Sintesi dell'editore

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 and has been outspoken in his criticism of his medical treatment. Then, ex-marine and fellow amputee Tikima Robertson walks into his hospital room, hinting that she has an opportunity for Sam to use his investigative skills.

But before she can return, Tikima is murdered. When a journal dating to 1919 is found in Tikima's home, detailing a 90-year-old crime that foreshadows Tikima's death, Sam must delve into the area's rich history to uncover the murderous truth.

"A wealth of historical detail, an exciting treasure hunt and credible characters distinguish this fresh, adventurous read." ( Publishers Weekly)

Didn't click for me.

Would you try another book from Mark de Castrique and/or William Dufris?

The story starts with a combat Veteran, healing from wounds, and meets another Veteran. There is this mystery and they come together to solve it.The contemporary Veteran characters held my interested with their interactions with each other. I was good with the story up to that point. Then a lost diary is introduced in to the plot. Now the focus changes and the diary is going to aid in the solving of the mystery. The kid in the diary did not add more interest for me. I found the story of him and his troubles boring to me, and the flashbacks to the diary were irritating. About this stage in the story I lost my interest. Either, to keep reading any further or where the story went from here, and quit reading.

Historical Mystery at Biltmore

I thoroughly enjoyed this first in a series about combat wounded, Sam Blackman who lost a leg in Iraq and after poor medical treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center is recovering in the VA hospital in Asheville, North Carolina. There he meets fellow service member and amputee, Timika Robertson. After some Army versus Marines banter, the two become friends, but too soon Timika is found murdered, and floating in a local river. When Sam sneaks out of his hospital room to attend Tamika's funeral, meeting her family, he ends up speaking at her service. Afterward Timika's sister, Nakayla contacts Sam asking for his help in solving Timika's murder. She has found a journal dating back to 1919 in her sister's apartment and a note reading "for Sam". Her sister's apartment had been ransacked and the journal was hidden inside the book jacket of a different book. This story, going between current day and 1919 is rich with historical details about Biltmore Estate and the times in which it was built. Although it is a work of fiction and not altogether factual, I found it to be a wonderful story of family and right choices made at a time when most would have chosen otherwise. I loved it when it all came together. Other readers/listeners were put off by the fact that the tale was a little far fetched . . . not me . . . it was the perfect setting for just a tad bit of wonder and magic. And it was well offset by the evil that was pursuing it. Not to give any of this jewel of a tale away, suffice to say, you won't want to miss this one. On a side note, I found the narration to be good with one exception, the person is certainly not from the south 😂😂😂 or he would know how to pronounce Birmingham.

Narration was great...mystery pace boring

I don't think the Narration is the issue, it was pretty good. The pace of the story was slow for me.

Not Normally a Mystery Fan

If you could sum up Blackman's Coffin in three words, what would they be?

Good Story Line

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blackman's Coffin?

I can't pick out just one. I appreciate good humor in a story, and this definitely has a lot of good lines that made me laugh.

Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?

Once again, hard to choose, I liked Sam, both the Robertson sisters, and Nathan but most of the other characters too.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a lot!

Any additional comments?

I have listened to this book many times, and would do so again. Excellent use of humor, good story line, and a lot of real historical facts.

Great read/Listen

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this. It moved well and kept my interest. I enjoyed it even more as I have lived in Asheville for the last 23 years and truly enjoyed the history of Asheville and the area that was documented in this book.
