Abstract:

In Asheville North Carolina the Blackman and Robertson Detective Agency faces a disturbing reality: no clients. Sam Blackman finds inactivity intolerable. So when partner Nakayla Robertson suggests a mushroom hunt on the site of an historic freed slave commune called The Kingdom of the Happy Land, Sam reluctantly agrees. When he stumbles across a skeleton his adventure mushrooms into a case of murder. But it isn't his case. He has no client, and the local authorities tell him to butt out. Then Marsha Montgomery comes to the office asking Sam and Nakayla to investigate a burglary at her mothers home. Someone stole a rifle and a photograph of Marsha's mother, grandmother and great grandmother taken in 1932 by renowned photographer Doris Ulmann. The site of the photograph is The Kingdom of the Happy Land. The date of the burglary 1967. Marsha's visit is no coincidence. Sam is being played. But why?
