    John F. Nardizzi in his new book, “Telegraph Hill” published by Merrimack Media introduces us to Ray Infantino.




    From the back cover:   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 murdered.




    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




    There is something about San Francisco that causes private investigators there to be different from private investigators in Los Angeles.  Must be the hills or the fog or maybe a combination.  Ray Infantino is a modern day P.I. that behaves like the classic P.I.’s which is just terrific.  The case he is working on brings him back to San Francisco and that is when a simple case of a missing girl takes on epic qualities.  Seedy back alleys, narrow escapes, lots of women, a murder, the Triad and revenge are all ingredients in this action investigative thriller that not only puts Ray’s life at stake but others as well.  “Telegraph Hill” is very exciting and quite a page-turner.  I am actually hoping that Mr. Nardizzi gives us another adventure with Ray Infantino.

    Nardizzi's novel will grasp readers full attention as soon as they begin this thrilling adventure. The author whisks us back and forth between Boston and San Francisco as we attempt to unearth a complex mystery. It's fast-paced and jam-packed with action and suspense. A couple of chuckles along the way soften the blow of extreme details that are spot on thanks to Nardizzi's former experience as an investigator. There's even room for a sequel to this debut once we reach the jaw-dropping finish. Fans of crime novels will be talking about this one for a long time.
