MIAMI - Jan. 12, 2022 - PRLog -- Retired Physician Shows His Writing Chops at Age 93!

The Deadly Blue Diamond, a fast-paced thriller, pits a young surgeon against vicious mobsters, crooked cops, and Chicago politicians. Little Louie, who killed his first man at age 15, organizes a robbery to steal the Blue Diamond, a power symbol, that belonged to Al Capone. The heist goes bad. Rookie cops shoot Louie's accomplice after he swallowed the diamond. A young surgeon, who lost his confidence in the Korean War, operates for the gunshot, but doesn't find the diamond and the patient dies.

Dr. John Raffensperger grew up in a small town on the Illinois River. He wasn't an athlete but was an omnivorous reader and spent time roaming the woods and canoeing. He graduated from the University of Illinois Medical School in 1953. After learning basic medicine and surgery, how to set broken bones and to deliver babies during his internship at Cook County Hospital, he spent two years as a medical officer on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific. His experiences there are memorialized in "The Ship's Cat," a story in his medical essays book.
