At the beginning of The Riddle of Billy Gibbs, the mutilated body of a black man is found hanging by the neck from a tree.

Sheriff Steve Martinez is dismayed, for the victim, Billy Gibbs, had just been acquitted in the rape of a white woman. Steve's bailiwick, Porcupine County, is 99 per cent white--and he suspects violent racists.

But how could Gibbs, a truck mechanic just out of the Army, have possessed such a large bankroll and so many expensive toys?

With the help of law enforcement officers across five states, Steve doggedly tracks the clues.

He must deal with a clutch of neo-Nazis, including a gorgeous but vicious woman whose habits smack of Fifty Shades of Grey.

This sixth novel in the Steve Martinez mystery series vividly explores a troubling side of American life.

I love all of Henry Kisor's Steve Martinez books. The Riddle of Billy Gibbs was outstanding, as I've come to expect. Kisor's tales are well-written, believable, exciting. I could barely stand to put the book down while I slept.
