After kidnapping and beating up his girlfriend Mavis, C.J. and Celeste tangle but she escapes and now is teamed up with Russian Mafioso Alexie Borg who will help her kill the former bounty hunter and bail bondsman.----------- C.J. sold his share of the business to his partner Flora Jean and opened Ike¿s Spot: Vintage Western collectibles after the trauma both C.J and Mavis suffered, . A college student comes in the store to sell him two books which he buys. When he goes to his car, student Luis Del Mora is killed and C.J. later discovers that in the book cover of one of the books was a million dollar daguerreotype of the golden spike railroad ceremony in 1869. Luis¿s mother Theresa hires Flora Jean to find out who killed her son.------------- - Alexie has a colleague blow up C.J¿s store but most of the damage occurs to the adjoining store of his landlord. C.J. gathers his friends to help flush out Celeste who is determined now to take her nemesis out on her own Flora Jean, knowing C.J. is broke, asks for his help in tracking down Luis¿s killer. He minimizes the danger to Mavis, but realizes he is anticipating the adrenaline rush that he experiences when he is on a dangerous hunt. He wonders if he can find a way to stop Celeste and continue with his antique business and do some dangerous jobs without angering Mavis.---------- The latest C.J. mystery is filled with lots of action, intrigue, and a spot of romance. C.J. is the original tough guy but in THE FOURTH PERSPECTIVE is portrayed with more vulnerability then he usually is. This humanizes him and makes the readers root for him especially because he needs his friends to be safe and not worry about his safety before their own needs. Robert Greer has written a crime caper that is loaded with intrigue, double-crosses and dangerous games of cat and mouse.------ Harriet Klausner
