Bio:

Straight-talking, straight shooting ex-Marine who came to San Angelisco on the trail of Jesus Martinez, a notorious “coyote,” or people smuggler, who murdered Books’s commanding officer. Unfortunately, the well-connected Martinez has used his allies in the Mexican Mafia to disappear into Trejo Heights, where he operates as a freelance enforcer for various gangs.

Needing a reason to stick around in order to continue his hunt for Martinez, Books arranged to be seconded to the SCU, where his country common sense and deadly accuracy have proved an asset. Moreover, Books’s distinct style – he’s rarely seen without his Stetson – has made him a favourite subject for the media, a fact that publicity-hungry Mayor Pendelton relishes.

A skilled boxer, Books is a ranked amateur cruiserweight, and there is stiff competition between the SAPD and the Bochco County Sheriff’s Department teams to recruit him before their yearly face-off. Books is also active in the Police Athletics League, where he coaches disadvantaged youth in boxing and baseball.
