Book Review: Devil's Hatband

Title The Devil's Hatband
Author Robert Greer
Rating ****
Tags mystery, series, blacks, african americans, c.j floyd, colorado 

First in the series about C. J. Floyd, a black bail bondsman and bounty hunter in Denver, Colorado. Floyd is hired to track a woman involved in an anti-ranching environmental terror group and find some important documents she holds. Floyd finds where she is, but when he arrives there it is to find the sheriff investigating her murder, and no documents in sight.

I found it hard to get into the book, mainly because C. J. seemed more macho than is my taste, but I was soon won over, both to the characters and the pleasure of an interesting plot.
