Beschreibungen

After leaving Vietnam as a decorated gunner, Calvin Jefferson "C. J" Floyd returned to the Victorian home on Denver's famed Bail Bondsman's Row where he'd been raised by his uncle. Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, he found a fast friend and kindred soul in Wiley Ames, a resilient World War II vet, former Skid Row derelict, and manager of a pawnshop in the city's Five Points neighborhood.   But Wiley and C. J. shared more than the scars of war: They both had an appreciation for rare memorabilia, and Wiley came across a lot of it at his shop in downtown Denver. So when Wiley is gunned down in an alley, C. J.'s already fragile world threatens to collapse. But with no leads and the sad case gone cold, C. J. forges ahead in a new direction as a bail bondsman and bounty hunter in his uncle's business.   Five years later, C. J. finds himself reopening his investigation of Wiley's death when he comes across one of his old friend's prized possessions at a flea market. It's just one clue, but it's enough to send C. J. off and running to make good on his promise to find the killer – and finally confront the ghosts of his own past.    Bestselling author Robert Greer has been hailed as a "taut, powerful writer" (The Plain Dealer). Fans of hardboiled detective stories or the novels of Walter Mosley will enjoy his series featuring a tough African American sleuth in the modern-day West.   First of State is the 8th book in the C. J. Floyd Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.  
Robert Greer, a native of Columbus, Ohio, spent his formative years in the steel-mill town of Gary, Indiana. He graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, in 1965 with a bachelor's degree and subsequently earned degrees in dentistry, medicine, and pathology from Howard University and Boston University, as well as a master's degree in creative writing, also from Boston University. He is a professor at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. In addition to authoring the C. J. Floyd Mysteries, Greer founded the High Plains Literary Review, where he serves as editor in chief, and has written medical texts and scientific articles. A longtime resident of Denver, he reviews books for a Denver NPR affiliate and raises cattle on a ranch in Wyoming.
