About this title


When ex-disc jockey and record company executive LeRoy Polk turns up dead, his daughter hires bail bondsman and investigator CJ Floyd to find out who killed him, a case that leads the sleuth back into a perilous world of scandal, black exploitation, and organized crime during the 1950s. Tour.


If you haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting C. J. Floyd, Robert Greer's Denver-based bail bondsman and private eye, you've now got two chances. The latest Floyd adventure, which explores the death of a black musical legend named Daddy Doo-Wop, offers a wealth of detail on everything from the record business to sex change operations. And available in paperback is Greer's heralded debut novel, The Devil's Hatband, a lively outing set amongst the environmentalist movement in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
