Bail bondsman CJ Floyd was hired by Carmen Nguyen to find her father, Langston Blue. Carmen thought her father had deserted her, but found out from her aunt that he never knew about her. Her aunt also told her that a popular politician is one of the reasons Langston went into hiding. After Carmen and Langston are reunited, the politician ends up dead and the police believe Langston is the murderer. To clear Langston, CJ must solve the mystery of what happened thirty-five years ago.
Mr. Greer's style of writing is smooth and fast-paced, which made for quick reading of this almost 400 page novel. You know you've read a good murder mystery when you finally find out whom the killer is and you want to slap yourself for not figuring it out. RESURRECTING LANGSTON BLUE had me in that spot. Mr. Greer had several plot lines rolling at the same time. The lines started at one spot, gradually separated, then merged to end the book with a bang.

Floyd quickly discovers that the dead congressman is Blue's former squad leader from his old Army unit. The plot thickens when the police connect Blue to the murder. Floyd's role turns defensive as he searches for clues to prove Blue's innocence and discovers evidence of political corruption, covert military death squads, shady journalism, and suspicions of ethnic cleansing. The plot is further complicated by conflicts in Floyd's romantic relationship with long-time girlfriend, Mavis, his desire to retire, and a vengeful ex-convict who blames Floyd for her brother's death and is out to exact her revenge on Floyd and his loved ones.
This was my first time reading a CJ Floyd mystery and I found the story to be engaging and suspenseful; albeit a bit lengthy and heavy on dialogue. Nonetheless, I think fans of the series will be delighted with this offering.
I found Langston Blue the best book yet in the series, riveting, well researched => the topics Greer covers make one think as well as be entertained.
