About this title:

Synopsis: [Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.]

[Read by William Dufis]

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 Veterans Hospital in Asheville, NC. Disillusioned with the military, grieving over the recent death of his parents, and at odds with his brother, Sams life is in shambles. Then an exmarine 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. Tikimas sister, Nakayla, brings Sam a journal she finds in Tikimas apartment. A note stuck to the inside cover reads For Sam Blackman. The volume dates to 1919 and contains the entries of a twelveyearold 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, Elijahs body was also found in the French Broad River, a crime foreshadowing the death of his greatgreatgranddaughter Tikima Sam and Nakayla must delve into Ashevilles rich history, the legacy of the Vanderbilts at the Biltmore estate, and of author Tom Wolfe to uncover the murderous truth.

About the Author: MARK DE CASTRIQUE writes the 'Sam Blackman' series and 'Buryin Barry' series set in the mountains of North Carolina. He has also authored two mysteries for Young Adults. He and his wife Linda divide their time between Charlotte and Asheville.
