#BuyThisBook: "First of State" by Robert Greer

Wracking your tinsel and sugar plum addled brain for gift ideas? We asked our publishing peers and peeps to help us recommend a book every day from Black Friday to Christmas Eve!

First of State by Robert Greer
Recommended by Caitlin Hamilton Summie, book publicist and marketer
Perfect for mystery buffs, fans of African-American fiction, and people who love to read about the West.

"A prequel to the popular CJ Floyd mystery series. Equally a white-knuckle-ride murder mystery and a tale of a traumatized young Vietnam veteran coming to terms with his past, First of State features the kind of fresh characters, street-smart dialogue, and ingenious plot twists that have made this series a critical and commercial success."

We'd like to receive money via an offshore bank account, but that hasn't happened yet. When my dad was in radio back in the '50s, a local baker used to sneak over in the dead of night and fill the back seat of his car with bread and pastries. We would NOT object to this. Please review our review policy here. And let us know if we should leave the car outside the garage tonight.
