The way of the warrior
February 6, 2018
Kristi Belcamino has whipped up a noirish, hardboiled “Who Are Those Guys” thriller that has all the standard-issue tropes and riffs of the genre, and yet always manages to surprise. (There’s a scene in the Alps, and our Gia has a fast car, and surely you’ll be thinking . . . but wait and see..)
Anyway, Those Guys are messing with Gia and threatening everyone she knows and lives, and from her home in San Francisco she lights out for several places in the Bay Area and in Europe in order to solve the mystery of her parents' death, and returns back where she came from, where we finally find out who Those Guys are.
Fast-paced, intelligent, and very suspenseful, you’ll find out what the City of the Dead means at the reveal of this well plotted thriller. Of course, if you’re from the Bay Area I suspect you already know.
First of four.
NOTES AND ASIDES: Guns, knives, morgues, cursing, location, location, location.
