Original Cynby C. Rodney James
Saturn collides with Venus as disillusioned firearms examiner
C. Rodney James, Ph.D. is a forensic firearms examiner (currently involved in ongoing cases) and firearms writer in both the popular and scientific press. In a previous incarnation he was a university professor teaching courses in film and television at Concordia University, Montréal P.Q. Canada.
Saturn collides with Venus as disillusioned firearms examiner Chris Vickers and 18-going-on-30 Cyn Longacre investigate murder and kidnapping to their mutual astonishment.
Original Cyn presents two exciting new investigators to mystery readers -- Cynthia Longacre, a more than bright and pretty eighteen-year old, and Chris Vickers, a fortyish forensic firearms examiner with a sense of humor. They pursue a murderous gang through the historic warehouse district of Cleveland to the posh estates of the distant suburbs, following bullets, cartridge cases, and guns. They may even fall in love. HOWARD Mc'CORD, Poet, Novelist, Author, THE MAN WHO WALKED TO THE MOON.
As an inveterate fan of crime novels, I have one question about C. Rodney James -- where the hell has this guy been? And as a life long firearms aficionado, my question goes double. Rodney James has combined great story telling, exquisitely satisfying writing and an extraordinary knowledge and love of firearms into a unique novel -- Original Cyn. His anti-hero protagonist, Chris Vickers is a peer of Tony Hillerman's Jim Chee, and of Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware. I guarantee when you finish this most satisfying read, you will want more. JAMES O.E. NORELL, firearms writer, political consultant, television writer, co-writer of the Emmy-award winning film, THE INCIDENT.
