9780312324711: The Big Boom (A North Beach Mystery)

Set in San Francisco before the high-tech markets went bust, The Big Boom features Dante Mancuso, an obsessive private investigator who works the streets of his hometown where he's known by his nose and his nickname: The Pelican.


Settling in and hoping to settle down, his peace is shattered when an old North Beach family asks him to find their daughter---one of Dante's former sweethearts. Though the case alienates his longtime lover Marilyn Visconte, Dante has no choice but to plunge into the shadows of the dot-com revolution.


A tightrope of a novel and a perfect modern example of classic noir, The Big Boom is a taut story about familial duplicity, personal greed, and the desperate pull of love in many forms.

Praise for Domenic Stansberry

"Stansberry is an extraordinarily evocative writer."
---George Pelecanos, author of The Night Gardener

"Broodingly atmospheric . . . Readers will find themselves absorbed."

---Booklist (starred review) on The Big Boom

"Lean, literate, atmospheric stuff . . ."
---Kirkus Reviews on The Big Boom

"Chasing the Dragon is noir in its finest form with near-flawless execution and style."
