Free (Kindle/iTunes/DRM-free) Blackman's Coffin [Ex-Military Veteran Murder Mystery]

Blackman's Coffin by Mark de Castrique (SYKM) is the 1st novel in his Sam Blackman series of contemporary mysteries starring a disgruntled ex-military veteran who lost a leg in Iraq, this installment setting him up with his first investigation, to find out what happened to a man who was murdered decades ago, and how that might link to the recent death of one of his relatives, a fellow former Marine whom Blackman met during his recovery, free courtesy of publisher Poisoned Pen Press.

This has previously been offered free in 2012.

Currently free and DRM-free @ Amazon & iTunes (neither available to Canadians).

Description
Sam Blackman is an angry man. A Chief Warrant Officer in the Criminal Investigation Detachment of the U.S. military, he lost a leg in Iraq. His outspoken criticism of his medical treatment resulted in his transfer to the Veteran’s Hospital in Asheville, NC. Disillusioned with the military, grieving over the recent death of his parents, and at odds with his brother, Sam’s life is in shambles. Then an ex-marine and fellow amputee named Tikima Robertson walks into his hospital room.

Tikima hints she has an opportunity for Sam to use his investigative skills—if he can stop feeling sorry for himself. But before she can return, Tikima is murdered, her body found floating in the French Broad River. Sam was the last person to see her alive.

Tikima’s sister, Nakayla, brings Sam a journal she finds in Tikima’s apartment. A note stuck to the in-side cover reads “For Sam Blackman.” The volume dates to 1919 and contains the entries of a twelve-year-old boy who accompanies his father, a white funeral director, as they help a black man, Elijah Robertson, transport his deceased relative from Asheville to a small family plot in Georgia.

The link to the present? Nearly 90 years ago, Elijah’s body was also found in the French Broad River, a crime foreshadowing the death of his great-great-granddaughter Tikima.

Sam and Nakayla must delve into Asheville’s rich history, the legacy of the Vanderbilts at the Biltmore estate, and of author Tom Wolfe to uncover the murderous truth.
