Since being released as an ebook in 2012, “Telegraph Hill” has gathered rave reviews from readers and reviewers for spot-on riffs on San Francisco, and brilliant crime writing in the vein of Parker and Lehane.

In “Telegraph Hill”, private detective Ray Infantino searches for a missing girl named Tania. The case takes him to San Francisco, the city he abandoned years ago after his fiance was killed. Thrust into his old city haunts, Ray finds that Tania may not be lost at all. Tania saw a murder; and a criminal gang, the Black Fist Triad, wants to make sure she never sees anything again.

Ray enlists help from an old flame, Dominique, but now he has three women on his mind. Meeting with various witnesses—ex-cops, prostitutes, skinheads—he relentlessly tracks the evidence. But the hunt for Tania fires his obsession with avenging the murder of his fiance. When the triad retaliates, and blood begins to flow, Ray must walk the knife edge between revenge and redemption on the streets of San Francisco.

What they’re saying:

“. . . Nardizzi is an excellent craftsman and his writing is the antithesis of the one-dimensional, overheated thriller. His descriptions of San Francisco and Boston are spot-on and he manages to create a compelling neo-noir atmosphere with seeming ease. His descriptions of Telegraph Hill are keenly evocative.” – All Things Crime Blog

“I don’t usually consider myself such a fan of noir, but this book firmly fits within that genre (as well as the thriller and lawyer/thriller genres). It’s also, however, a really good read, with well-drawn characters, a plot which moves right along, intimate portrayals of Boston and San Francisco, and an ending which leaves room for more. As a bonus, the prose is thoughtful and poetic. John Nardizzi has written a good thriller which is also honestly a novel, and avoids being one of those briefly involving but all-too-soon completely forgettable books we all have likely read plenty of. Well worth the price of admission! ” Amazon Review
