Free (Kindle/Nook/Sony) The Nail Knot [Rural Mystery/Crime Thriller]
The Nail Knot by John Galligan is the 1st in his Fly Fishing Mystery series of small-town amateur sleuth murder mystery/crime thrillers, free courtesy of publisher Adams Media's Tyrus imprint.
Currently free @ Amazon UK, will probably drop in the main store and show up at B&N and Sony, as Adams Media books normally tend to do.
Adams Media have also previously given us The Clinch Knot and The Wind Knot, the 3rd and 4th volumes in the series, respectively, so if you enjoy this, you may want to check your archives for further reading and if you splurge on the 2nd in the series, your amortized cost for all 4 volumes will be roughly $2 per (less if you use a Kobo coupon, since their books are non-Agency and discountable there).
Fly fisherman Ned Ogilvie is fleeing his old life, driving a broken-down RV and drinking Vodka and Tang when he catches more than a fish in the small town of Black Earth, Wisconsin.
The going has gotten tough, and Ned “Dog” Oglivie has gone fishing. Fly fishing. For trout. All across America. At least until his money runs out . . .
Driven by tragedy to turn his back on human society, the Dog is on a quest to fish himself into oblivion. And he’s nearly made it. Playing the back highways of America in a wounded old RV . . . provisioned with a supply of peanut butter sandwiches, bad cigars, and vodka-Tang . . . armed with a loaded pistol (for when the money runs out) . . . the Dog is nearly at the end of his tether when he rolls into little Black Earth, Wisconsin, intending to fish the yellow sally stonefly hatch . . . and finds a body instead.
Who killed Jake Jacobs, fellow fly fisher and late-coming agitator who was trying to save Black Earth Creek? Why was Jacobs disfigured in such a peculiar way? Why does the Dog give a damn? Can he rekindle his faith and interest in humankind? By caring about the death of a stranger, can the Dog recover his own life? Can he untie The Nail Knot?
