Colonel Jack Adams crashes an AV-8B, Harrier in the middle of a North Carolina Bean field. The task of sorting out the cause of his friend’s accident falls to Colonel Dan Breakheart, the Second Marine Air Wing’s Safety Officer. Within days of the start of his investigation, Breakheart realizes that, not only sabotage was indeed a factor, regarding his friend’s death, but that it may be murder as well. Using information Jack’s wife provides, Breakheart begins delving into the last few days of Colonel Adam’s life. With the help of a young and lovely NADEP engineer and his best buddy, Major “Snake” Burns, he must solve the mystery quickly, but to do so, places himself in harm’s way, while smoking the malefactor into a confession.
Praise for David C. Corbett’s, “A Good Marine’s Murder” “Great story-grabber, right from the prologue. You don’t need me to tell you that your descriptions of Marine Corps life and flying were right on the money! I felt like I was there the whole way.” -Major General Richard A. Gustafson, USCMC (Ret.) “...I read this book in two days...11 chapters the first day, and then finished it off early in the morning of the second day. I had a hard time putting it down, as I was so hooked into the story and my familiarity with everything in the book from Cherry Point, Harriers, fighter pilots, O’ Club, Memorials for fellow pilots, Hancock Yacht Club and its regatta, the Wing HQ, the Commanding General and Assistant Wing Commander, Chief of Staff and G-3, NIS, NADEP, and Marine officer wives. I was held captive, but it was exactly what I like reading about and kept me wanting more.” -Major General Michael Sullivan, USMC (Ret.)
