Overview

This is the COMPLETE VERSION of "Four Nines Fine (Book 7 of the Jay Leicester Mysteries Series)" by critically acclaimed southern author JC Simmons:

One hundred million dollars' worth of pure gold traded for stolen military arms... the brutal murder of a Mexican Governor... the involvement of La Eme, the Mexican Mafia, Outlaw Motorcycle gangs, and violent street gangs, and a contract ordered on his life... These are the pieces of the puzzle Jay Leicester (pronounced "Lester") must put together to save not only himself, but those of innocent people working with him.

Asked to recover and airplane from Ciudad Victoria, Mexico, Jay is inadvertently drawn into unthinkable horror. In his unaccustomed role as prey, Jay is forced into consideration of his own mortality and those close to him. Jolted into taking stock of his life, into acknowledging that through the years he has become more of a loner than he ever intended to be...

As he goes about the increasingly dangerous business of keeping himself alive, following the trail of gold smugglers from South America to Mexico to urban and rural areas of Mississippi, Jay begins to see the only way to avoid more deaths is to shatter the opposing forces.

Here - in a novel exploding with action, surprises, and suspense is J.C. Simmons writing at the top of his game. FOUR NINES FINE is one of the most entertaining works we have yet from this gifted and prolific writer from Mississippi.

Meet the Author

JC Simmons is the author of an Ernest Hemingway biography, several short stories and ten critically acclaimed serial mystery novels, known as the "Jay Leicester Mysteries Series". Included in the series are: Blood On The Vine, Some People Die Quick, Blind Overlook, Icy Blue Descent, The Electra File, Popping the Shine, Four Nines Fine, The Underground Lady, Akel Dama, and The Candela of Cancri, all of which have been recently re-released as ebooks by Nighttime Press LLC. From the Author's mouth: My flying career and writing in general was inspired by a single book titled, Fate is the Hunter, by Ernest K. Gann. Writing specifically as a style was manifest due to a single book titled, Ernest Hemingway: A Life Story, by Carlos Baker, Hemingway’s official biographer. A friend and Emergency Room doctor, Edgar Grissom, who would later publish the definitive bibliography on Hemingway, Ernest Hemingway: A Descriptive Bibliography, loaned me his copy of Baker’s bio one summer back in the early 70s. The rest, as they say, is history. During the next few years, I read everything by and about Hemingway. Never has a writer influenced me more. My first foray into the world of letters was to be about Hemingway. John Evans, owner of Lemuria Books, and my mentor in all things literati, pointed out that there were literally hundreds of bios on Hemingway. However, a scholarly study on the man and his work had never been done in a Q&A format. So was born the “Workbook.” Evans, Grissom, Evan’s store manager, Tom Gerald and his assistant Valerie Sims, all collaborated on the manuscript. It took two years to finish. I learned much on the journey. It was from this endeavor with the Hemingway bio that emerged the Jay Leicester Murder/Mystery series. Even the name Leicester came from Hemingway’s brother, who also published a bio, My Brother Ernest Hemingway, in 1961. Hemingway once said he “learned to write landscapes by looking at the paintings of Cezanne in the Louvre in Paris,” and “that it’s not how much one puts into a book, but what the writer leaves out that makes the story.” From him I learned how to write true dialogue, and how to add the sights, sounds, and smells so that the reader feels he is there. While I did not try and copy his style, thousands have tried and failed, I did take what he offered and used it well, I hope. You the reader will make that determination. J.C. Simmons was born, raised, educated, and stayed in the great State of Mississippi. He is a retired Airline/Corporate pilot and lives with his wife on the family farm in Union, Mississippi where he is working on a autobiographical work detailing his life and times as a pilot.

Well written. Many twists and turns but the mystery of who done it is kept to the end. Can be long winded-but keeps readers hanging on to the end.

I enjoyed the story. It was a quick and entertaining read. I did not give it 4 or 5 stars because the ending was quite abrupt. I felt that a lot was left unresolved.

This story is put together tightly, that is to say I see no weaknesses in this author's ability to use not only those literary skills - dialog, plot, setting, etc. - required to engage the ready, but he also has that extra "knack" for storytelling. Seems to me there are more authors with the former skills than with the latter. Mr. Simmons possesses the full repertoire that, at the end of day delivers a well-conceived and entertaining tale of mystery and imagination. Highly recommend this book and esp. this author.
