Description


"Russo has an excellent eye for the urban landscape and] the crime writer's well-tuned ear for vernacular ... from street punks right up to the high-level officials." -- Asimov's Science Fiction

In the San Francisco of the future, technology advances while society declines. Against a vividly realized urban backdrop, one of the police force's last honest cops is trying to trace the connection between a series of seemingly unrelated murders. Detective Frank Carlucci manages to thwart his crooked department's efforts to block his investigations -- only to discover an even deeper pit of corruption in the form of a black market run by political officials.
Author Richard Paul Russo twice received the Philip K. Dick Award: in 1989, for his second novel, Subterranean Gallery, and in 2001 for Ship of Fools. This hard-boiled thriller is the second volume of the critically acclaimed Carlucci Trilogy, consisting of Destroying Angel, Carlucci's Edge, and Carlucci's Heart. All three works offer a gripping combination of classic noir mystery and futuristic cyberpunk fiction.

"One of the best blends of SF and mystery yet written." -- Science Fiction Chronicle

"Russo's latest SF crime novel is mean streets, callous megacorps, venal politicians, and ordinary lowlifes in a jam ... Russo's characters succeed in stirring our empathy, but their strangeness is what holds our attention." -- Analog

About the Author


American science-fiction author Richard Paul Russo twice received the Philip K. Dick Award: in 1989, for his second novel, Subterranean Gallery, and in 2001 for Ship of Fools. His critically acclaimed Carlucci Trilogy, consisting of Destroying Angel, Carlucci's Edge, and Carlucci's Heart, were praised by Science Fiction Chronicle as "Truly gripping . . . a lot more realistic than most near-future SF, as well as being just plain better written than most of it."
