippled. He holds a young lieutenant responsible and wants him court-martialed. A soldier is killed when the army try to arrest the lieutenant on his wedding day in England. But he escapes and so begins a ruthless worldwide manhunt, throughout the U.S. Canada and Australia until eventually the hunted becomes the hunter.

Biography
David Crookes self-published his first novel BLACKBIRD in 1996. It was quickly picked up by Hodder Headline, now HATCHETTE GROUP, and became a best seller in multiple editions, as did THE LIGHT HORSEMAN'S DAUGHTER and SOMEDAY SOON and other titles. Now most of his many novels are available as ebooks.

Seems to be DRM-free, a surprise from Barnes & Noble.

Oh, good! That IS a surprise. Do you know that from downloading or is there a way to tell from looking at it on the website? I didn't know they had any DRM free either.

I know it is DRM-free because I downloaded it. I don't know of any way to tell whether it is DRM-free from the website.

It is also free at Smashwords. Just finished reading it yesterday and a couple of days before, I finished reading his free ebook Blackbird. Both were excellent, well-written stories. I liked them enough that I bought, at $3.99 each, the other books he has written that are available at Smashwords.

Blackbird is no longer free, but I'll definitely give Redcoat a try. It's a bit out of my normal fare, but I really like historical mysteries, so historical fiction sometimes works for me too, and free is good. And if the author has a number of other e-books available at reasonable prices, all the more reason to give a try. (I HATE it when one e-book by an author or in a series is free/discounted, but then the rest - usually mostly backlist - are really pricey...)

I just finished, minutes ago, Crooke's The Light Horseman's Daughter. Another excellent story. I'm just starting his Someday Soon.
