What to expect

Carlucci's Edge brings to life a chilling scenario in the bleak urban landscape that is twenty-first-century San Francisco and marks the return of Lt. Frank Carlucci, first seen in Destroying Angel.

The San Francisco Police Department is stonewalling seemingly unrelated murder investigations, and Carlucci is determined to find out why. His unauthorized investigation leads him to an insidious black market run by top political officials.

“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.”


“The characters are well-crafted, the setting interesting and vivid, and the pacing is brisk.”

Uncle Hugo's Newsletter

“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.”
