Mystery News on The Devil's Hatband

Denver author Robert Greer’s beloved mystery series about CJ Floyd, an African-American Denver-based bail bondsman, is back after a three year hiatus, during which Greer directed his writing time toward completing a textbook. In February 2017, Mysterious Press re-released most of the CJ Floyd backlist in handsomely redesigned e-books.

The Devil’s Hatband, the first title in the series, immediately captured readers when it was first released in 1996. The novel introduced crusty but loveable CJ and featured what is now recognized as Greer’s characteristic mix—accomplished prose; endearing characters; the geography and ethos of the American West; and the dangerous intermingling of modern science with greedy opportunists. With his fresh, suspenseful take on the modern mystery, Greer quickly established a loyal following.
