Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Last seen in 2005's Resurrecting Langston Blue, CJ Floyd has retired from bail bonding and bounty hunting, and opened a collectibles store in Denver with the help of a friend and fellow antiques dealer, Lenny McCabe. The straight and narrow life is clearly not for CJ, no matter how much he and his fianc e, Mavis Sundee, might wish otherwise. He buys stolen books from a man who's shot dead minutes later, gets caught up in the search for the killer and a $1-million daguerreotype that was in one of the books, and then learns his old nemesis, Celeste Deepstream, is still on his trail, seeking revenge for her brother's death. Greer layers on the complexity up to the very end, drawing deeply on Old West history and the many facets of African-American life in cowboy country to develop rich characters and plot lines; even if you get the big picture early on, it's worth finishing for the subtle details. Several loose ends suggest further sequels. (Oct.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
MNow running an antiques store, longtime Denver bail bondsman C.J. Floyd buys two rare books on the American West from a seller who is promptly shot dead. Then someone tries to blow up his shop, and it becomes apparent that nemesis Celeste Deepstream (Resurrecting Langston Blue) has returned. Although a tad wordy, the plot ambles along with lots of investigating by a bevy of interesting characters, and the African American community in Denver is a refreshingly different setting. This is a series to watch. Greer, a practicing surgical pathologist, research scientist, and professor of pathology and medicine, lives in Denver. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
“Greer is a literary craftsman who takes you for a good ride and The Fourth Perspective is a great, convoluted mystery, possibly Greer’s best.”
Denver Post

    Great mystery

    Blaming C.J. Floyd for her brother¿s death, Celeste Deepstream is determined to even the score by killing C.J. 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
