The Candela Of Cancriby Jc Simmons
.C. Simmons, Mississippi's legendary author, returns with the tenth in the Jay Leicester series. Familiar and beloved characters, Rose English, Shack Runnels, Hebrone Opshinsky, and B.W., the Siamese cat, join in a medical thriller set in the Deep South and Colorado Rockies. From Gulf of Mexico waters to mountain ski resorts, Leicester deals with the disappearance of close friend and retired Radiologist, J.D. Ballard, who has fought long and hard for FDA approval of a noninvasive cure for cancer he thinks is being suppressed by the medical aristocracy simply for power, money, and prestige.
The Candela of Cancri is J.C. Simmons at his best with his trademark tight plotting, pitch-perfect dialogue, and Hemingway-like sparseness. Readers will believe or not believe, love or hate the ending of this medical Mystery/Thriller.
