White Ghost: A Graham Gage Thriller by Steven Gore, published March 29, 2016 by Berkley

Book beginning:
The slug's impact wasn't anything like in the Hong Kong movies. It didn't throw Peter backward or knock him off his feet or send him twisting and flailing. No, it wasn't like that at all. His body just...went...limp. And it made no sense. He'd known for certain nobody would get hurt....
Page 56:
"Lester," Gage said. "I know you're just a guy trying to get along, support yourself, and stay out of trouble." 
Book description:
For over thirty years Graham Gage has faced down enemies both near and far, but now he faces one from within. Diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, Gage must delay treatment in order to repay the woman who saved his life in San Francisco's Chinatown thirty years earlier when he was homicide detective.

Sounds like an intriguing story. This week I'm spotlighting The Obsession by Nora Roberts. Happy reading!

Sounds like there's lots of internal and external conflict in this book. I like that. I'm sure I'd enjoy this story.
My Friday post features LONGSHOT.

This is the first time I've seen this book and it sounds good - I'll have to start at the beginning of the series though. Here's my Friday meme
