Book Review: “Astride a Pink Horse”


In Astride a Pink Horse (North Atlantic Books, March), Denver author Robert Greer breaks from his popular CJ Floyd mystery series to introduce a new trio of amateur detectives. When a retired Air Force nuclear missile maintenance technician is found murdered in an old missile silo, the suspects range from a right-wing cattle rancher to a group of nuclear arms protestors. In his typical conversational style, Greer combines the compelling historical narratives of World War II and the Cold War with a whodunit plot that keeps readers guessing until the very end.

Tip: Meet Greer at a reading and book signing on April 4, at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover Book Store on Colfax Avenue.
