Item description for The Coffin Blind by Mark Robbins...
Overheard at a Sportsman's Show: "What is a coffin blind?" "Something that hunters hide in when they hunt. The blinds are very deadly." "For the ducks or the hunters?" "Sometimes for both." Brant Sherman's sharp-shooting skills and predatory instincts have made him one of Boston's most respected U.S. federal marshals. Following a high-profile prisoner debacle, Brant is assigned to a task force in Concord, Mass. where a secretive group of animal rights terrorists who call themselves the Legion of St. Francis has begun to carry out harrowing acts of retribution. But as he initiates his investigation, the attacks escalate, the relationship between predator and prey begins to change and Brant starts to question his role in the chain of terrible events. THE COFFIN BLIND is a page-turner filled with engaging characters including two very different women, an aging cold case profiler, and a huge Chesapeake Bay retriever who work their way through a tightly plotted, memorable thrill ride for any reader willing to take it. "Mark Robbins' debut starts out with a bang and never lets up. With a terrific New England setting and an insider's perspective, THE COFFIN BLIND combines non-stop outdoor action, horrific violence, smartass humor, some surprisingly touching moments, and an engaging protagonist named Brant Sherman in a pedal-to-the-metal and joyfully non-PC crime novel. I think we'll be seeing more of Mark Robbins and Brant Sherman. At least I hope so..." -C.J. Box, New York Times bestselling author of BLUE HEAVEN and BLOOD TRAIL

Great story with fabulous detail. Witty and funny. A quick read, Murder Mystery. Half the people in my office are reading it, and are anxious to see more from Mark Robbins.
A "can't put down, page turner"! Apr 4, 2008
The Coffin Blind
Hunter, physician, writer Robbins hits us right between the eyes with this fast paced murder thriller and doesn't let up until the very end.
Coffin Blind introduces US Marshall Brant Sherman as the philosopher outdoorsman cold case detective who carries us through a whirlwind of an eco-terror campaign terrifying quaint historic Concord, MA - home of the Minuteman, Paul Revere's Ride, and the "shot heard around the world".
Robbins tours us through Concord's local charms and bucolic beauty while mesmerizing us with Brant's journey to catch a murderous eco-terrorist who terrorizes everyone around Sherman. Through this journey, Sherman faces his own demons and nightmares.
While Coffin Blind is Robbin's first novel, it is tight, well written and is a page turner. Robbins writing style is joyfully descriptive, but doesn't drag the story down.
The bottom line is it was a great read that I couldn't put down.
