Chasing Smoke by Bill Cameron


Portland, Oregon homicide detective "Skin" Kadash, out on medical leave while fighting bladder cancer, is asked by his partner to look over some of her case notes on a few suspicious suicides of local prominent men who are also fighting cancer. It seems all the suicides have a common link with Kadash's doctor. As Kadash fights "the rat clawing his stomach," he also fights for his life against his own police force and a shrewd killer. This tale of personal hardship, relentless dedication to duty and deceit offers fans of wisecracking, flawed detectives a morsel of fine Noirish fiction worth lighting up.
